These two high-energy, non-contact camps will allow players to develop and learn techniques and fundamentals on offense and defense from the ECU coaches. Passing, blocking, running, tackling, catching and defending are all skills that will be emphasized during each of the camps.  Additionally, campers will learn the value of teamwork as they utilize their new skills and compete in fast-paced games of 7-on-7 and Razzle Dazzle.

No pads are needed - just workout clothing (shirts, shorts and shoes) and a great attitude.  The cost for the camps on Wednesday and Thursday are $50 per camper. It is walk-up registration only as payment should be given in the form of cash or money order. The registration will begin at 8 a.m. each day.

Then on Friday, June 18th, two camps for youth (boys and girls), entering the first through eighth grades, will be held at Norris Field with a morning session at 9 a.m. (for grades 1-5) and an afternoon session at 1:30 p.m. (grades 6-8).  The high-energy, non-contact youth camps allow younger football players to develop and learn techniques at all positions from the ECU coaches and many current Tiger football players. Passing, punting, blocking, running, tackling, catching, kicking, returning and defending are all skills that are emphasized during the camp.

The cost is $40 per camper for each session (morning and afternoon). It is walk-up registration only and the payment should be made in cash or money order.
