CAMPS

COMBINE/MINI CAMPS

We have several different ways to evaluate an athlete’s athletic performance. Our training will combine all of the skills that athletes possess before we will evaluate any player. We feel that a 40 yard dash does not tell the entire story of an athlete speed, one bench press for reps segment does not tell us how strong an athlete truly is. So that is why we put our athletes through our Combine which is a group of timed and measured skills and drills. Which will test them on speed, proper technique, strength and preparation? The Mini Camp section of our Camps will test the athletes ability on the football field. The athletes will perform Football skills and drills perform in Helmets and Shoulder Pads with Upper Body Contact. Each athlete at every football position will go through at least 8 different football position drills. This will test their knowledge of the game, as well as how mentally and physically tough each athlete is.

CAMP FORMATS EXPLAINED

West Coast Tournament & Athletes Network present:
National 7 on 7 Elite Passing League Team Football Tournaments

These camps provide instruction for all offensive and defensive positions. The WCT/ANT football staff will teach the basic fundamentals and emphasize individual techniques in order to develop better overall players and those that want to fit within the team concept.
Each camper will select an offensive and/or defensive position and may split times of instruction for a well-rounded experience. Campers will learn the basic fundamentals that will give them the opportunity for success in their budding football careers.

WCT/ANT highly experienced coaching staff will offer a hands-on approach in dealing with the younger campers, helping them to appreciate the game of football to its fullest.
At the camp, every individual will receive as much special attention as required to enhance the experience of the youngest players. Finding a position those best suits his abilities without the distraction of older players and pointing each camper in the right direction are goals of the camp.

This camp is for all serious players, regardless of position. This is a non-contact camp, but each participant will be required to wear a helmet and shoulder pads to allow maximum teaching of proper technique.
The offensive lineman will work in the areas of pass blocking; run blocking and recognizing defensive fronts and promoting communication among the men in the trenches.
Defensively, emphasis will be in the areas of defeating or avoiding the different run blocks, perfecting skills for rushing the passer with football and hand-to-hand techniques as well as many other fundamentals.

The Skills Camp for offensive and defensive players is an outstanding way to prepare players for the mental focus needed for the season as the total football atmosphere will be re-created.

Players can not only work on individual techniques, but then meld those skills into the framework of offensive and defensive systems.

The four day, four hour a day practice sessions will provide the athletes, veteran and rookie alike, with an exposure to the competitive atmosphere they will encounter in the fall.

7 ON 7 Football Challenge FAQ

Q: What makes WCT/ANT 7 on 7 different?

A: First of all we promote safety first; all of our players will wear Game Breaker Soft Helmets. We feel anytime you play this game contact or non-contact you must protect yourself from a possibly head injury.

Secondly we will play a fast break, press coverage, passing and great coverage challenge.

Q: What is your 5th Quarter?

A: Our version of the 5th quarter is a Situational Football Challenge. Each team will have one series against a defense to gain as many yards and touchdowns that they can. In the following Football Situations:

1. 2 Minute Drill starting from the 40 yardline.

2. Redzone starting from the 30 yardline.

3. Goal line starting from the 10 yardline.

4. Overtime starting from the 25 yardline.

Q: What exactly is 7-on-7 Football?

A: 7-on-7 football is a program that many high schools and middle schools run during the off-season. 7-on-7 is played without pads and receivers are downed by one-hand touch (there are no flags involved). 7-on-7 is also a passing only game – there are no offensive rushing plays and defenders cannot rush the quarterback.

Q: What positions are the players on the field?

A: On offense, QB snaps to himself under center, from shotgun or pistol formations. There is 1 quarterback, and a combination of running backs, tight ends, and wide receivers equaling 5 players – basically, all of the players on a regulation offense except for the offensive guards and tackles. Accordingly all offensive players must properly align themselves according to regulation football rules (2 eligible receivers must be on the line of scrimmage while all other receivers must be at least one yard off of the line of scrimmage). On defense, you may have 7 players in any combination of linebackers, safeties, and cornerbacks.

Q: If there is a running back that means I can call a running play right?

A: No. Running plays are not allowed. However, just as in regulation football, the running back is eligible to go out for a pass.

Q: If I can’t rush the quarterback, how do you keep the quarterback from holding the ball forever?

A: Defenders cannot rush the quarterback; however the quarterback must throw the ball within 4 seconds of the snap of each play. An official will use a stopwatch to time each play, from the snap to the release of the football. The official will allow the play to complete, regardless of whether the quarterback exceeded the 4 seconds allowed to throw the ball. However, upon completion of the play, if the official’s stopwatch exceeds 4 seconds, then the play will be ruled an incompletion, regardless of what happened on the play.

Q: Do we have to get jerseys made?

A: No, but your team must have both matching colored shirts and matching white shirts – the visiting team will wear white shirts and the home team will wear colored shirts in each game.

Q: Do I have to wear a mouth guard?

A: We require each player to wear a mouth guard. Although 7-on-7 is a non-contact sport, occasionally collisions do occur. Mouth guards both protect your teeth and, more significantly, help to prevent concussions.
