The King Summer Institute in conjunction with the CT Chargers will be offering a youth house program designed to provide younger players of all abilities the opportunity to compete in structured practices and scrimmages in order to develop both individual and team concepts. The three week program will consist of Monday clinics, coached by King varsity coaches and the Chargers staff, followed by Wednesday House games. Each Monday clinic will focus on specific skills and concepts to be immediately implemented into the Wednesday scrimmages. Players will be divided into groups following initial evaluations and evenly ranked teams will compete in either full field or half-field 7 on 7 games. This format will maximize the number of "touches" for each player, thereby improving skill development.
There are no tryouts for the house league and all players who do not make the elite youth travel program are invited to play.
Coaching Staff will include several current and college and professional players as well as our experienced youth and high school coaching professionals: Jeff Brameier, Jackson Kiniry, Vin deGregorio, Mike Velez, Bobby Lutz, Paul McNulty, Greg Lewis, Keith McGivney, Danny Marin, and many more.
