About Coach Ron Raymond
Capital QB’s was established in June 2011 by renowned Head Coach Ron Raymond, an eight-time champion from Ottawa, Ontario. With over 30 years of experience playing and coaching the quarterback position in the Ottawa area, Coach Raymond has provided training to numerous amateur and university quarterbacks, in addition to other players.
Coach Ron has published a book called; “Building Your QBIQ“, which is a comprehensive guide designed to help high school quarterbacks improve their football knowledge and skills. The book covers various topics, including football terminology and rules, offensive and defensive formations, situational football, leadership, mental toughness, quarterback mechanics, game situations and decision-making, offensive scheme and play calling, and cognitive performance and sports psychology.
Coach Ron Raymond’s Coaching Philosophy:
In running a successful quarterback training program, Coach Raymond applies the same principles he learned from his military background, where preparation and structure are essential components for achieving success. He understands that one of the greatest challenges in coaching quarterbacks is gaining the commitment and buy-in of the players to develop into a well-rounded, complete quarterback.
Coach Raymond’s extensive experience has taught him that without full commitment and dedication to training, players will face obstacles in achieving their goals and full potential. However, he views each new group of quarterbacks as a fresh opportunity to increase their work standards, instill values such as dedication and hard work, and cultivate a strong sense of teamwork that will lead to on-field success.
Through comprehensive training, individualized coaching, and a focus on the fundamentals of quarterback play, Coach Raymond and his team help players build the confidence and skills needed to reach their goals. Join our program today and take the first step towards achieving your full potential as a complete, well-rounded quarterback.
