      TEAM CAMPS

Bob Nielson the USD coaching staff and Coyote players will give personal instruction on techniques and fundamentals of the game. Each team and their coach will be allotted practice time to work on offensive and defensive schemes.

The first practice of every day will be devoted to individual drills taught by the USD staff and players. The second and third practice will be used to work as a team and scrimmage with other teams attending the camp. With live team scrimmages coaches and players are able to develop the team chemistry over a three day period. While the scrimmages are controlled they create a game like atmosphere that will prepare teams for Friday nights.

**Individuals not on a team are encouraged to attend and we will put
an extra team together for you. USD will not provide equipment.**
