Capital QB’s Tykes Quarterback Training Curriculum:
Our curriculum is carefully crafted to introduce young athletes to the essentials of quarterback play, with a focus on the following key areas:
- Footwork: We lay the groundwork for excellent quarterback mobility, teaching the tykes proper stances, steps, and movement patterns that are crucial for giving proper hand offs, evading defenders and setting up for a pass.
- Passing Mechanics: Understanding that accurate passing starts with proper technique, our program breaks down the mechanics of throwing a football, from grip to release, ensuring our young quarterbacks can deliver the ball with precision.
- Handoff Mechanics: A good quarterback must also execute handoffs flawlessly. We train our players in the timing and technique of handing off the ball, an essential skill for any offensive play.
- Football Agility Skills: Agility with the ball is fundamental. Our drills emphasize quickness and control, enabling quarterbacks to navigate the field effectively while maintaining possession under pressure.
- Throwing Accuracy: Precision is key for a successful quarterback. Our sessions focus on improving our players’ accuracy, enabling them to hit their targets consistently.
- Knowledge of Basic Plays: We introduce tyke-age players to the basic plays of football, fostering an understanding of the game’s strategies and helping them to make smart decisions during play.
This comprehensive training program is designed to instill confidence and competence in our young quarterbacks, equipping them with the skills they need to excel on the field and enjoy the game to its fullest.
