Gatorade Junior Training Camp
For the 22nd consecutive year, the Seattle Seahawks will host FREE Gatorade Junior Training Camps during Summer 2017. A total of six Gatorade Junior Training Camps will be open to kids ages 7-14 and focus on football skills and drills. Host cities include Ferndale, Issaquah, Renton, Seattle, Sumner and Vancouver. The two-hour clinic combines basic football fundamentals that focus on self-improvement and a motivational life-skills session with a Seahawks player, coach or alumni.
Each Gatorade Junior Training Camp has a limited number of participants and you must be registered the participate. Unlike previous years, we will not allow any unregistered walk-ups to attend the camp. Please note we will not be hosting the Sea Gals mini-cheerleading camp this year.
