Learn the Secrets of the Trade Inside the Defensive Line Academy

What Every DL Coach Needs

Everything in the DL Academy has one purpose: to support you in every way needed to be the very best DL coach that you can be.

There are tons of different ways to coach and every situation is unique…

But what’s not unique are the keys to success:

  • thorough organization
  • knowing your players’ strengths and weaknesses
  • and a proper teaching progression

The DL Academy shows you how to get all that done with real life tips and tricks from the experts.

Here’s what’s included:

  • 2 hours of content showing you precisely how to plan your entire teaching progression and organization of your DL
  • 4 hours of content giving you insight on how to decide on personnel, drill time, and other useful tips
  • Free digital DL Workbook – editable and printable 
  • Lifetime access! And we’ll continue to add more content based on your feedback and needs.

Any time I have downloaded a resource from Coach Simpson’s site it has been instant and error free. Thankful for all the time poured into these resources and packaging them in a way that busy coaches can efficiently use.
