Why the Confluence Football Clinic? If you are serious about football, this is the clinic for you!
Location: There is a void in the Connecticut River Valley for this type of football clinic. Located just a few miles north of Hartford, this clinic will serve as a venue for many athletes, especially local ones, to get the opportunities they seek.
Cost: Although we charge less than many more expensive football clinics, we are able to provide the same caliber of football experience. All coaches are provided with a roster of players along with contact information.
Payment Using PayPal: Simply submit your payment through PayPal and within 24 hours you will receive an electronic copy of the camp registration materials via email.
Technique: College coaches will teach the latest strategies, techniques, and drills. Players will be able to do many of these drills without pads over the summer to help them improve their games! Techniques will be broken down to the most fundamental components, so there is plenty of room for both novice and veteran athletes to work and learn the game of football. We will wear helmets and shoulder pads and when there is any drill involving contact the athletes will be divided to appropriate skill groups.
Recruiting: Most of the complaints about attending clinics relate to lack of expected exposure. Not at this clinic! Coaches from multiple colleges and universities will be represented at the clinic. If you are a serious student – athlete, the Confluence Football Clinic is a must– Division I, Division II and III colleges and universities have pledged to attend! Check our list of schools to keep up to date. There will be different colleges represented on different days. Not all schools will attend all three days of the clinic. Unlike most clinics, the format is structured so you can get noticed and meet the coaches! College Coaches will instruct for only half of each practice then trade to another college coach. When they are not coaching, they will be free to move about the clinic and observe you in position specific drills. After practice is complete, there will be time on the turf to move about and meet the coaches!

I highly recommend the Confluence Football Camp for players that are looking to showcase their talents with college coaches and get one-on-one coaching. The camp attracts coaches from over 30 top rated colleges/universities who teach basic and advanced techniques for each position. My son attended 10 camps over the last two years and found that Confluence was the best camp to develop relationships with coaches- a critical step in college recruiting. We’re thrilled that he committed to play at WPI this fall and pursue a degree in aerospace engineering/physics. Lisa Bonner
My son, Matt Sullivan, and I spent two full months last summer visiting two types of football camps:
1. Individual camps held by D1/D3 schools.
2. “other camps” … usually hosted by a prep school or outside entity and usually lasting more than one day … these camps were ATTENDED BY MULTIPLE D1/D2/D3 coaches.
I believe the second type offers the biggest opportunity for athletes to get some exposure at the next level. You do not have to be a rising senior to attend … all ages are welcome.
The camp listed below is the best that Matt and I experienced … It is hosted by a Prep School Coach (Chuck Reid) who was a tremendous help to Matt in finding the right fit in terms of level of play in college. It is co-hosted by a D3 coach of a wonderful college near Boston.
