Each session will be designed to meet YOUR needs and exceed YOUR expectations. Just like in life, no two people are exactly alike, so why should your training sessions be?

At practice, we will focus on fundamentals, footwork and proper technique with specialized drills to meet positional needs. From proper 3-step drop, to route running to press coverage, we can do it all. All practice sessions can be adjusted to match the style of play of your team.

For advanced athletes that wish to become a student of the game, we will learn about big picture schemes and strategies from an offensive and defensive perspective. For example, what is the purpose of Cover 3 Buzz? Why must a receiver release outside of the defensive back? Several film examples will be provided from a wide range of college programs.

Each session will be filmed using multiple cameras to enhance mechanics and fundamentals of throwing, catching, footwork & tackling and to maximize our potential.

Coach Mike is going to get me to the next level, and beyond, as a football player and QB. He works players to give all they can - there is no better way to learn than to push your boundaries. I would recommend him to anyone! Thanks, Coach!

Our second session with Coach Michael, consistent enthusiasm and focus. Watching from the sidelines, we can tell that the Coach is giving 200% and really loves what he’s doing. Our son is getting so much from the coaching and feels empowered and engaged, he can’t wait for next class. Coach Michael gives a great balance of encouragement and technical insight, his post session reports give good insights and summarize opportunity.

My Son had a great first session with Coach Michael. Coach Michael brought his A game and had a complete program ready for my Son on his first session. My Son is 14 and needs this kind of one-on-one structure. When the session was complete my Son said "I really like Coach Michael, he gets me, and the drills and techniques he worked on with me helped me correct a few of my techniques." We just booked more sessions with Coach Mike and my Son looks forward to continued honing of his skills. Great Job Coach Michael!
