Strong Center Youth Football and Cheer

Spring Skills Sessions

Registration for our Spring Skills Sessions are opening on SuperBowl Sunday.   

The Strong Center ( , BM Peterson Sports Performance ( and EJ's GEM ( conducts football skill clinics during March, April, and May each year.   The clinics will be led by Coaches Bryan Peterson and EJ Joseph with support by our Strong Center Youth Football & Cheer staff.

The focus of our six (6) clinics are the progression of football terminology, form, and position.  We believe it is important to understand the "why" in conjunction with the "how" in sports. 

These clinics are open to
all players ages 6-15 looking to improve their skills, NOT just those who have signed up to play with The Strong Center in the fall.  The Strong Center is committed to providing skills training for ALL positions at every clinic, with specific instruction at each position.
