Champions Camp at New Rochelle High School has become the final big event before the start of every new season. Some of the area’s top teams meet for a week of workouts before a two-week break. Then it’s football, football, football all the way through to Thanksgiving weekend.
That will be the case this year as well. New Ro is set to host its annual camp beginning on Monday. It will run through Friday, with teams working from 4:30-8 every night. The list of teams includes: New Ro, Iona Prep, Harrison, Eastchester, Tuckahoe, and Woodlands.
There have been a few changes to the participants this year. Briarcliff and Roosevelt will not attend the camp. They have been replaced by Iona Prep and Woodlands. (Iona Prep participated last year, but only in a couple 7-on-7s.) Also, Ardsley may attend the camp as well, which has done in the past.
Full disclosure: I will not be at Champions Camp this year. I’m headed out on vacation on Friday and will be gone for two weeks. Hopefully, one of my colleagues will fill in and keep the blog running with updates. I will let everyone know in the coming days.
Also, if any other coach, player or parent has information for other August camps/workouts, please e-mail them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
