The Johnson C. Smith football program will host the Lil’ Bulls Youth Football Camp this summer on July 8-10 at the Irwin Belk Complex.

The goal is to teach boys and girls the fundamentals of football and promote self-confidence through team play.

Each participant will have a chance learn every position on the football field. Every camper will learn the fundamentals of each offensive and defensive position, from quarterback to defensive line. There also will be areas of special teams taught as well.

“This camp is exciting for my coaching staff, and I because it involves the community and allows us the opportunity to meet local kids and supporters firsthand,” said JCSU head football coach Steven Aycock. “We’re focused on bring back the winning ways and tradition of JCSU Football, and we are striving to have the community on board as we take off.”

The camp is targeting kids in grades 1-8 (5-15 years old).

The camp welcomes children who’ve never played football. Organizers say participants will get to see how they match up against others their age and whether football is a good fit before making a commitment to play on a team.

This camp is non-contact, so the only equipment a camper must bring is proper footwear, cleats recommended, and comfortable clothing.

Applications can be found on the JCSU Web site: Look on the right sidebar of the Football page or under the CAMPS section. For more information, contact Joey Sulkowski at 704-378-1027 or via email at
