Inaugural Big Island Ikei Performance Football Camp Hawaii - July 7-9, 2009

3-day intensive football training with NFL Players

Kea’au High School (Hawaii) will be the host site for the Inaugural Big Island Ikei Performance Football Camp scheduled July 7-9, 2009. Athletes from grades 8-11th will have an opportunity of a lifetime to learn from one of the nation’s leading experts in sports performance training as former Hawaii and National Weightlifting Champion and World Record Holder Chad Ikei and his team of NFL Players, lead campers through the 3-day intensive football training program.

Kea’au High School Athletic Director, Iris McGuire, is excited to bring the Ikei Performance Football Camp to the Big Island. “We are proud to have this caliber of professionals come to the Big Island to teach our young athletes. Chad has trained many athletes from Hawaii that have moved on to play in the NFL, and now our kids will have the opportunity to learn these skills that will benefit their future both on and off the field.” Athletes will learn how to master the football combine drills, college recruiting process, position specific techniques, proper weightlifting movements, speed & agility development, healthy nutrition, and safe supplementation.

“It’s such an honor to return home to the islands and share my experiences with Hawaii’s young athletes,” states Coach Ikei. “There is so much talent here in Hawaii but many times athletes are overlooked or go unnoticed. Our goal is to educate both parents and athletes on how to maximize their exposure as well as their performance so that they increase their chances of playing at the next level.” Coach Ikei and his team of NFL Players have volunteered their time to help teach Hawaii’s athletes how to become a champion. “This is my way of giving back to the islands that has provided me with such great opportunities.”

Kaimuki DB, Trendt “Tonka” Marsom, learned from Coach Ikei during his earlier years of football when he participated at one of the Oahu clinics. “The camp I attended with Coach Ikei taught me a lot and I was able to utilize many of the drills immediately which helped elevate my game.” Tonka will be heading to play for the University of Wyoming but before this upcoming season begins, he is planning to make a stop in Arizona to spend a few weeks training under the direction of Coach Ikei.

The Inaugural Big Island Ikei Performance Football Camp is an overnight camp with events scheduled from 9am-8pm on July 7 & 8 and 9am-4pm on July 9. The cost of the camp is $200 for all three days, which include all meals (2 breakfast, 3 lunch, 2 dinner and snacks) and lodging for 2 nights. The camp is limited to 100 participants to ensure proper coach to athlete ratio and is based on a first come first serve basis. The camp is open to all Hawaii and Mainland athletes.
