Klausing Wing T Camps

Posted by admin July - 19 - 2012 - Thursday

It’s probably too late this summer but I just want any of my Wing T coaching colleagues to consider investing in a Klausing Wing T Camp next summer. Jeff Simmons and his staff of coaches (all college coaches with an extensive background in coaching Wing T) do an excellent job.

This is our second straight year of attending one of Coach Klausing’s camps (Jeff, by the way, is Chuck Klausing’s grandson!) and our kids AND coaches get sooooooo much out of 2 days worth of instruction. Last year was the first year of installing the Wing T at my new school. The camp was a great introduction for our players. THIS summer (we just went on Monday and Tuesday of this week) saw such a change in our kids! Now… the techniques that the coaches had them working on weren’t new. The improvement I saw just in 2 days was unbelievable. We had a chance to “experiment” with a couple of plays that I’ve thought about including in our playbook and the staff showed us some nice passing game concepts too.

I highly recommend that you contact Jeff at Carnegie-Mellon football next winter and make plans to get him and his staff to your school. Even better… invite other Wing T teams in your area to attend. Once you pay costs, it can be a great fund-raiser for you. I understand that a coach in Southwest Virginia had 5 schools at his camp last week. That’s 150- 175 kids. $100 a kid???!!! niiiiice! If you want to get better at executing your Wing T offense, you won’t find a better way to help you improve.
