Nike Football Training Camp FAQ

Below are some frequently asked questions and answers to give you a better understanding about the Nike Football Training Camps.

Q: Who attends the Nike Football Training Camps and what is their purpose?
A: The NFTCs are designed to help elite high school players with college potential advance their football and training knowledge in order to maximize their ability. Participants are taught position-specific and athletic performance drills designed by some of the top NFL football players and sports performance specialists in America, and it is all FREE for the athletes. The players will have an opportunity to work with SPARQ Trainers that have molded stars such as Chris Johnson, Calvin Johnson, Derrick Brooks, Tim Tebow and many more. In addition, top performers will have a chance to qualify for a spot at “The Opening”, Nike’s four days of dynamic competition for the country’s most elite high school football prospects in July.

Q: How does a player get registered to attend a NFTC?
A: The NFTCs are free but space is limited in order to maximize the experience for all involved. Registration information is sent out to top players/recruits who are in the Class of 2016 as well as top underclassmen. Players can be recommended by their coach as a high level recruit to pre-register for the camp. If a recommendation is not possible then a player may email a link to video highlights or DVD so he can be evaluated. A third way to get registered is to test well at a Nike Football SPARQ Combine.

Coaches can send in recommendations as soon as the season is complete; please include 2014 statistics, height, weight, position, honors/accolades, etc. with online or DVD highlights if possible.

For more information regarding the 2015 NFTCs, if you are a coach recommending a player or wanting to work the camp, or to submit an all-state or all-area team with nominees on it, please contact:

Q: What exactly happens at an NFTC?
A: Athletes who come to the NFTC will register, where they will pick up their NFTC Nike Pro jersey, and get their photo taken. After height and weight are measured, the NFTC is broken down into four parts:

1. SPARQ testing & training: After a proper, supervised “dynamic warmup,” participants will have the option to test in the 40-yard dash, 20-yard shuttle, vertical jump and kneeling power ball toss – the four tests that factor in to the SPARQ Rating. SPARQ trainers then work participants through specific drills designed to improve athletic ability, speed and explosiveness. Here, athletes have the opportunity to tap into the secrets of proper workouts that have helped players make it to the NFL, including cone and ladder drills. This period educates participants on how to improve football-specific speed, agility and quickness movements, and also how to train specifically for the needs and requirements of their individual positions.

2. Position specific drills: Participants are separated into position groups (QBs, RBs, WR/TEs, OLs, DLs, LBs and DBs) to work individually on football skills and techniques with top-notch position coaches with college and NFL experience.

3. Position competitions: The offensive line and defensive line come together for a Lineman Challenge, while the QBs, RBs, WRs, TEs, LBs and DBs participate in half-field, 3-on-4 passing drills.

4. One-on-ones: The NFTC concludes with one-on-one passing and line drills, which many say are the highlight of the camp.

Q: Are there other benefits?
A: Definitely. The NFTC provide the best opportunity for national exposure that a camp can offer. Video and action photos for Student Sports and other national media will be taken. The NFTCs are well-attended by all of the major national recruiting websites so top participants could be part of the in-depth coverage across the recruiting internet landscape. Also the Nike Football Training Camp is a great opportunity to be evaluated and potentially qualify for Student Sports’ many elite events that take place later in the summer such as the “The Opening” and Elite 11.

Q: I’ve heard one benefit of the camp is seeing other great players. Is that true?
A: Yes, the camps are known for the quality of football players they attract and one benefit to you will be seeing how you rate with your peers. Consider these numbers:

• Every year, about one of every three NFTC attendees signs with a D-I college, and this past year, 47 percent of high school seniors who signed a football scholarship attended a NFTC or Nike Football SPARQ Combine.

• The consensus No. 1 player in six of the past seven classes — Josh Sweat (Class of ’15), Da’Shawn Hand (Class of ’14), Robert Nkemdiche (Class of ’13), Florida State’s Mario Edwards (Class of ’12), Florida’s Ronald Powell (Class of ‘10) and Eagles QB Matt Barkley (Class of ‘09), all felt it important enough to attend one of the NFTCs.

• Every top college football program evaluates and signs recruits who come to NFTCs: for example, every one of the 123 Division I college football programs currently has a NFTC alum on the roster. Also, in the past, major programs like Oklahoma, USC, Florida and Ohio State have signed more than a dozen NFTC attendees in one class!

Over 600 NFTC alums currently dot NFL rosters, and that number is sure to grow in the next six months as current college stars that attended a Nike Camp complete their senior seasons and get ready for the NFL Draft. The NFTCs are where the best go to compete and get better!

Q: Can a bad performance at the NFTC hurt my stock?
A: No, definitely not. The NFTC is about getting better and competing. Bottom line, this is a top-of-the-line, well-organized event that top players can come to compete with and learn from the best. Don’t let someone tell you not to go to a NFTC without calling us at 800-660-1334 to put your concerns to rest, as there is a lot of misinformation out there and it’s important to go to the source with questions. Student Sports always places your best interests first!

Q: I am from a media outlet and I’d like to come to a NFTC. Do I need to pre-register to attend?
A: Yes, media outlets must pre-register and be pre-approved before coming to a NFTC. Please contact Kirsten Leetch at: kirsten@studentsports.com

      A: The NFTCs are free but space is limited in order to maximize the experience for all involved.

Players can be recommended by their coach as a high level recruit to pre-register for the camp. If a recommendation is not possible then a player may email a link to video highlights or DVD so he can be evaluated. A third way to get registered is to test well at a Nike Football SPARQ Combine.

      Coaches can send in recommendations as soon as the season is complete; please include 2013 statistics, height, weight, position, honors/accolades, etc. with online or DVD highlights if possible.

      For which NFTC? Please email Michael White at Michael@studentsports.com for him to look into. With the NFTC coming up quickly, you don’t want to miss out if you were invited because you might have missed getting the confirmation email. Give him your name and the NFTC you are going to.

    Will you automatically be accepted to the NFTC if you have a great sparq rating

    • kleetch

      April 24, 2014 at 1:12 pm

      Hi Dayton,

      There are different things that our football staff looks at when considering an athlete for an NFTC. A high SPARQ Rating is definitely one good way to get considered but also knowing what kind of a player the athlete is can help. Also know that there is no magic SPARQ Rating number that will gain access into a NFTC. It will vary from situation to situation. Hope this helps.

    I just recently registered for the DC combine, and it just says pending. I don’t have any film to show or stats to show, but I am one of the best athletes at my school I’ve been told. Plus I’m a hard worker and sacrificed my position to someone else because we needed another guard. That’s why I have no defensive tape or stats. But I always go to camps and combines as a linebacker because that’s my passion. I need this combine. May I attend? I won’t disappoint. I promise you that.

      Q: How does a player get registered to attend a NFTC?
      A: The NFTCs are free but space is limited in order to maximize the experience for all involved. Registration information is sent out to top players/recruits who are in the Class of 2015 as well as top underclassmen. Players can be recommended by their coach as a high level recruit to pre-register for the camp. If a recommendation is not possible then a player may email a link to video highlights or DVD so he can be evaluated. A third way to get registered is to test well at a Nike Football SPARQ Combine.

      Coaches can send in recommendations as soon as the season is complete; please include 2013 statistics, height, weight, position, honors/accolades, etc. with online or DVD highlights if possible.

      For more information regarding the 2014 NFTCs, if you are a coach recommending a player or wanting to work the camp, or to submit an all-state or all-area team with nominees on it, please contact:

      February 24, 2014 at 2:41 pm

      Yes! Please come and see what it’s all about. And, like the athletes who participate, we do not charge you to come and watch either. The camp will start at 9am and run until 2pm.

    Hello,

    I know it is a long process but I am inquiring about the email that my son sent on 1/13/14 & 2/14/14 asking for a recommendation/approval to one of your Nike Camps.

    We will be traveling from AZ to attend the Nike Combine on 3/8/14 in Cerritos, CA and noticed that you have posted a Nike Camp on 3/9/14 in Redondo Beach, CA. by any chance do you think he will be approved to attend this camp?

    Here is another clip – Defense – http://youtu.be/qQNMzH3Un80

      The guy to email is fletcher@studentsports.com. Send him his tape and he’ll get back to you. If he doesn’t, a good performance at the Nike Combine could also result in a late invitation to the next day’s Nike Camp.

    The player was injured last year so he has no tape and attended a SPARQ Combine because on your website it states that “Top performers will be eligible for selection to later Nike Football Training Camps” and also that “If a recommendation is not possible… a third way to get registered is to test well at a Nike Football SPARQ Combine.” Please advise ? ? ?? ? ?

    My son, Austin, is a part of the Bellaire (OH) class of 2015. His head coach recently resigned, his replacement hasn’t been hired, so I can’t get him a recommendation, & he will not be able to attend the SPARQ combine in Massilon as he will be in sectionals for wrestling. Other than sending in a hudl.com highlight for example, is there any other course of action to take to get him to the NFTC in Columbus this June? Thanks.

    Hi, I wanted to register for the camp in New York or New jersey since I live in Pennsylvania. I sent an email to the person listed for the offensive line and I believe I sent one to the person listed for my region too containing highlights from this season. I don’t know if the message sent correctly or not because I haven’t received a response. Also, when you say a coach’s recommendation you mean a high school coach’s correct?

    • kleetch

      February 6, 2014 at 11:26 pm

      Follow up with one of these football people that you probably sent your highlight tape to:

      Michael White – Midwest/Northeast (michael@studentsports.com)
      Todd Huber – Linemen (todd@studentsports.com)
      Michael Fletcher – Linebackers/Volunteer Coaches (fletcher@studentsports.com)
      Eugene Jackson – Defensive Backs (eugene@studentsports.com)

      And, yes, your high school coach’s recommendation.

    If you don’t have film to send in, but you still would like to participate in a NFTC can you get an invite with a good SPARQ rating from a combine? If so what is the minimum SPARQ rating to be invited to a NFTC?

    • kleetch

      February 4, 2014 at 11:09 am

      Yes, that definitely helps. And a coach recommendation helps as well. You can see on this page who to follow up with on that. There is no minimum SPARQ Rating to hit. There are a few other criteria that our football analysts take into account as well. If you score well at a Nike FB Combine, then please talk to one of the attendants at check out to discuss.

      If you graduate high school in 2015, 2016 or 2017 you are eligible to attend one of the Nike Football SPARQ Combines. If you graduate in 2018 or later, then you may be eligible for the middle school combine. You can find all of the locations here: http://www.studentsports.com/nike-football-sparq-combine-registration/

      The Nike Football Training Camps are for athletes that graduate high school in 2015 and a few exceptional class of 2016 athletes. We usually do not consider in-coming freshmen (or sophomores) to this event.

      Thanks for the interest.
