2012 LFG Football Camps Set New Records
Lauren´s First and Goal welcomed a record 2,105 campers for its ninth annual football camp held on Sunday, June 3 at Lafayette College´s Metzgar Athletics Complex in Easton, Pa. The event also shattered last year´s fundraising effort, netting more than $85,000.
The third annual LFG Football Camp Ohio was held at Otterbein University on Sunday, June 17. Nearly 500 high school student-athletes attended the camp, which raised more than $16,000 for pediatric brain tumor research. The athletes were coached by 110 college coaches who volunteered their time.
The annual LFG Football Camps are open to student-athletes who will be entering grades 9 through 12 this fall. During the event, athletes are divided into small groups and receive instruction in a variety of offensive and defensive skills from volunteer college coaches from around the country.
The camps are the primary fundraiser for the foundation and donations fund pediatric brain tumor research, patient services and family support.
Thank you all to all the campers and their families, coaches and volunteers who joined us this year!
LFG Skills & Drills Manual
Football coaches everywhere will benefit from the same techniques used by top college and professional teams that are featured in the Manual of Football Drills and Skills, released by Lauren´s First and Goal Foundation in May 2011.
Manual of Football Drills and Skills is designed to provide coaching ideas from the best in the profession while increasing awareness of pediatric brain tumors and raising funds to help find a cure. All of the material, including drills for game-management, strength and conditioning, offense, defense and special teams, was contributed by more than 130 volunteer coaches from Division I, II and III and the professional ranks.
