WELCOME, CAMP SHUTOUT!

The sustainable success model.

PWCJ uses a “coach the coaches” program model, enlisting players from the regional football club and local youth coaches to serve as mentors and role models to the youth who look up to them. 

Our coaches demonstrate how to run an effective camp—providing leadership and mentorship skills along with a proven, evidence-based curriculum. This enables successful camps and clinics in the future, ensuring sustainability after our departure and impacting more youth in need.
