Q: My son has never played QB, is that a problem?
A: Not at all. Our emphasis at Alliance is not where a kid starts when he comes to us, but rather how much he develops while working with us. With any new QB, regardless of age, we start off very basic. We like to do this in a 1 on 1 personal training session to focus on exactly where he's at with his throwing mechanics, drops, and pocket presence. Once we build a solid foundation and he's feeling more confident, we will have him start participating in our group trainings.
Q: My son plays other sports, does he have to choose 1 sport?
A: Absolutely not. Most of our QB's play at least 1 other sport, and we actually recommend that they do. Our training is designed to work with and compliment the schedules of other sports. With that being said, they can't neglect QB work for an entire offseason.
Q: Is it worth the time and money to train with Alliance if your Youth or High School Program doesn't throw the ball very much?
A: Yes. Regardless of the type of offensive system a kid plays in, he needs to have proper throwing mechanics and drops. The more capable a QB is throwing the ball, the more likely a coach is to let him do it. If only 6 passes are called in a game, we tell our QB's to be 6 for 6. If 30 passes are called, we tell our QB's to be 30 for 30. The only way to be able to do either is by putting in work in the offseason.
Q: What's the best way to get started training with Alliance QB Academy?
A: You can contact us via email at info@allianceqbacademy or call us at (253) 315-3328 anytime. This allows us to ask questions about your schedule and availability. Afterward, we schedule a day, time, and location to get together for a personal training session. The first session is free, which allows each kid to get a familiarity of our coaching style. After the first session, we put together an entire offseason training program tailored toward each kids individual needs.
