At Atlanta Falcons Summer Camps, we share one ultimate goal which is that every drill, pass, touchdown, and eye-popping young fan experience is designed to unlock your child's love of the game. From young beginners to league participants, and every player in between, our curriculum utilizes small group instruction and fast-paced competition to teach and reinforce flag football-specific skills.
Over the course of the week, our curriculum aims to build new skills, reinforce fundamentals, create healthy competition and teach character and leadership on and off the field. We believe that summer is a unique time to expand your young player's comfort zone. We're dedicated to achieving this through the power of play and a connection to the team and sport our players love. Our activities target six critical developmental areas - emotional mastery, optimism, resiliency, self-efficacy, goal setting and determination - all aimed at inspiring each player's personal best and love of the game.
Young athletes perform best when they feel confident and comfortable. For that reason, we divide our camp into age appropriate levels. Each level teaches a unique set of skills and encourages its own level of competition.
Our youngest players work on the fundamentals of the game while using competitions and fun-filled activities to keep them engaged and excited. Our staff is constantly working to create new and exciting activities that speak to a young player's spark while meeting them where they are in their physical and emotional development.
As our players get older, they are likely involved in several different sports and activities. We know that any one of these hobbies could one day become their center of interest. Our coaches strive to use the challenges of the game of football and the value of teamwork to teach lifelong lessons that will translate to anything your child decides to pursue in life.
For players maturing alongside the game of football, our curriculum shifts to focus on the intricacies of receiving, running routes, and building an adaptive defensive strategy within their game. To match the evolving love of the game with increased football experience, we look to put our camp curriculum into action by capping off each afternoon with two (2) flag-football live scrimmages. Off the snap, we focus our attention towards teaching both offensive and defensive position-specific fundamentals, as well as to capitalizing on the competitive energy of the game to develop character building skills that transcend the playing field.
