At our Mini #BlackOPS QB Schools, coaches from our Whitfield Athletix staff come from San Diego to your city to teach the finer aspects of Quarterback play.  Mini #BlackOPS is not your ordinary Quarterback camp.

At Whitfield Athletix we don’t take your athlete through your traditional factory workshop of taking (100) – 3 step and 5 step drops.  We don’t line up a group of fifty athletes and throw routes.  Mini #BlackOPS is a specialized small group QB training program.  We strive to give each individual QB the tools he needs to be successful.

Our Mini #BlackOPS consists of (4) sessions throughout the weekend. Each session focuses on a specific principle towards building a better and more efficient passer. The Mini #BlackOPS weekend is littered with numerous competitions to cultivate a fun and competitive environment.

The first session primarily focuses on analyzing each quarterback and diagnosing room for improvement.  From there we take the morning to teach proper base and setup. We teach young athletes how to use their entire body to generate power and accuracy throwing the football.

We finish the morning session with a workshop on how to throw with touch.  After a lunch break we return in the afternoon for our second session.
