The Marco Eagles football program will again host the Jr. Trojan Football Camp.

There will be two consecutive camps at Winterberry Park, conducted by Lely High School coaches and team members, along with Eagles coaches.

Lely Coach Steve Pricer will lead his staff in conducting the camps on June 22 to 25 and June 29 to July 3.

Camp times are 4 to 8 p.m. There will be sessions on basic football fundamentals of blocking, tackling, pass-catching and running. There also will be instruction for individuals at each position.

Cost of the camp is $100 for one week, or $150 for two weeks. Financial aid will be available on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Greg West, president of the Marco Eagles football program, said more than 150 kids took part a year ago.

“Instead of holding the camps during the morning, like we did last year, we are moving it to later in the day so it won’t be as hot,” he said.

“Everyone gets a Jr. Trojan T-shirt. For more information contact West at 825-7592, or g.west1@comcast.net. To register online go to marcoeagles.com.
