Buda Youth Football Camp Starts Tonight


It’s camp season for Texas high school football, but that doesn’t mean younger kids can’t get in on the action too.

The Buda Youth Sports Association begins their July football camp tonight at 6 p.m. at Barton Middle School welcoming kids age four through 13. If you want to get your future Lehman Lobo or Hays Rebel ready, or they are interested in playing with the Buda Bandits during the season, walk-up registration is available.

While football parents know very well how expensive camp season is, the Buda Youth Sports Association bucks that trend with a $10 registration for the three-day camp.

We had an idea of structuring a youth organization in such a way that we could reach any family, regardless of financial standing. We decided hosting a free camp would get kids out there and would not discourage those that normally couldn’t afford it,” BYSA president Frank Moreno said. “ We were right, we had quite a few that first year and we worked very hard to show the community that we were a great place for your family to enjoy football and cheer.

Moreno said that word quickly spread and the camp started seeing growth every year, but through all the growth, the same philosophy and goals have remained.

“Camp is now $10, because as we grew we decided to give out Bandits gear and added equipment to accommodate the larger and larger turnouts each year. Sponsors such as Texas Old Town, Serranos Tex Mex and Rick’s Tees make that possible as well. We are a non profit and our staff is 100% volunteer.”

While the camp was started as a sort of grassroots effort, Moreno and the association ensure kids receive proper training, which includes having coaches who are Heads Up Tackling Certified and trained by USA Football.

The camp follows a schedule with fundamentals stations on the first day, a mini combine tomorrow, and flag football games and a team obstacle course challenge on Wednesday.

The BYSA, which also has a cheer program, will close the camp this year with a performance by the Bandits cheer squad.

Again, if you didn’t register in advance, registration is available on site at the Barton Middle School practice fields in Buda tonight.

Be sure to check back, as Texas Redzone Report will be reporting from the camp tomorrow.
