Does my child need football experience to participate?
No prior football experience is required to participate. The Eagles Online Football Academy are open to everyone from novices to the more experienced player.
Is there a limit on how many family members can participate?
We designed the program to allow multiple family members to participate, however please note that each paid registration is limited to two (2) ZOOM Logins per Online Eagles Academy session. Meaning a family who registers can only login using two (2) ZOOM Logins. If you will require more than 2 ZOOM Logins we will ask that you register for the appropriate amount (1 registration = 2 ZOOM Logins).
When will my family receive our ZOOM Link?
Three (3) days prior to the session we will email out the ZOOM Link and also post it on the Private Facebook. For example, for the July 1st session you will receive your ZOOM Link by Sunday, July 27 at 1 pm eastern time. The ZOOM Link will be posted on the Private Facebook Group as well.
Will ZOOM Session be recorded?
Yes each session will be recorded and a link to access the session will be posted on the Private Facebook Group.
What do participants have to wear?
CLOTHING: Players should be dressed appropriately to participate in NON-Contact football drills and exercises, we suggest shorts and t-shirts.
FOOTWEAR: All players are required to wear shoes that are conducive to the surface you are running on. Since each participant will be conducting the drills at his/her home or in his/her yard you will need to determine the best footwear for the surface you are on.
What do participants need to participate?
SPACE: Each participant should have a 10-foot by 10-foot area to conduct drills and exercises. The drills and exercises are designed to be done either inside or outside, however, it is a better experience if an athlete can be outdoors for the drills. All participants should adhere to social distancing guidelines.
EQUIPMENT: No equipment is required, however, it will be a better experience for participants if they have a football and eight (8) cones.
HYDRATION: Athletes should have access to hydration during the session.
What professional players will participate?
Each Online Academy will have a different Philadelphia Eagles Player or Legend. The participating Philadelphia Eagles Player will host a virtual meet & greet and Q&A during each session.
Will the team mascot be there?
Yes, the Philadelphia Eagles mascot, SWOOP will be at one of the Online Academy Sessions
Do registered participants receive a t-shirt?
There is no t-shirt included in the registration fee for the Online Academy.
Private Facebook Group

Upon registering you will be admitted to the Private Group where we will post videos, answer questions and encourage the Eagles Families to connect.

What happens in the event of inclement weather?

Will you watch my child during the session?

If you qualify for a refund, the Philadelphia Eagles Football Academy will provide a refund minus any processing fees. To clarify if you paid $60 plus a $3.50 processing fee you will receive a $60 refund and the $3.50 processing fee will not be refunded. All refund requests must be made in writing via email to email@example.com.
Do I need to submit health forms?
No health forms are required for Philadelphia Eagles Football Academy camps, clinics, and events. During the registration process, you will be required to sign a waiver stating that the participant you are registering is in good physical health and can participate fully in the activity.
Waivers and Concussion Management Plans
All Eagles Online Youth Football Academy sessions are non-contact and focus on skills and drills. Eagles Youth Football Academy sessions do not use equipment (such as helmets or shoulder pads), however, based on best practices for non-contact camps, all parents are asked to review the concussion management action plan which was created by the CDC through their Heads Up program. For more information on head injuries and protocols please click here.
All events accept online registration and require that parents make payments in USD.
