The Idaho Youth Elite Football Academy Athletes

Ages 9 - 18

Our off season training is focussed primarily on skill development and conditioning. 

Select IEFA athletes can also travel to train with athletes from other states and countries.

Idaho Elite Football Academy

At IEF, our coaching approach revolved around the central tenet of improving team and athlete performance. Our staff focuses on positive reinforcement techniques. Many of our coaches are also part of the local High School, College, and Youth League coaching staff. To us this means we are developing young leaders, academically prepared athletes, and looking to maximize the youth’s potential on and off the field.

Our spring training program is limited contact and really focusses on helping each athlete become more skilled in his or her position.

  • Quarterbacks – Footwork, proper mechanics, how to read different types of coverage, pass arc and temp (touch pass versus bullet), play calling and learning a playbook
  • Wide Receivers/Tight Ends – alignment, steps/depth on individual and combination routes, pass-catching skills, and releases off the line of scrimmage
  • Offensive/Defensive Linemen – fundamentals and techniques of stance, run blocking, pass protection, and combination blocks. Pass rushing skill, gap control and tackling
  • Running Backs – ball security, footwork, blocking, route- running, pre-snap reads, blitz pick-up and pass-catching skills
