Palisades High School Summer Football Camp Returns

Coach Todd Tharen will return this summer with his popular football camp at Palisades High School. “This is our fourth year and each year gets bigger and better. It’s all about fun!” Tharen said.

The camp is for ages five to 12 and runs Monday through Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Sessions are June 20-23, June 27-30 and July 25-28.

Training will include conditioning, speed and agility; knowledge of rules and learning how to play; wet-water football day; water balloon toss; Capture the Flag and scrimmage games.

“Kids will gain a fast knowledge of the game and learn what it takes to compete while having fun,” said Tharen, noting that older kids will get to work with college-skilled players at selected positions.

Tharen started playing football when he was eight and received a foot- ball scholarship after playing at Fairfax High School. He attended Marshall University in West Virginia as a receiver/punt returner.

“I played with some truly great future NFL players including Randy Moss, Chad Pennington and Troy Brown in college,” said Tharen, who has coached at Venice High for seven seasons, coached middle school football at Calvary Christian School for three years and has been a volunteer coach at the Palisades-Malibu YMCA for 10 years.
