The first European League of Football “Junior Player Development Camp” is over and it was a huge success. Over 100 children were participating in the three-day camp from 26th to 28th July in Hamburg. In cooperation with the American Football and Cheerleading Association of Hamburg and all the football-clubs included in that association, coaches came together to develop the youth.
Youngsters totally new to football as well as children already playing for the clubs were enjoying the good conditions on the Pioneers football field in the City Park of Hamburg. Learning the basics, the youth was coached equally by club representatives and Hamburg Sea Devils players and coaches providing knowledge to all the girls and boys at the camp.
This event was made possible by several sponsors the league wants to thank: DAK Gesundheit, Ostmost, Flyeralarm, Orthopädikum Neuer Wall, novel media, EDEKA Niemerszein and Statics. Further appreciation goes to the clubs for cooperating: Hamburg Pioneers, Hamburg Ravens, Hamburg Blue Devils, Hamburg Swans, Hamburg United and Hamburg Huskies.
On three different days, there was action from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. every day includingfree catering for all the kids participating. It started with warm-ups beforethe individual groups circulated from station to station, getting to know all thedifferent aspects to the game we love. The boys and girls learned techniques ofcatching, throwing, running, kicking, and most importantly, how to work as ateam. Whether tall or short, big or small, and regardless of skin color andheritage, football unites. At this camp, everyone supported each other which createda great community. More camps are planned for the coming years in differentcities to continue the youth work and to cooperate with the clubs.
