Anthem Prep Academy coach hosts football camp
STAFF REPORT ~ 4/10/2013
The 9th Annual Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp is under way.
Anthem Prep football coach Mark Huston invites youth, ages 6 – 18, to turn out from 8 a.m. – 10 a.m., every Saturday at Anthem Community Park.
The one-time Northern Arizona University quarterback promises a challenging and productive experience throughout the months of April, May, June and July.
Huston sets the camp up to mimic workouts used by athletes at the higher levels, with a series of 12 stations focusing on developing different skills in a fast-paced environment. He touts a 10 to 1 ratio of athletes to coaches, allowing for personalized instruction. The camp is designed for athletes of any level.
Along with a number of experienced youth coaches, campers also receive instruction from graduates of the camp, many of whom are current Boulder Creek High School football players.
Huston said looking ahead to the 2013-14 school year there will be close to 50 former Let It Fly Football Drills & Skills Camp attendees playing for the Boulder Creek varsity, junior varsity and freshman teams.
After working with 176 athletes last year Huston is hopeful this year’s camp will draw more than 200.
Campers can pay $30 per Saturday session, or get progressively better deals for committing to more weekly sessions.
The Anthem Community Park field is located at 4700 West Fortune Drive in Anthem.
