Coach McElwain Football Camps return in 2013

April 30, 2013

FORT COLLINS, Colo.--The popular Coach McElwain Football Camps will take place once again this summer, and expand with six satellite football camps across the state of Colorado. For the first time, residents of Colorado Springs, Denver, Durango, Grand Junction, Pueblo and Yuma will enjoy the chance to take part in Coach McElwain's camps in their own cities the week of June 10-14.

Taught by Colorado State head football coach Jim McElwain and members of his outstanding coaching staff, these camps provide all-around instruction to improve skills, introduce safe and effective techniques and include all campers in all drills.

The Satellite Camps, for kids in grades 3-12, will be held June 10 (Yuma), June 11 (Denver and Colorado Springs), June 12 (Pueblo), June 13 (Durango) and June 14 (Grand Junction). These two-hour non-padded camps cost just $30 per participant and feature instruction by members of the Rams' coaching staff.

Satellite Camps are designed for players of all positions to improve their skills and receive an introduction to CSU and the football staff. It is yet another example of the way Coach McElwain has worked hard to expand upon CSU President Tony Frank's initiative to increase exposure to Colorado State University statewide, and to broaden the recruitment of students and student-athletes to Colorado State.

This year's Youth Camp on the Colorado State campus in Fort Collins is for kids in grades 3-8, and will be held June 17-18. Registration costs $170 for commuter campers and $210 for overnight participants. The non-padded, individual camp will focus on basic individual skills and feature instruction from the CSU football staff as well as guest coaches from the country.

High school football players can take part in the 2013 All-Position Skills Camp at Colorado State July 25-26. This camp is designed for players to wear a helmet and shoulder pads and receive instruction from the CSU coaching staff in individual, group and team situations. Cost of the camp is $200.

The 2013 Coach McElwain Football Camps further enhance the emphasis of the Rams' head coach to showcase Colorado State University and its spectacular Fort Collins campus, while giving future Rams a chance to display their skills to the coaching staff.

Registration for all camps is open now. Participants may register online here or contact Camp Director Tom Ehlers (; 970-491-6131) with any questions. Registered campers must complete the medical waiver found online.
