Every year, the Pro Football Mini Camp hosts a coach’s clinic that includes a guest speaker and guest instructors. The clinic is designed to bring holistic developmental opportunities to the area’s coaches to assist in improving youth sports through positive and effective coaching techniques, safety awareness and collegiality. We want to challenge area coaches to explore new tools and sharpen existing ones.

2017 Speaker

The 2017 speaker is Frank Beamer, former head coach at Virginia Tech. When Beamer accepted the job as head football coach at his alma mater in 1987, his goal was for the Virginia Tech football program to reach a consistent level of excellence. The Hokies thrived under his tutelage and Beamer became one of the most respected and successful coaches on the college football scene. Read More.
