Mike Gottman Youth Football Camp
Durant High School will host the ninth annual Mike Gottman Youth Football Camp this June and registration is now open.
The annual summer skills camp is run by Gottman and the rest of Durant’s football coaching staff and teaches kids from third through (incoming) ninth grade the fundamentals of the high school game. Everything from specific positional drills to physical conditioning is covered and flag football games close out each day.
Campers need to bring football cleats, solid navy blue athletic shorts and a grey t-shirt if they have clothing in those colors, a towel, sunscreen, extra socks, underwear and a sack lunch. The coaches will sell hot dogs, hamburgers, bananas, apples, chips and Gatorade. Gottman recommends all athletes drink 64 ounces of water per day for five consecutive days before coming to camp.
This year’s camp runs from June 3 through 6 at the Ron Frost Athletic Complex on campus, 4748 Cougar Path. Each day begins at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 4:30 p.m. unless inclement weather hits the Durant area. The cost is $125 per camper plus a $5 online processing fee and all campers must be registered by 11:59 p.m. June 1.
