Tiger Youth Football Camp June 24-26
Registration is now open for the Douglas Tiger Youth Football Camp being held on June 24-26 for students in third through eight grade.
Instruction during the non contact camp at Douglas High School will focus on building basic fundamental skills. Douglas Head Coach Ernie Monfiletto said the objective is to help young players who will be playing in the local Pop Warner and flag football league programs this fall — players who, in time, may continue to play in high school.
“We want to establish a connection with those kids in the community,” Monfiletto said. “We want to encourage those little Tigers to grow up to be big Tigers.”
Contact email@example.com or call the high school at 782-5136 for information.
