EAST LANSING, Mich. – Adult men (18 and older) are invited to enroll in the 12th-annual Spartan Football Fantasy Camp, scheduled for June 12-13 on the Michigan State campus. The entire Michigan State coaching staff, led by head coach Mark Dantonio, plus select current players will conduct offensive and defensive drills and a 7-on-7 scrimmage.
The non-contact practice sessions will be held in Spartan Stadium, and one of the fantasy camp highlights is the player introductions by the public address announcer. All practice gear – including game jerseys, shoes and authentic keepsakes – will be provided while having the opportunity to dress in the new locker room.
New this year is an option for the fantasy campers to play a round of golf with current Spartan football players and coaches. This event will take place on the morning of June 12 at College Fields Golf Course in Okemos.
The program also includes a tour of the 25,000-square-foot Skandalaris Football Center, dinner and breakfast with the MSU coaching staff and a camp-ending dinner with distinguished alumni and former players.
