THE ACALANES DONS FOOTBALL PROGRAM is excited to announce that the DONS Youth Football Academy is happening this Summer.

The Football Academy will take place at Acalanes July 9 – 12  and is open to all athletes entering 5th-9th grade in the Fall of 2018.


Since this is new for our program, we are asking for your help to spread the word.  We hope to make this the most sought after youth summer football camp in the East Bay. Please send the attached camp flyer to any families that have kids interested in learning more about football.

GOAL of the DONS Youth Football Academy is to teach fundamentals, develop skills, and help kids with the transition to tackle football in a fun, fast-paced, and non-contact environment.

The Dons Youth Football Academy will be staffed by current Acalanes High School Football coaches as well as a full complement of experienced high school and college players and a certified trainer.
