Arkansas State Announces Camp Dates

- From the Arkansas State University Sports Information Department -

Arkansas State head football coach Steve Roberts is gearing up for his 2010 individual and team camps that are set to take place during the upcoming summer months. ASU will host a youth camp as well.

Roberts will be hosting individual camp and team camps June 9-11 and a junior/senior elite camp June 13 and July 24. The youth camp will be held June 14-16.

"We are very excited to host these camps again this summer," said Roberts. "We're ready to work with these young players and help them to improve their football skills."

The individual and team camps are open to students grades 7-12, and check-in for both camps begins June 9 at 11:00 a.m. Players can choose to stay overnight during the camps, and camp rates will increase after pre-registration concludes June 1. Early registration individual camp rates at $195 overnight and $170 for day instruction only. Team camp rates vary by the number of players, and teams should register together.

Roberts' junior/senior elite camps are open to high school juniors and seniors. Registration will begin at 11:00 a.m. with instruction running through 6:00 p.m. both days. Tuition for each day is $25.

This year's youth camp is open to girls and boys ages 7-12 and will cost $85 for the three days with limited scholarships available. Fundamentals of football will be taught along with punting, passing and kicking being introduced to the campers. Campers will participate in a scrimmage, tour the ASU football facility, get a demonstration in the weight room and listen to daily speakers. For more information on the youth camp, contact Kyle Shipp or Jason Gregory at 870-972-2082.

Primary medical insurance is required for participation in the camps, and a $50 deposit is due with the registration form. Players should bring camp clothes, football cleats, a helmet and a mouthpiece each day. Individual and team campers should bring shoulder pads and a jersey as well. Students staying overnight should bring toiletries, pillow, sheets and a blanket.
