Both camps will be held at Bemis Field on the Notre Dame Prep campus.

“We will teach the fundamentals and techniques required to be great,” said NDP Head Football Coach Mark Nolan. “The biggest benefit would be skill development.”

The Skills Positions Camp, where players are separated by position and receive instruction specific to that position will be held Tuesdays, Jan. 12, 19 and 26, from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m.

The Offensive Line/Defensive Line Camp will be held Wednesdays, Jan. 13, 20 and 27, from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Campers will be taught the skills it takes to be an offensive or defensive lineman at the high school level. Campers may come to one or all three nights of either camp.

To register, go to ndpsaints.org/athleticsignups.

Sessions are $20 each. Space is limited to ensure excellent coach to player ratios.

Mr. Nolan added, “We will cap these camps so they stay individualized.” Players will not wear pads but athletic clothing and cleats or tennis shoes are a must.
