AP Football Developmental and Evaluation Period


AP Football will hold weekend and holiday indoor 7v7 developmental evaluation tournaments in order to create a club prospect list and to continue advancement of all area football players.

Developmental tournaments are good for any football player looking to improve on their skill and get more live reps in the off-season!

The development tournaments consist of 45 minutes of individual skill work with our elite coaching staff before we will split the talent up evenly and play 7v7 tournaments in order to maximize reps and competition for the kids. In all of our tournaments and leagues, our coaches will be coaching the kids on fundamental route and coverage concepts the entire time.

March and Beyond

At the beginning of March, we will make our two teams of 24 players at each age level. One team will be a full travel and one team will be partial travel for each age group in order to fit any budget and time schedule. The NFA will release its national schedule in December and a final schedule and cost for the team will be made then.
