HAYS,Kan. -- Head Coach Chris Brown and Fort Hays State University football coaches will direct four 2012 football camps -- two high school camps, a youth camp for K-8 players and an individual camp.

Emphasis will be placed on techniques and fundamentals of the sport. Participants will have the opportunity for individual instruction, teamwork and competition. The goal, said Zach Watkins, FHSU linebackers coach, is for participants to leave the camp better football players than when they arrived.

"Weare building a football program that our fans and supporters can be extremely proud of," said Watkins.

The youth camp, for kindergarten students to eighth grade, begins at 6 p.m. May 22.The cost is $25 per camper for those who pre-register and $30 per camper for walk-ins.

The first team camp, an 11-man camp, will begin at 10 a.m. June 3 and end at 3 p.m. June 5. A $50 non-refundable deposit is required with the application. For overnight campers, the cost is $145, but if they need to rent a helmet or shoulder pads, the cost is $170. For commuter participants, the cost is $100, but if they need to rent a helmet or shoulder pads, the cost is $125. The mealplan for commuters is $7 per meal.

An eight-man team camp will start at 10 a.m. June 10 and end at 3 p.m. on June 12. Costs are the same as the 11-man camp.

The individual camp, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 16, features a two-hour instruction session on offense and defense. It is $40 per camper for participants who pre-register or $50 for walk-ins.
