What You’ll Learn
This program is for players that are new to the sport, players that have played on a team or are playing but want more training to develop their skills. Because this is a non-contact football skills training program all skill levels train well together.
Athletes ages 8-14 that enter this program should sign up if they are preparing to play football in either youth flag football, extreme flag football, youth tackle football or they are prepping to get ready for middle school or high school football.
What To Expect
The purpose for football skills training is to help younger athletes develop in every area of football except for full contact blocking and tackling. Skills the incoming players can expect to develop during the program are:
Functional strength and mobility
Throwing and catching development (Every player catches a minimum of 50 balls per session)
The proper stances for offensive and defensive players
Overall footwork development for every position
Intro to route running. Players learn and improve their route running skills.
Intro to man coverage. Players learn the fundamentals for off and press coverage.
1 v 1’s – Players use what they have learned and compete in route running and coverage against one another. This part of the program is important because it gives coach(s) the opportunity to help players understand and adjust route running and coverage skills without the pressure of winning or losing a game. Players are matched up by skill level.
Every session is completed with Football Yoga. Designed to strengthen and lengthen the muscles of players for the purpose of increasing physical performance, injury prevention, and increasing mobility.
