Youth will have the opportunity to participate in a number of drills, including bag, cone and ladder drills, quarterback drills, running back agility drills, running back ball drills, wide receiver and tight end drills, linebacker and defensive line drills as well as defensive back drills. A hydration station will also be on site for camp participants to utilize.

Players and coaches from the Missouri Western State Griffons football team will be on-hand leading camp participants in all the drills throughout the day.

Each camp participant will receive two complimentary tickets to the Friday, Aug. 10 preseason game when the Chiefs take on the Arizona Cardinals in a 7 p.m. kickoff at Arrowhead Stadium. Immediately following the Gatorade Junior Training Camp, participants and their families will be able to watch the Chiefs take the practice field for a training camp practice at 3:20 p.m. All camp participants will also be able to enter their name to participate in the helmet walk after practice, allowing the chance to walk with a Chiefs player and carry their helmet. Each camp participant will also be able to enter for the chance to take home a case of limited edition Chiefs-branded Gatorade.
