Protege99 Academy, Incorporated is a 501 (c)-3 non-profit organization established in 2009 to improve wellness and build communities. By creating a support network for our campers and families, Protege99 strives to ensure that the youth in our community are proud of their efforts and imagine a future of possibilities.
Protege99 is a grassroots movement which is built around the integrity of our community and the needs of our youth. In today’s society, sports are a positive outlet for young adults, and they need the right tools and direction to ensure that they are successful.
We are offering a non-contact skills football program for all experience levels, from beginner to all-stars!
Our objective is to teach a solid foundation of conditioning, individual technique training, fundamental skills that will allow each player to receive a comprehensive knowledge of football from the initial introduction to their professional career on and off the field. Young athletes are not getting the fundamental skills needed to become developed for football on and off the field. This is an all-inclusive sports program that offers a variety of sports, educational activities, and quality mentor experiences.
We have designed drill combinations that focus on techniques that improve the fundamental skill set for all positions: offensive and defensive. Our participants learn about the role and expectations of each position with an emphasis on safety that extends to the practice drills which helps develop their mastery of the position. Our camp’s instructors teach the drills with this understanding in order to foster a deeper knowledge of the game.
Protege99 Academy provides expert training by former college and NFL coaches. Our experience level is what makes Protege99 an excellent choice for youth athletes looking to improve their skills on and off the football field.
