The dates have been announced for the Monmouth-Roseville Jr. High Football Camp. The camp will take place at Monnmouth-Roseville Jr. High in Roseville from Monday, July 25th-Friday, July 29th from 9-11 am. It’s open to all area incoming 7th and 8th graders. The camp costs $30 per athlete and all campers must have an up-to-date physical. A copy of the physical MUST be turned in along with a parent-signed permission slip. You can download all necessary forms from the MRJHS website. Campers will be issued and use a helmet, shoulder pads and mouth-guard during camp. Monmouth-Roseville junior high football coaches as well as Monmouth-Roseville varsity head coach Jeremy Adolphson and current Titan high school players will provide the coaching and instruction throughout the week.
Eighth grade football coach, Todd Wetterling says football at the youth level is still trying to bring participation numbers back to pre-covid pandemic levels.
The camp will teach fundamental skills such as passing, kicking, receiving, blocking, route running, and tackling. Limited player to player contact is planned during camp drills, but full contact between players is discouraged. Each camper is required to bring their own shorts, t-shirt and football cleats. There will be cleats to borrow, but sizes are not guaranteed. Water will be provided and campers will receive a camp t-shirt with payment. For more information, call Coach Wetterling at (309) 221-8108.
