Football camp participation

As a kid having a chance to attend football camps where instruction is taught by a professional athlete would be unheard of, let alone attending a camp by a professional athlete who brought a super bowl to your city? That would be the dream. This isn’t the case according to the Pittsburgh Post Gazette who using research provided to the SFIA by Sports Marketing Surveys USA quoted it in their article on the decline of participation in Football.

“Sports & Fitness Industry Association survey reports youths between the ages of 6 and 18 playing football has dropped 5.4 percent.”

This had a direct correlation with Ben Roethlisbergers camp “Giant Eagle Ben Roethlisberger Football Camps” which had a decrease in sign ups from 500 to 420 this year with only 390 children actually attending. With a major concern from parents on concussions the camp is non contact but still not able maintain their numbers.
