San Diego, California - The San Diego State football program will host its youth football camp on June 21 for participants ages 5-13, and will also hold a Cheer and Dance clinic for those the same ages on August 9.
The cost to participate in the football camp is $35 per person, and includes a T-shirt and a ticket to the Aztecs’ season opener against Northern Arizona on Aug. 30 at Qualcomm Stadium. The morning session for ages 5-11 will be from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m., while the afternoon session for ages 11 and 12 will be from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The participants will learn offensive and defensive fundamental skills, have an opportunity to interact with Aztec football coaches and will include an autograph session with Aztec players. Meanwhile, the Cheer and Dance clinic participants will learn fundamental skills of cheer and dance performance, in addition to an opportunity to interact with Aztec cheer and dance coaches. Those interested in either camp can register here.
San Diego State returns 12 starters and 40 letterwinners from a team that finished 8-5 overall and 6-2 in Mountain West play a year ago. In the process, the Aztecs appeared in a bowl game for a school-record fourth-consecutive season, as they defeated Buffalo, 49-24, in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl on December 21.
With its bowl game appearance, SDSU became one of only 29 teams in the nation, and one of just five non-BCS schools, to play in a bowl game in four-straight years.
