Camp Format

Generally, TBF camps have one weekly practice session for a period of 6, 8, or up to 12 weeks straight. Sessions last from 60-90 minutes and are filled with high tempo drills designed to isolate and improve skill development through repetition. I believe this type of weekly training model leads to more sustainable improvement in players as opposed to what they get at a 2-day, 3-day, or even week long camp. The weekly training model is much more similar to how top level athletes train in the offseason, often multiple times a week for an extended period.

TBF camps generally have less players per training session than most camps, allowing for increased repositions and more individualized coaching. Players get about an entire season’s worth of practice on position specific fundamentals and drills. My favorite part of coaching in this setting is that there are no games to win or playing time to manage. The focus is simply to improve every player, regardless of how good they are or are not.
