Being a student of the game means doing more than just going to practice and learning your plays. A student of the game strives to master football fundamentals long before the season starts.
The Player Academy teaches young players how to master football fundamentals. Through age and position specific instruction, players learn techniques and philosophies in a fun and challenging environment. As the Official Youth Football Development Partner of the NFL, USA Football’s Player Academy is the best way to develop students of the game.
On the field
Our curriculum allows players to have the best practices for their respective ages and positions. In small groups led by your area’s top youth and high school coaches, players receive individual attention while modified contact is used to help them best prepare for the season.
In the classroom
Players review what they learned on the field and are taught the finer details of the game. Topics include the responsibilities of their positions, formations, and alignment. The classroom sessions not only explore how the fundamentals should be executed but teach why they lead to success.
