OTAs Camp Will Start on 10/31

Camp is open to participants from 1st to 8th grade (2021/2022 school year)! The Session will run on Sundays from 10/31 through 11/21.

Next Level OTA's are a step up from traditional Flag Football camp. In this session, players will be taught the distinct fundamentals of offensive and defensive techniques and their purposes. From stance, to footwork, to schemes... this program covers the details that it takes to take your game to the Next Level!

Coach Castillo, assisted by local high school and collegiate athletes, will execute the Next Level OTA's Session. Camp focus will be on core skill development (offensive and defensive principles), proper play execution, understanding situational roles, and more!

No previous flag football or Next Level program experience is required to attend the camp(s). See below for the full camp curriculum!

All camp attendees will receive a Next Level OTA's Nike Dri-Fit T-shirt along with other items which are included in the base cost of the program!
