Football, Strength & Speed Camp

The Football, Strength & Speed Camp at Fork Union Military Academy, one of the nation's leading college preparatory boarding schools for boys in grades 7 through postgraduate, is a three-day weekend focused on strictly football, strength and speed! This camp is an overnight camp with day-camper packages.

Fork Union is located in the rolling hills of central Virginia's piedmont region, an easy drive from Washington D.C., Charlottesville and Richmond. Our goal is to provide fun, sports and active weekend for fathers and sons as they experience our 120-year old Academy that instills the values of respect, integrity, faith, character and discipline in their students and has produced doctors, lawyers, teachers, military leaders, business leaders, Heisman Trophy winners, Olympians, and Super Bowl and NCAA Champions. 

We will teach the fundamentals of the game of football under the direction of our postgraduate and prep football staff, featuring John Shuman the 32-year head coach of the Fork Union postgraduate program. Jeff Appel, Fork Union's Director of Sport Performance, will teach the basic fundamentals of strength, conditioning and speed training.
