Chris Cooley's Football Camp

Redskin tight end Chris Cooley announces dates for his annual Old Spice Chris Cooley Football Camp. This year's two-day event will be held Saturday, June 4th and Sunday, June 5th at Fairfax High School from 9:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Chris’ wife, Christy, will host a cheerleading camp that runs in conjunction with Chris’ football camp.

Chris will be on site to direct the activities of the camp and provide instruction. The camp features a selection of the top prep and collegiate coaches in the Washington D.C. area. The camp is open to all boys and girls ages seven to 14.

Each day, the campers will experience various stations, specializing in fundamental skills and the team concept of football. Individual groups will be small to assure that each camper gets maximum personalized instruction.

In addition to seven hours of football instruction, all campers will receive an autographed camp team photo with Chris, a camp T-shirt, and the opportunity to win additional contests and prizes. Cost of the camp is $199. Redskins’ fans can enter this code in the Coupon Code Section to receive a $20 discount: COOLEY2011.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Chris Cooley Education Fund and Redskins Read via the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation.

Campers are encouraged to register early, as spots are limited.
