The Largest Football Camp in the Pacific Northwest is all set for June 7th at Mercer Island High School. The former Jason Gesser Football camp which was also known as the Nike Northwest Elite Football Camp in it’s first year is now 100% confirmed as the camp to be at. That camp since year 1 has been known as the Northwest Elite Football Camp.
This camp should never be confused with NW Elite Index or their NW Stars Camp which is run by Barton Football Academy. NW Elite Index was created 3 years after the Northwest Elite Football Camp was. The name confusion is a constant issue unfortunately.
What sets this camp apart has been the # of high quality recruits and frankly the the number of coaches who have showed up. As of today there are 26 Colleges and Universities coming to the camp. Several Head Coaches will be in attendance and so will head positional coaches and decision makers. Parents and kids will see 4-6 fields filled with kids and on those fields with sleeves rolled up and coaching will be the Coaches. Just inches from these top kids these coaches get a rare look at the best of the Region and beyond.
PLEASE UNDERSTAND THIS. This is very rare. The chance to be seen by one college is tough enough. Two colleges even better. 5 is tough to get and anything over 10 is just incredibly rare. And for many who continue to ask why the answer lies in the NCAA who really ban coaches form being at these events expect within a 2 week window. For you or your athlete to be seen like this would normally take you many many trips out to college camps.
Something is happening this year for the camp that is a direct result of this rare opportunity. The camp is filling up with out of region kids. Once reserved to Oregon and Washington kids the camp this year is gaining a large contingent from outside the region.
With 400 kids signed up and 3 weeks to go the camp will overflow again. But last years # of 725 kids is not going to happen. Look for the Camp to fill up at 550 kids and that will be it. So your days are numbered . You top Seniors to be there will be no special deals about coming in late according to the management. Sign up or be left out.
