AYFL summer camp is a great opportunity for players to practice and prepare for the fall season. Camp will take a developmental approach; it is not about winning or losing, but gaining the skills that will prepare you to be successful in the upcoming seasons. During this camp, your child will be able to work with experienced coaches including retired NFL players, coaches from the Ashburn high schools, and, potentially, some special guests! We will be announcing who will be at camp as the camp approaches, but we are so excited about what we have in store!
Everyday, your child will be able to learn skills including stances, tackling, pass routes, and offensive/defensive plays, and will prepare for an end-of-the-week scrimmage. The scrimmage will take place on the last day of camp (June 25th). This scrimmage is for fun, not for competition. Parents will be welcome to watch the scrimmage.
Lastly, we will be having an award ceremony where coaches will be awarding players who stood out performance wise, and improved over the week.

What safety protocols will be in place?
There will be an on-staff trainer at camp that will be available to help players if they get injured or feel sick.
All players will be subject to temperature checks at the start of each day.
Hand sanitizer will be available at each field, and at the entrance to the cafeteria before and after lunch.
Counselors will be stationed at every field and will ensure that each player is following the proper COVID-19 protocol; this includes, but is not limited to, keeping personal belongings 6 feet apart, drinking out of their own water bottles, and using hand sanitizer.
Water will be provided, however we do encourage players to bring their own.
What will my child need to bring to camp?
Tennis shoes or rubber football cleats.
If your child is staying for the afternoon care, we encourage that you bring a change of clothes.
*Note: outside temperatures will be high during camp; we encourage that your child prepares for that by bringing what they feel they need to stay hydrated and cool.
I would like to volunteer, what can I do?
We are looking for volunteers to fulfill the roles of counselors. Counselors are crucial in helping the coaching staff by providing water to players, walking players to different fields/the cafeteria, and aiding players on and off the field.
