FLEX ACADEMY AUG 12TH

Flex Academy™ is a pro-inspired, fast-paced, one-of-a-kind, on-the-field clinic experience for football players ages 5-14. This football clinic was designed for players to experience and learn the style of play learned at the NFL level, the "Flex Style” of limited-contact play. "Flex style of play" defined:

    • Game speed tempo

    • Low-impact: no head or shoulder contact, no tackling

    • Focus on football athleticism: hand, feet and body positioning

    • Focus on high football IQ: physical, spatial and situational awareness

The proprietary clinic curriculum, developed and taught by former and current NFL players, centers around our core concepts of Flex Contact™ and Flex IQ™. The Flex Academy™ will build better football athletes so players progress safely through their football career.

Players who attend need to wear cleats and athletic wear. Equipment and camp shirts will be provided.

Ages: 5-14

What players should expect:

  1. Highest level coaching from professional athletes
  2. To have a blast
  3. Once in a lifetime clinic on the Cowboys practice field
  4. Flex Academy shirt

Why Flex Academy?

  • Football parents and other key stakeholders in the game should feel more comfortable around contact football, and they should feel confident that safety around the game is being shown care and is improving.

  • Adoption of the Flex style of play, inspired by practice style seen at the NFL level, is the solution to safety concerns that our game needs. Flex style of play defined:

    • Game speed tempo

    • Low-impact: no head or shoulder contact, no tackling

    • Focus on football athleticism: hand, feet and body positioning

    • Focus on high football IQ

  • Young football players need professional-level training in a limited-contact environment on the art of engaging in contact with an opponent focusing on hand, feet and body positioning as opposed to head and shoulder placement.

  • This focus, combined with enhanced football athleticism and high football I.Q., will make players more physically and situationally aware and ultimately better and safer football players.
