WCFL Camp To Feature Legendary NFL Players Jason Taylor and Sam Madison

The upcoming camp session will be a great experience for young players.

The Western Communities Football League (WCFL), training ground for numerous major college and NFL players, will host its WCFL Tackle Football Showcase from July 17 through July 19 at the WCFL football fields at Wellington’s Village Park on Pierson Road.

Camp director coach Reggie Harris, assistant head coach at St. Thomas Aquinas High School, has more than 20 years’ experience coaching football and is a seven-time high school football state champion between California and Florida.

“Coaching the camp is an all-star cast of former NFL players, prominent high school coaches and elite trainers, including NFL Hall of Famer Jason Taylor and 12-year NFL veteran and Super Bowl champion Sam Madison, along with several other NFL player alumni,” Harris said. “The incredible list of coaches and the caliber of coaching participants will receive makes this camp unmatched by any other youth football camp. This camp has a big wow factor.”

The three-day camp will include coaching sessions using the USA Football Heads Up football technique, NFL combine-like testing of each participant, encouraging competition and challenging each player — plus many fun activities.

“We have elite South Miami NFL Combine and youth trainer Tony Sands, who will be conducting NFL testing and ranking of the participants,” Harris said. “And we will have 9-on-9 competitions the last day of the camp. This, along with some agility and speed training and specific position training, make this camp one parents don’t want their kids to miss.”

WCFL President John Navarro is excited about the upcoming camp.

“Our board wanted to take our summer football camp to another level and make it really fun and exciting for the kids,” he said. “We hoped to add some great coaches, yet we never thought we could get the group of coaches we have now for the camp. Attending a camp like this for youth is a great opportunity to get some great coaching from some of the best coaches and former players in football. This camp will be an experience of a lifetime for these kids.”

Each player will be fitted with a properly fitting helmet and shoulder pads for the camp. The participants should wear shorts and cleats and bring extra water. The camp is open to anyone between the ages of 5 and 15 wanting to attend until the camp registration is full.

“This camp is so spectacular that we might have to close registration if it gets too full, as every youth football player in our area will want to attend this camp,” Navarro said.

The WCFL is a certified USA Football Heads Up league. USA Football is the national governing body for amateur American football in the United States. USA Football has worked with leaders in both medicine and sport across the country to create a full-featured program that any league or school can use to address key safety issues, as well as ensure that every coach understands and knows how to implement each component of the program.

The WCFL is also a partner with the Orange Bowl Youth Football Alliance, which provides the USA Football Heads Up coaching training to the WCFL coaches, along with several other youth leagues in South Florida.
