A select number of spots remain available for Duke football’s Youth Camp, Kicking Camp & Big Man Camp, which take place from June 9-15 at the Duke football facilities on the university’s west campus.
Each camp provides specialized instruction and evaluation by the Duke football coaching staff. Through live drills, film review and hands-on training, Duke coaches aim to make each participant better at their respective position. At each camp, members of Duke’s coaching staff bring their specialized knowledge and experience and implement it in a structured coaching environment for each position.
Led by reigning ACC Coach of the Year David Cutcliffe and his staff, the Blue Devils continued their rise on the college football ladder last season and advanced to the Belk Bowl following the most successful campaign at Duke in nearly two decades. In Cutcliffe’s five seasons, Duke has won more games (21) than the previous the previous 12 seasons combined. Additionally, two members of the 2012 Blue Devils – quarterback Sean Renfree and wide receiver Conner Vernon – moved on to the NFL, giving Duke four players in the NFL over the last four seasons.
Duke football’s specialty camps are limited by space and availability. These camps are offered on a first-come, first-serve basis. To register, visit the Duke Football Camp Homepage at http://www.active.com/football-camp/durham-nc/duke-football-camp-2013.
