Trinity holds youth football camp on Thursday, Friday

Participants in Trinity's "Mom's Camp" work out under the watchful eye of Wildcat assistant football coaches in the 2020 camp.

Trinity football coach Granger Shook and his staff will hold a youth summer camp on Thursday and Friday from 8-11:30 a.m. for elementary school-age participants (ages 5-12) at the school.

“Ever since I can remember, Trinity has had the most participation in youth football,” Shook said. “It’s getting so popular recently that we may have to split up our teams into two separate teams for one age group.

“Feeding off that excitement and inviting our elementary students to learn from our varsity football players and staff, I just think, is a no-brainer to foster that excitement in our hallways and our summer programs. I’m inviting my youth league coaches to come up and do a little chalk-talk session with my varsity staff.”

Cost of the camp is $100 and includes a T-shirt and snack. While the camp is conducted on campus by the Trinity coaching staff and is aimed primarily at Trinity players, Shook said he would not turn away any interested participants. The two-day camp will include a Fellowship of Christian Athletes’ representative as well.

For more information, contact Shook at 334-213-2155 or visit the school’s Web site at https://www.trinitywildcats.com/summercamps.

The summer youth camp is one of three events held by the school this month. In addition, Trinity will hold it’s annual “Mom’s Camp” on Monday (June 7) from 8-11:30 a.m. at the school for parents of Trinity football players.

“We’re fostering relationships with the moms through this camp,” Shook said, “and just letting them know the type of men that are surrounding their boys and giving them a glimpse of what their boys do on a daily basis for us.”

To participate in the Mom’s Camp, call Shook.

On June 30, Trinity will hold a golf tournament for the school’s athletic program at RTJ Capital Hill in Prattville. For more information on the golf tournament, call athletic director Jessica Lassiter at 334-213-2155.
