“It’s the Christmas season. My vision is to provide a fun and inexpensive opportunity for players from the San Gabriel Valley to come out and compete in the great game of football one more time before Christmas break,” Rix said in a press release. “I realize most of them won’t be in this kind of environment again until spring ball. This is for skill players who can’t get enough football, want to continue to grow in their craft and have fun doing it. Football is a game and games are supposed to be fun. ”
“I want this camp to be one every athlete can attend. If a family cannot realistically afford the cost of the camp, they can bring an unopened toy that will be donated to a needy family for Christmas and I will happily scholarship their son.”
Rix’s vision is for the ‘Christmas Combine’ to turn into an annual event. He plans to expand the combine to other positions in the future.
Chris Rix will lead the camp along with his coaching staff from Champion Training Academy.
