June is camp month for Washington State

JUNE IS camp month at Washington State. In addition to their own camp event to be held on June 13, they’ll be in Lynnwood on Friday for the Northwest Elite Camp run by former Cougar quarterback Cole Morgan. The WSU staff will also travel to California to provide hands-on instruction at five satellite camps.

Washington State will work two camps in the Los Angeles area in the month of June, according to the assistant coaches we talked to this week.

They’ll also be in Northern California, in the Walnut Creek area.

They’ll also be at a camp in Sacramento, plus one in San Diego.

A conference rule (championed by UW and USC back in the ‘90s) prohibits a school from holding their own camp away from campus. But a coaching staff can work other camps away from their campus, just so long as they're not the ones putting them on.

The so-called satellite camps have become a hot button issue, with the SEC planning to introduce legislation to the NCAA to do away with the camps. It has been predicted in the media that the NCAA would decline to do so, since the camps are hugely beneficial to prospects. The camps get the prospects in front of more schools’ coaches and without having to incur the expense of traveling to those schools.

Meanwhile, the trend line continues when it comes to school camps. The vast proliferation of more and more third-party camps in recent years has decreased the number of prospects who travel to school camps at places like Washington State.

WSU last year trimmed down their camp agenda, doing away with the high school team camp part of it as well as the full-contact portion. They held two non-contact camp days, with two kicking showcases held on the same days.

This year they’ll hold one camp (featuring agility drills, football specific drills, 1 on 1's and 7 on 7) and one kicking showcase, on June 13.
