Boys Developmental Football Program

                     

 
The State College Assembly of God Boys Developmental Football Program has a two-fold purpose. First, to give men an opportunity in a favorable setting to share their Christian faith with boys in the State College and surrounding communities. We will emphasize character development and Christian values. Second, to develop fundamental individual and team football skills and techniques in boys who have an interest in playing football. We will emphasize conditioning, flexibility, fitness, dedication and good sportsmanship.
 
Christian Faith: We are a Community Christian Program. Each practice, game, meeting, activity, etc. will have Christian prayer. Coaches will lead out in prayer (players may also if they desire). Coaches and Volunteers will also share scriptures and how they apply to today's challenges and opportunities for the boys. All participants will be expected to treat others as they would want to be treated. Foul language, fighting, taunting, trash talking, etc. will not be tolerated.
 

For 2012 we have three programs to offer:  SPRING Monday Night Football: SUMMER Camp: and FALL Program - flag, pee wee and midget.
 
Spring Monday Night Football:  Each night will start with football exercises, a special guest will conduct a mini-clinic on a football specific skill, then teams will be formed, short team practices will occur and flag football games will complete the evening.
 
Summer Camp:  This is an intensive week night camp.  The first three nights are focused on team and individual skills - offense, defense, special teams, speed/agility.  Stance, blocking, tackling, running, throwing, catching, kicking, receiving, coverage, etc.  Wednesday night will feature QB challenge, punt/pass/kick and 40-yd dash competitions.  Thursday night will finish the week with flag football games.
 
Fall Football Program: Boys will be divided by weight, age and skill level in teams of 14-16. Practices will be somewhat intense and demanding. FOR PEE WEES AND MIDGETS THIS IS A FULL CONTACT FOOTBALL PROGRAM. Conditioning, exercising, stretching, and flexibility will be stressed. Basic individual football skills will be taught including running, stance, blocking, tackling, catching, throwing, etc. Team football skills will also be taught including formations, schemes, offense, defense, kicking, plays, etc. Coaches will teach each player two offensive and defensive positions. Coaches may hand out playbooks or individual plays for the boys to memorize. A coach once said that this is not a contact sport, but it is a collision sport. Coaches will work very hard with each boy to prepare him for game situations to minimize the possibility for injury. Coaches will determine playing time and positions on each team keeping in mind physical capability, mental focus, dedication, game fatigue, work ethic, etc.
