Advanced Football Camp |Skills Camp : 

These are the most skilled positions in football! They demand a great deal of discipline and correct repetition to perfect the skill and techniques necessary to perform at these positions. This camp will aid each participant in developing the ability to perform at the peak of their potential when they return home. Our training techniques guide participants through a skill-learning process where every teaching experience has a purpose. This allows our staff to identify each participant's personal needs and develop their skills. The Gainesville Middle School staff will teach you the skills and techniques needed to be successful during this concentrated training clinic.

Tackle Combine: 

The Combine will begin on August 6th at the following locations.

Anklebiter - GSC Field 1

80lb - GSC Field 2

90, 100, & 115lbs - Gainesville Middle School

 ** We are currently waitlisting the 130lb division to see if we have enough participation for a team.  We would like to encourage players who are thinking about playing Middle School to play for the Grizzlies as well.  In most cases, only 8th-grade players see considerable time at Middle School.  With that, there is great value in the players playing both.  Our coaches understand the situation and will work with players and their MS schedule as well as installing a practice plan to fit.  The Middle School coaches in the area actually encourage the players to play both.
