The Pueblo Academy of Arts Football team has 
scheduled a TWO-DAY MINI-CAMP set for
TUESDAY, July 10 and WEDNESDAY, July 11 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. both nights.

The camp will be held at the football field next to PAA.

Players in 7th and 8th grade can participate. Please wear shorts and a T-shirt and cleats if you have them. Also please bring plenty of water. For more information call coach Mestas at 719-671-8267.


Thank you for your interest in participating in the 2018 Phoenix Football season. Our team is open to all 7th & 8th graders that attend Pueblo Academy of Arts (PAA), or to 7th & 8th grade students that attend other schools that do not have a football team at their school and live in the PAA area.

We will have a mini-camp in late June or early July. The camp will be 2-3 days long and is open to anyone that is interested in playing. The camp will be focused on conditioning and some basic football concepts. Once the dates for the camp have been finalized, it will be announced in the Pueblo Chieftain, as well as our team Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/Phoenix-Football-216709061680374/ .

League Information

Official practices will begin in late July or early August. The office start date has not yet been announced by the League yet. You will not be allowed to attend official practices until you are registered with the league and the league puts you on our official roster. You can register online at the Pueblo Police Activities League website, www.pueblopal.org. The league will also allow in-person registrations at the league office. Check the League website in June to see the dates and times available for in-person registration.

Cost: The league has not announced the cost of registration for 2018. Last year the cost was $60 if you used your own equipment. If you used the league’s equipment (i.e., Helmet & Shoulder Pads), there was an additional $30 rental fee. The cost for registration and equipment rental will be updated on the League website once the registration period opens.

The Phoenix coaching staff looks forward to having you participate with our team in the upcoming year. If you have any questions, please contact us.
