Youth Lineman Camps in Washington

Barton Football Academy is pleased to announce the launch of our Youth (5th and 6th grade) Lineman Camps! Every Saturday in April from 11am to 12 pm at Garfield High School.

These will be introductory type sessions that will allow young players to grow and learn. One thing that sets our sessions apart from anyone else: we teach skills. We do not run kids through drills and call it good. Our sessions will consist of 2 phases each approximately a half hour in length.

Our focus will be on:
Defensive Emphasis: Proper explosive get-off, use of proper hand technique and defeating blocks.
Offensive Emphasis: Run blocking fits, playing with angles and leverage, and utilizing solid pass protection footwork.

"Start Young, Never Quit"
Regardless of level or system these fundamental tools will help any lineman become a more rounded and explosive player. I look forward to the great work we will do!
