become a student of the game? 

Why do you need to become a student of the game? Because it fosters excellence! This one of a kind camp shows you how the best get better . . . and how you can too.

Becoming a student of the game fosters:

  • Confidence: Develop confidence by acquiring the skills and disposition to handle any game situation. The CSP coaching staff will teach you how to anticipate, read the field, and adapt your game plan.
  • Learning: Learn how to learn. Develop a deeper understanding of the game and accelerate your ability to think while you play. The tools acquired at camp will help you quickly apply what is taught by any coach.
  • Persistence: Become relentless in your desire to improve. A little effort leads to small rewards, and a committed effort over an extended period leads to greater rewards.
  • Resilience: When football players learn to engage in rigorous training and strategy, they learn how to shift their perspective, changing stressors into challenges, and solving problems on their own. Football is an emotional game and CSP teaches players how to thrive in that emotional environment.
  • Flexibility: Learning is messy and unpredictable, and true football understanding is something to be pursued through multiple pathways that are complex, layered, and ambiguous. CSP coaches and speakers have the unique experience and ability to breakdown and clearly communicate the complexities of football to campers in a way that they can understand and apply.
  • Purposefulness: Develop the ability to play at a high speed on the field without thought. Campers will learn that what they are learning has meaning and gain a broader perspective of how the game works. They will learn how to trust themselves and understand that the ability to develop instincts is directly tied to one’s ability by learning the game as much as they know themselves.
  • Metacognition: Campers will be taught how to think about and set goals, select appropriate strategies to pursue those goals, and reflect on the effectiveness of their chosen approach.
  • Ownership: Campers will leave the camp owning what they have learned. They will have developed a desire for knowledge, and they importance of learning in the game of football, and more importantly in life. Camper will be able to bring their knowledge back and lead their high school teams to a higher level of performance.

Live and train like a pro, by the pros! 

Experience life as an NFL player June 24-29, 2018 at our premier 6 day/5 night training camp hosted in a luxurious Pebble Beach setting! 

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to train like a pro football player? Now's your chance for one week this summer. Maximize your performance, raise your knowledge, hone your skills, and learn from the best. Chris’s team of coaches have the experience and knowledge you need to take your performance to the next level. 

A unique opportunity for athletes to train and learn from former NFL players, coaches, and sport experts. Coach to athlete ratio 1:4, NFL Pro to athlete ratio 1:6.

The camp will be run similar to a NFL training camp, helmet only, low impact, & non-tackling. The focus will be on improving players understanding of the game and position specifics (situational football). You will be taught in great detail, how to play and understand the intricacies of football. There will be special guest speakers in the evenings, including NFL legends.

The camp will begin with an evaluation of each athlete, using a process similar to testing at NFL training camps.  We will assess mental and physical strength, agility and fitness, and we'll complete your NFL-style evaluation report with suggested areas for improvement.

Each day throughout the week we will be conducting highly detailed position specific conditioning and practice sessions on and off the field. Our focus is to teach the game of football correctly so that participants can perform safely at a high level. This camp is designed to teach proper techniques, increase situational awareness, and challenge participants both mentally and physically. Athletes will learn proper techniques and become a 'student of the game' in a fun and challenging environment.
