While the fall football season is still a few months away, offseason programs run by the London Minor Football Association (LMFA) – which are open to everyone – have been in full swing throughout the winter.
Every Friday night this winter at Centrefield Sports in London, about 100 girls and boys are having fun and getting better at the LMFA Indoor Skills Camp. This non-contact camp was the first football skills camp in London and is now into its eighth year. The camp has become bigger and better every year, mainly thanks to our great roster of coaches. As well, student volunteers from Laurier HS, Saunders HS, Catholic Central HS and South HS provide great role models for the players while passing along their knowledge of the game and their experience.
“I don’t need the community hours, I just love working with the kids, so count me in every year,” says Kevin Dickens from Laurier HS.
Players take the field for 90 minutes of drills and skills, including agility, footwork, ball handling, and introductions to blocking and tackling. With an emphasis on having fun and teaching fundamentals, the camp is great for new players as well as returning players looking to stay active.
This summer, LMFA will host the 2nd annual QB passing camp for aspiring quarterbacks and receivers, while a brand new lineman camp will also start up – both at Centrefield Sports.
Looking ahead, the registration for the fall house league season is already open online for everyone in the Under 10, Under 12 and Under 14 age divisions.
