Creating Top Student Athletes

Program

Overview

Our football program is conducted over a three month period or basically the duration of a college football season. For our spring 2021 season, players report in late March and leave in late June. For our fall 2021 season, players will report in late August and leave mid November.

During their time with us, athletes will engage in a rigorous program to work on improving strength and conditioning levels, playing ability, ACT scores, time management, confidence and maturity. We also can help those that may need to improve the high school GPA.

We are only looking for good people

Midwest Prep, first and foremost, is looking for great character and hard working individuals. If you are a great student, you are motivated, respect authority, and make good decisions, Midwest Prep IS FOR YOU. We only want good people on our campus. Good people that simply need another year of development before college.
