“I remember my epiphany that would become The Quarterback Academy. A drive to mentor, teach and develop new generations of quarterbacks to do better, decide faster, and reach higher. A mission to instill that special balance of mind, heart, spirit, confidence and leadership to step up when their moment comes.” – Darin Slack, QBA Founder
NFA’s “The Duel” National Quarterback Competition has quickly become a premier National event!
For the past 10 years, this NFA weekend brings the best of NFA and all their families together to celebrate the start of the Football season, the end of all the preparation, and the chance to show out on the big stage!
The Duel provides strong college recruiting, leadership training, and nutrition seminars, and all The Duel finalists get a personal write-up feature in our QB Blog for substantial national exposure. A number of our past Duel Competitors are now playing major college football.

QB Next is NFA’s 3rd- 6th grade youth quarterback training experience that occurs at each of our Immersion events. We maintain age-appropriate expectations and sensitivity to maturity levels, while building a rock-solid foundation in quarterback fundamentals that fosters peak performance for growth.
Youth Quarterbacks see measurable results through our sequential learning and application of self-correction. Our QB Next program is an age-monitored, fun, and accelerated partnership with our dedicated coaches who carefully monitor the training progression alongside the older quarterbacks.

Nothing more clearly shows the proven family culture of NFA than our College Mentor Program. We invite former NFA QBs who’ve gone on to play College Football to give back by coaching with us at our National QB Immersion and Regional training events.
These select, servant leaders have the physical tools, mental capacity, self-discipline and work ethic to earn their opportunity to play at next level and we want to expose our developing quarterbacks to what it really takes to prepare for greatness.
Their impact on the next generation of NFA quarterbacks is profound. We also provide the NFA College Mentor QBs access to advanced training from our NFA Senior Quarterback Coaches while they serve.
