Session #2
Skills assessment.

Athletes complete a combine style circuit which tests their position specific skill set. By assessing each athlete's individual skill set, we can group athlete's based on specific needs instead of using the more common one drill for all curriculum .

Session #1 

Athletic assessment 

Athletes complete a combine circuit to evaluate their strength, speed and agility. The circuit allows us to better evaluate each athlete on an individual basis and establish a base line. Establishing a baseline helps ensure that athletes are grouped with similar athletic ability which allows us to maximize our instruction and help the athlete advance. 

Midwest Gridiron Academy training camps focus on long term athlete development. In addition to skills development our curriculum gives athletes the tools to develop their speed, strength and agility. The training doesn't end when camp is over. All athletes who attend one of our ​​training camps get unlimited access to the Total Trainer Virtual Coach. Total Trainer makes it possible to train year round with a customized training program specific to the athletes position, age, and skill level.  **Please note MGA training camps do not teach kicking or punting skills.

Director of Football Programing

Welcome to Midwest Gridiron Academy, ​
​Training Camps, 7v7, and Wisconsin's only All State Youth National Championship team. If it involves football, MGA has a program for you.


Remember that kid on the other side of the field last year? The one who was just as big and strong as your son? He may be your son's compitition for playing time, and starting spot this fall.

High school is the great equalizer and playing time is earned in the offseason. Is your son ready for the next level? What is he doing this summer to earn that spot?

Fresh 30 was born out of need. It is designed to equip younger players with the tools they need to be successful for high school and beyond. Studies have shown that many incoming freshmen where not in the proper shape they needed to be when they started in 9th grade. In addition it took an average of 18 months of consistent weight room training, proper technique coaching, and most importantly proper stretching methods to allow the athletes not only to get stronger in the weight room but also to prevent injuries.

Fresh 30 is designed to get that process jump started. It is available via our Total trainer Virtual coach and if your son is working out with his high school this summer his coach can add team workouts and personal goals to the program.

The Fresh 30 program is part of the MGA training camp after care program and all attendees receive access to the program.

Session #1


This phase is designed to bring out the competitor in our athletes. We put the athletes in competitive situations to help motivate them and access technique while performing. 

We call it the Football Olympics. Athletes are grouped and teams are formed. We then put them thru a series of challenges. Each challenge helps us access the athletes ability to perform in a competitive situation.

This method is very effective in helping us spot break downs in technique  when an athlete has to perform, and can't think about their fundementals.
