The Pro Football Mini Camp, started in 2009, will not only provide you with the opportunity to receive football instruction in a friendly, exciting environment from some of the region’s best coaches, it will allow you to see how you stack up against other competitors. The camp will also encourage values that will lead to your success off the field – values such as teamwork, dedication, perseverance, integrity and leadership through service.

This year's Coach's Clinic will be held March 18th at Wayne High School.
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.
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.
The 2017 clinic will be co-hosted by members of the Indiana University football staff.
One of the highlights of the 2016 camp was a servant leadership project focusing on presentations and information about the judicial and law enforcement systems. Allen Superior Court Judge Wendy Davis and representatives of the Allen County Sheriff’s Department, Fort Wayne Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted a variety of activities for camp participants.Donate Now
