Coaches,

  My coaches and I are putting together a speed, strength, and agility camp this pre-season.  If we call it speed, strength, and agility, I'm afraid we will not get the turnout we want.  It will be free - many in the community can't afford anything - and we will give a tee shirt to all who make every session.

  I need a name for the clinic.  Our mascot is an Indian.  Any ideas?  Counting on all the clever coaches on here......

We couldn't come up with a name so we called our Camp The Camp and it stuck since it is open to all players from anywhere.

What is beautiful, lives forever.

What is your Indian mascot's name?  There is a nearby boy scout camp here called Camp Kickapoo.  Silly name.  But come up with an Indian name.  Camp Little Big Horn or Camp Crazy Horse... something like that.

CoachAD, I am running a similar camp this Spring.  I am hesitant to call it Speed/Strength/Agility as well.  I have been calling it Spring Training. 

Would you care to share your camp agenda and drills with me?  I'm always looking for something more to add.  I can send you mine as well.

No joke!  Not sure where they got that name, but it sure does give itself a target for making fun of...

It's from a Tenacious D song.

Sounds like it would be, but the camp has been around longer than Tenacious D.

Well... looks like they renamed it from Kickapoo a couple years back:  http://newsok.com/boy-scouts-dedicate-camp-kickapoo-as-john-w.-nichols-scout-ranch/article/3460839

When I first glanced at your post I thought Kickapoo was the new name.  I was like, What the hell was the old name?

As a kid, I always thought Kickapoo was a funny name.  I guess they are attempting to re-image the place.  About time!

Call it Melissa.

What makes you think a name referring to strength, speed, or agility would turn people off?
