2013 LFG Football PA Camp Sets New Record
For the second consecutive year, Lauren's First and Goal welcomed more than 2,000 campers for its 10th annual football camp held on Sunday, June 2 at Lafayette College's Metzgar Athletics Complex in Easton, Pa.
The event also shattered last year's fundraising effort, netting more than $103,000 - the first time breaking the $100,000 plateau.
The athletes were coached by 327 college coaches who volunteered their time.
LFG also celebrated another successful year at Otterbein University in Ohio with almost 500 athletes turning out on Saturday, June 22. More than $18,000 was raised at that event and 100 college coaches guided the athletes through their drills for the day.
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.
