Inaugural Women's & Girl's Clinic & Camp

The Manning Passing Academy, entering its 23rd year, will launch its inaugural MPA Football Clinic & Camp for Women & Girls on June 25- 26 on the campus of Nicholls State University.

“This is an historic moment for both the MPA and for the women and girls who want to play, learn and coach the great game of football,” said Archie Manning, who along with sons Cooper, Peyton and Eli, are the namesake of the Annual Passing Academy. “Our camp director brought the concept to our family from a conversation he had with two former NFL female staff members. We love the progressive idea and said, “Why wait?” and moved forward to set the date.”

The MPA Football Clinic & Camp for Women & Girls is open to women of all ages and girls in grades 8 through 12. The camp begins on Monday, June 25, a day after the conclusion of the traditional MPA camp for boys, and finishes on Tuesday, June 26. This year’s format revolves around a one-night speaker’s clinic and one-day interactive camp.

Sponsors Wilson, Gatorade and Riddell are taking part in this ground-breaking Clinic and Camp opportunity, while a portion of the proceeds from camp will benefit “Girls on the Run” which is a national nonprofit organization that uses running and other physical activities as a platform for teaching life skills and promoting holistic health outcomes in girls.
