Our two oldest sons have worked with Matt Biermann through their Junior Football and High School years, and have continued to work with the Elite Football Academy into their college careers. The coaching and instruction they have received throughout the past 8 years has had a tremendous impact on their development as Quarterbacks. Stressing both the Physical and Mental preparation for the game of football has given our sons a definite competitive edge. With the focus on the fundamentals of the QB position, whether it is the proper technique of throwing, footwork, ball placement, rush avoidance, etc. we know that they are always well prepared.
The training they have received has translated very well to the state and national levels, with our oldest son recognized as the #1 Pro-Style Quarterback in the nation in 2008, and our middle son rated as the #1 Quarterback in the state of Missouri for the class of 2010. We cannot thank Matt and his entire staff enough for their guidance and coaching in developing the potential of our sons.

Let me say the coaching you have put into your QB's really shows! The tape and drills were excellent. Keep up the great work!

The Elite Football Academy staff is much more than just coaches and trainers. They truly care about the young men that they work with both on and off the football field. The staff at EFA also provides their expertise and many of years of experience to help educate the youth coaches of the St. Louis metro area. The EFA is truly making a positive impact on the game!
Several years ago when my son, Dalton Demos, was in the 6th grade, he expressed a desire to play football. He wanted to play quarterback and while I played Division I Football many years ago, I knew very little about playing that position so I searched the St. Louis area for a qualified and quality QB coach. I then learned of Matt Biermann's Elite Football Academy based in Chesterfield and enrolled my son in their QB Training Program. For over 6+ years, my son Dalton has been coached in all the skills that a QB must have to reach a high level of success.
Because of Matt's and the programs encouraging directions, Dalton has become one of the best quarterbacks in the Nation and has led his high school team, CBC, to an undefeated season, a National High School top 15 ranking and a final berth in the Missouri's State Football Championship game in November 2011.
Not only did Matt teach Dalton the fundamentals and technical skills of quarterbacking, he also taught him many of the leadership skills that are essential to being a successful player.Several D1 colleges have expressed high interest in recruiting Dalton into their football programs. Illinois, Vanderbilt, Indiana, Northwestern, Ole Miss as well as many other smaller schools are currently recruiting him.
Regardless of what college Dalton eventually goes to, he and I will always be extremely grateful for Matt Biermann and his Elite Football Academy for making Dalton the best quarterback that he can be.

Elite Football is more than men coaching football. The experts at Elite are teachers and motivators that use their skill in teaching the fundamentals of football to augment the coaching of High School and Youth football players. Many of our CFA teams have utilized the Elite Football staff, with every coach coming away extremely pleased with the results for their players. I consider the staff at Elite a vital component in helping the players and coaches in the CFA to experience success on the field.

My name is John W. Tabash. As a former high school and college football player,I realize the importance of sound teaching fundamentals and technique. My son,John,began at Elite Football Academy at age 15. He has been instructed in sound fundamentals of rush and pass blocking for an offensive lineman. He has also had the unique opportunity to have many sessions of "1 on 1" work against other high school, collegiate, and professional defensive lineman. Therefore, he is getting the best of not only learning the fundamentals and techniques but then practicing those techniques against other live competition.
The 3 years of working with Elite Football has improved my sons football ability as well as self-confidence to perform on the football field. He has definitely had a distinct advantage over his competition with his Elite Football background.
I highly recommend Elite Football Academy to any young football player who wants to improve his skills and learn the sound fundamental techniques of blocking,tackling,running,catching, and passing. The highly qualified staff are all former players who know and understand what it takes to be successful on the field and who work well with the children and make it a fun experience.

Our son Andrew has been attending Elite Football Academy since his freshman year. We found Elite by accident online and asked our son if he wanted to try the small group session to see what he thought of it. My husband and I both played a college sport and were a bit skeptical, but after the first session we were instant believers. We only wished that we had found them sooner!
Matt and his staff are professional and knowledgeable in all areas of the game. I know that the staff not only cares about my son as a football player, but as an individual. Elite has also given Andrew the opportunity to work out and become aquatinted with some of the better players in the St. Louis area. Elite has given our son the skill set and confidence to play at the next level. More importantly we believe that Elite will have an impression on our son long after he is done playing football. Thanks to Matt and all his staff!!!

My son has attended one of Matt's camps and one of the small group sessions that Elite provides the players. My son learned quite a bit from the camp and the group session. The coaches were great with the kids and are very qualified. If you are looking for more and better training for your football player Matt and Elite is the place to be!

I just wanted to say thanks for a great clinic at Rams Park. The Elite Football Academy group was definitely the highlight of the day for myself and our other Coach. I can tell you guys are the real deal and are not there just to pump up your own program but want to get the athletes to a new level of training. I have only been coaching football for 4 years but I am always looking for ideas and training techniques that build upon each players natural ability and for those in little league coaching like myself developing a program that will bring the weaker players to be stronger/quicker.. It was great seeing your demonstrations and gathering some tips for coaching these guys in the greatest game ever !!!!

I would like to thank you and your staff for providing a very informative session to us today! I have played and been around football all my life and as easy as it can be to think we know everything, your group demonstrated some very specific things that I realize I can be doing a better job at.
