Helping families who are battling childhood cancer
Lauren's First and Goal Football Camp
Lauren’s First and Goal Football Camp is a one-day instructional clinic held in both Pennsylvania and Ohio that is taught by volunteer college coaches from across the country and all divisions. It is the largest one-day camp in the country, with over 325 college coaches donating their time and talents.
The player to coach ratio is better than 8:1. Players are grouped by position and class year, and alternate between offensive and defensive drills and skills throughout the day. Players at the PA camp may also elect to work with the kicking specialist coaches for the day, or alternate between kicking and another position.
The camp is not a combine – there is no height/weight measurements, no timed run, etc. It is an opportunity to learn, improve skills, showcase talents, experience being coached by college coaches and be exposed to the opportunities to continue one’s career as a student athlete at the college level. ALL proceeds from the camp benefit pediatric brain tumor research and cancer services.
Please see the links to the right to view the coaching list, schedule for the day, travel info and other pertinent information from the 2014 camps.
Players who are CURRENTLY in 8th through 12th grade are eligible to attend each year.
This reflects a change in the NCAA camp eligibility rules, allowing student athletes who are currently in 12th grade to participate.
Parents and high school coaches are welcome to attend the camp to observe for the day, and to bring items such as camp chairs, sun shelter, coolers, etc. to make themselves comfortable for the day.

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.
