What Our Clients Say

Beginning in the summer of 2018, our son, Darren Sanchez, worked with Coach Carl Bruere (quarterback coach) through the SWAT program.  Our experience with him was wonderful!  Darren learned so many valuable skills with Coach Carl, such as basic throwing mechanics and drills, which helped him fine-tune his throwing motion.  He also worked on Darren’s footwork, timing, strength, flexibility, awareness and vision.  Our sons’ knowledge of the quarterback position has vastly improved as a result.  Darren is so much more confident knowing that the hard work he’s done with Coach Carl has transferred into actual games.   Lastly, I would like to add that in addition to being a great coach, Carl truly cares about the kids and goes above and beyond what we expected.  He would check on Darren the night before a game and wish him good luck and would always ask about how his games went at the beginning of his next lesson.  We will definitely be back in the spring to have our son continue to work with Coach Carl.  We highly recommend the SWAT program and Coach Carl.

Coach B,
 
Prior to meeting you I thought Braden was a pretty good football player. He had only played tackle for a year and had played flag football for 5 years. 
 
I will never forget that first practice….I thought to myself how much Braden really didn’t know …..moreover, couldn’t do. Rather than focusing on the negative, you encouraged him throughout the entire practice. I’ve learned you weren’t just being nice…you coach by focusing on the positive. 
 
Your coaching and mentoring have taken Braden to an entire different level. Not only physically, mentally. His skill gets better each day and he loves it! He feels better about his ability to “be athletic” and his self-confidence has improved…..I can’t thank you enough! You, your hand-picked assistant coaches, are honestly the best!!! Thank you!!Wendy
My 12-year-old son Brandon began quarterback instruction with Coach Bruere in the Summer of 2016.  He has been with him every week since.  Coach Bruere provides an environment to obtain maximum effort and give the highest quality instruction possible.  Coach Bruere has set the foundation for my son’s throwing mechanics and footwork to improve with every instruction.  He focuses on the fundamentals and leadership required for the quarterback position.  He always has my son’s future success and best interest on and off the field in mind.  Coach Bruere’s attention to detail, passion, and work ethic has made my son one of the best youth quarterbacks in the league.Bryan O.
