May 30, 2014

Lisle, Illinois ~ Newcomers and seasoned players who want to learn individual and team techniques should attend the Roberto Garza and Jon Bostic Football Camp at Benedictine University on June 29-July 2.

The football camp, offering both overnight and day camp options, is designed for players ages 7 to 18 and will feature daily instruction, lectures and demonstrations by Garza, Bostic and other members of the Chicago Bears.

The college and high school coaches on staff at the camp will ensure each practice will be filled with in-depth instruction, lectures and demonstrations. Campers will be grouped by age, position, ability and experience to allow coaches to progressively teach basic and advanced techniques to best benefit each group.  

"Each athlete learns the fundamentals of football at this camp, which is very important," Garza said.  

Camp participants will also learn teamwork, self-discipline, selecting the correct role models, and how to attain their sports and life potential. Even though this is not an "autograph camp," members of the Bears will be available for autographs.

For more information, and to request a camp brochure which includes an application, call (301) 575-9400 or Space in the football camp is limited and registrations will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.

The camp is organized by Sports International, which has provided youth football players across the United States with the opportunity to learn from the professionals with the finest football camps for 30 years.
