AGES 12-18: Downloadable Programs, App, In-Person Training, & 1-on-1 Coaching

*The test-in option is a way for ages 10-11 to test into in-person training.

WHY IS IT STRUCTURED THIS WAY?: We want to help as many football athletes as we can, but unfortunately, not all young athletes want it as bad as their parents.

We see way to often, where the parent unintentionally forces their athlete into something that the athlete doesn’t truly want.

So, we have developed training options based on age groups to help all athletes at all levels as well as locations, until they’re truly ready for the commitment that comes with in-person training with SF® coaches.

This includes our “Elite Remote Coaching” for those who are not in Southern California and needing 1-on-1 virtual coaching

We take training and coaching very serious as well as our athletes goals and their futures such as scholarship opportunities.

This is where we are different.

So when your athlete says, “I want to play in college or the NFL”, we are the professionals that will help get them there.

Our Mission at Starke Football®

To help our athletes become their best.

Is this an In-Person Training or Online?

Both. We have both in-person as well as online training products that you can purchase for your middle school and high school athlete(s). You’ll be able to access the platform when the programs are available to purchase and start training on any device with internet connection at any time.

What Tools or Equipment do I need?

If you’re participating in our in-person training programs and camps, all you need is typical running shoes as well as cleats for field training. Balls, cones, ladders, hurdles, weights, etc. for in-person training will all be provided.

To complete any of our online training programs when available, all you need is a football and cleats. Yes some of our coaches in our online training programs use equipment, but it’s not necessary for the success of the athlete to have at home.

Most of our drills and training are usually modified to fit small spaces such as back yards and garages if you have one.

Keeping track of progress.

Every SF® athlete will receive a Training Workbook that will be utilized as their data journal to keep track of their progress. It’s easy to just work out each day, but if you don’t know where you’ve started, where you’re going, what are your weak points as well as your strength, you’ll never know how far you’ve come or how far you can push yourself.

Can any training be adapted to another sport?

Simple answer, Yes! All SF® trainings can be added to any training regimen but each SF®️ program is football specific.

Can my grade schooler use this training?

Yes, sure can! But we recommend only using SF®️bodyweight training. This can be done by purchasing and downloading the SF®️ bodyweight training program and or subscribing to SF® Training App. As for in-person training, we go as young as 10 years old but ages 10-11 are invited thru our tested-in program. Ask about how to test-in by clicking the “CHAT” button below.

Much Needed Training

``My boys needed this. The discipline is what I enjoy the most as a parent. It transitions over to home and school and my boys adore Coach Wes. He's strict when it comes to making sure my boys are working their hardest every time, and he's not afraid to really give them a kick in the butt when their being lazy. But he does it in a way that empowers my boys and I love this. I'll always sing praises of Coach Wes and Starke Football!``
