ARLINGTON – Every summer, Arlington High School offers sports camps for the community.

This week, head football coach Greg Dailer, his staff and Eagle players put on a camp at its stadium for boys and girls ages 6-13.

Their motto worn proudly on their t-shirts, “Hard Work, Discipline, Character.”

Each night, from 6-8, more than 100 participants practiced non-contact skills. They were split up by age and position: quarterback, running back, receiver and lineman. Even though they didn’t wear helmets or pads they still used a blocking sled and used a large ring for tackling drills. Quarterbacks passed the ball into a net with targets, while receivers ran routes and caught passes, and running backs practiced taking handoffs.

The camps end next week with soccer for boys and girls ages 9-14. They go from 9 a.m. to noon at the stadium.

For details email head coach Nathan Davis at or call the AHS athletic office at 360-618-6306.

Cross country coach Mike Shierk hosts a camp, too, just not at AHS. It’s at Camano Island State Park from July 29-31. It’s for runners from sixth to 12th grade. Arrival time is 3 p.m. that Monday and campers will return that Wednesday at 11 a.m. Cost is $90 for fee, food, firewood, supplies and guest speakers. For details email Shierk at
