Lauren’s First and Goal Football Camp is a one day instructional clinic 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, ect. 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.
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, ect. to make themselves comfortable for the day.
Please see the links to the right to view last year’s coaching list, schedule for the day, travel info and other pertinent information. The coaching list for 2014 will be posted about a week prior to the camp dates as it changes daily as more coaches are added. If you have a question regarding the attendance of a specific coach, please contact that coach directly.
Players who are CURRENTLY in 8th through 11th grade are eligible to attend - graduating class years 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018.

2014 Volunteer Coaches Needed
The key to making the LFG Football Camps successful has been the hundreds of coaches who volunteer their time every year.
Any college coach interested in volunteering at the 2014 LFG camps in Pennsylvania or Ohio, can email John Troxell at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com with his name, name of school and position coached.
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.
