Johnson Controls Pro football Hall of Fame village is becoming America's football field of dreams. Last year, three brand new football fields hosted the 25,000 young adults in football camps. Each one of these participants came to the Pro football Hall of Fame and were inspired by a one-hour session on the values of the game and viewing the immersive hologram theatre show "A Game for Life”. In six weeks, there will be two more fields for a total of five and already 50,000 campers have signed up for football camps including this international group.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame Academy has announced their upcoming camp schedule for the month of July. The Academy is searching for the brightest and best in European talent aged 16-20. Through Director of International Player development (and Bristol Academy PRIDE Head Coach) Benjamin Herod, the search has begun for those in Europe with a talent, and work ethic to match, that want to be coached by NFL level coaches at the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s first ever International camp.
The selection process has already begun with more than 20 players already receiving invitations from Great Britain, France, Belgium and beyond. The camp cost is $499 and is sold as a non-residential camp, meaning those taking part need to make their own way there and pay for accommodation.
The four-day camp starts on July 25, 2017. At the end of the camp those players that from Europe receiving elite invitations will also get an opportunity to take part in a show case game against those from Canada that attended the same camp. The game is being played at the Tom Benson Pro Football Hall of Fame Stadium and give those taking part an opportunity to be put in front of NCAA recruiters.
Players are being selected after submitting their game film on the signup form which can be found by joining the following the Pro Football Hall of Fame Academy Facebook group.
There is also a non-elite camp invite available for those that don’t quite make the cut. This does not include a showcase game at the end but does include all the same level of coaching etc. at the same price. All details of both camps can be found within the Facebook group above and for those looking to find out a little more about the Pro Football Hall of Fame Academy they can visit the website.
Places are filling up fast so act quickly if you are interested. This is just the start of the exciting news to follow from the Pro Football Hall of Fame Academy as look to set up franchises across Europe.
