The purpose of the NFL’s High School Player Development (HSPD) program is to help high school players learn what it takes to become a successful collegiate student-athlete on and off the football field.
The two day event begins on Friday, June 17 with a symposium focusing on character development and specific skill training. The character development portion includes guest speakers, including NFL players and coaches and members of the Florida National Guard. The high school players will be taught practical life lessons and preparation for standardized tests, along with discussions on life after high school, personal development and community service.
On-field components of the HSPD program include fundamental skill development by position, reviews, and individual competitions. As part of on-field training, players focus on both an offensive and a defensive position and eventually apply their newly-learned fundamentals to live drills. Participants have access to innovative teaching and drills developed by leading NCAA and NFL coaches.
The tournament begins on Saturday, June 18 with Round Robin play and then single elimination. The winning team will represent South Florida and the Miami Dolphins in the 2011 HSPD National Championships in Cleveland Ohio, July 7th – 10th.
