New high school football camp debuts in Shelburne

Former Champlain Valley Union and Colchester High School standouts JP Benoit and Jack Leclerc respectively will offer a one-week camp specifically for high school athletes looking to improve their football skills July 15-19 at the Shelburne Community School in Shelburne this summer. Open to all high school football players and offered Monday through Friday from 5:30-8 pm for a fee of $110, the camp is best suited for position players such as quarterbacks, running backs, wide outs, tight ends, defensive backs, and linebackers.

“This is a great opportunity for incoming ninth graders and high school football players to improve skills and gain confidence before tryouts and the upcoming season,” Benoit informed.  A former star running back at CVU and current receiver on UVM’s club football team, Benoit has been the assistant youth football camp director under CVU head coach Jim Provost for the past four years.

“I wanted to have a compliment to the youth camp but one that was more skill and technique oriented,” Benoit commented. “Although still involved with the CVU camp I wanted to direct my own camp that focuses on the things that I have used during my career and led to my success on the football field,” he said. “My goal is to see an athlete I train become a state champion before I graduate college.”

Future state champions may register by email at, or call Benoit at (802) 318-5148 for more information.
