Gatorade Junior Training Camp

For the 19th consecutive year the Seattle Seahawks will host Gatorade Junior Training Camps. The Seahawks will host nine Gatorade Junior Training Camps.  The camps are a FREE two hour clinic that combines basic football fundamentals that focus on self-improvement and a motivational life-skills session with a Seahawks player, coach or alumni.  The Gatorade Junior Training camps are free to kids ages 7-14.

Each Gatorade Junior Training Camp is limited to 230 participants. The Sea Gals will also be on hand for a mini-cheerleading camp for those who wish to participate. Registration for the Sea Gals mini-cheerleading camp is not required.  Host cities include Renton, Joint Base Lewis/McChord, Snohomish, Bellingham, Yakima, West Vancouver BC, Kennewick, Vancouver and Silverdale.

Seahawks Kids Club members receive registration priority and are guaranteed a spot, even if the camp is full to any of the Gatorade Junior Training Camps. To join our Kids Club please click HERE.

If the Gatorade Junior Training Camps are full and you’re a Kids Club member, simply show up to camp on the designated day with your Kids Club I.D. and our staff will register you in person.

Every effort is made to ensure that injuries do not occur.  Program participants are required to follow the coaches’ procedures for conditioning, warm up, stretching, and cool downs, and to exercise caution when using any athletic equipment. When an injury occurs, parents and program participants are expected to remain calm and let the trainer(s) or camp coaching staff administers aid.  Camp participants, other than the injured athlete, must remain clear of the injury.  The parents/guardians of the injured student will be contacted immediately and will be expected to return the 12 Tour or Seahawks Gatorade Junior Training Camp site.  The site coordinator for each 12 Tour or Seahawks Gatorade Junior Training Camp will have a cellular telephone on site at all times AND WILL CALL 911 in the case of an emergency. The site coordinator must have a base knowledge of the facility in-order to provide the emergency response team with the proper entry/evacuation points.

The Seattle Seahawks believe that the fundamental purpose of participation in youth sports is to enhance physical and emotional growth.  Our goal is to encourage a positive attitude in young men and women while teaching them football skills in a safe environment.  Camp coaches are selected to serve as teachers and role models for camp participants.

Q: What other ways can my child get involved in football?
