Regional Development Camps feature two days of competition, including individual drills, 1-on-1 training and 7-on-7 situations. This includes the opportunity to train with and learn from current NCAA coaches and former NFL players and coaches.
All athletes and families will attend a variety of off-the-field player development sessions during the event. Player development sessions will feature former NFL players and coaches addressing the crowd on a range of topics, including the importance of leadership and character development.
As the National Governing Body for the sport, USA Football was granted permission from the NCAA to permit current college coaches to serve as coaches for the National Team program. Athletes in attendance at Regional Development Camps will receive the opportunity to work first hand with current college coaches.
"Playing for Team USA is one of the greatest honors a football player can ever accept. I just thought, 'Is there anything more American than representing your country through football?' It'd be like a runner turning down a chance to go to the Olympics."

Regional Development Camp participants all share one common goal: to represent the United States in international football competition. The Regional Development Camps present the opportunity for all athletes to be considered to represent their country and wear Team USA across their chest.
Athletes at the Regional Development Camp will be competing on the field for a spot on their respective U.S. National Team.
