2018 Copenhagen Skills Camp Recap



The Growth of a Game hosted its second annual American football development camp in Copenhagen, Denmark from March 16th-17th, 2018 with tremendous success. The Growth of a Game welcomed players from previous camps and newcomers from different countries all over Europe.

The skills camp took place on Saturday and Sunday at Valby Idrætspark, mixing on-field training sessions and off-the-field study sessions. Participants learned a lot over the course of the weekend, refined their knowledge and understanding of their respective positions, and connected with other players and coaches from around the Nordic region. The cold, Danish spring weather was not enough to stop these players as they put in three practices worth of hard work and they came away with a plethora of knowledge and new skills.
