Academy Features
  • The coaching staff will thoroughly train and prepare each player during the entire academy to be a better, more confident football player. With excellent football, recreational and housing facilities, top coaches and athletic trainers, our goal is to give each participant the finest football instruction available and a program they will never forget!
  • Daily instruction, lectures, and demonstrations.
  • Participants learn from outstanding veteran college and high school coaches, selected for their ability to coach and teach the game of football. Participants are taught at an approximately 10:1 ratio. This ratio ensures that participants receive individual and team instruction.
  • All the football a player could want. Participants receive up to 6 hours of instruction each day.
  • High school players aged 15-18 are eligible for the exclusive Gridiron Elite. A detailed information packet on each member of the Gridiron Elite will be sent to over 2,500 college football coaches to help each player receive recognition at the college level. This is great nationwide exposure that a player might not get from playing at their high school alone. This unique service is very respected by the college coaches. It has enabled hundreds of players to continue their football careers and many have received scholarships. If you would like to play at the college level, this will be an excellent opportunity to receive the best instruction available and to be seen by an outstanding lineup of college coaches.
