"The camps Tyler does every summer for AJF are outstanding! Our kids have a great time, learn to work hard, & come away much better players from a technical and mental aspect" Bill Morris- President, Ankeny Jr. Football
"Hand's down the best football camp we have attended. Tyler is great and does an amazing job working with the kids on all aspects of the game. Looking forward to attending again in the summer!" -Ryan Miller, Des Moines
"My sons participated in the Fundamental Camp in Walnut. Coach Blum did an amazing job. Not only was he a great teacher, he was very patient with the younger boys. My boys reported they had a lot of fun and learned a lot about football. As a flag football coach, I am planning on using some of those drills in my practice this fall." -Bryan Weidner, Minden
"Three things come to mind as both a parent and as someone who has coached youth flag football through small college football. The first aspect is the organization and communication. Practice sessions were very organized and there was little to no down time. Athletes were able to get a large number of reps in drills. Emails to the parents about schedule changes were also helpful.
The second thing was the variety of drills. Players worked on drills applicable to most if not all positions. The third component was the positive coaching style. Tyler does a really good job of not letting mistakes slide, but still being positive and making the kid feel good while correcting the mistake."
"The camp was a rewarding experience and my son learned some skills he can actually use to take with him during the next playing season."
"I love the enthusiasm and passion Tyler has for coaching! His guidance is remarkable!"
"I likes Tyler's approach with the kids. Always positive. My son came home with new techniques and loved every minute of the camp."
"He was excited to go every week! Your communication was prompt. Your camp always ran on time. Good coaching--positive and helpful."
"My son really learned a lot about technique and footwork. He got a ton of drill work and individual coaching from Coach Blum."
"Being a high school football coach for the last 30 years I can say that the quality coaching my son has recieved with Tyler is second to none. I couldn't be more pleased with his development the past two years since he has been attending Tyler's camp. Tyler has that special bond with the kids that inspires them to want to get better and he is a teacher on the field not just a coach. I will continue to send my son to Tyler's camps as I know this will further his development as a football player, athlete, and a leader."
"My son's favorite drills at the camp were the quarterback drills and the tackling drills. As an 8 year old he is probably too young to appreciate the things that a parent does, but he enjoyed the overall experience."
"My son liked the team building skills & interacting with great coaching staff!"
"My son really liked the new drills that he had never done before!"
"Wyatt loved being able to compete especially with the older kids. Knowing he can compete with older kids gives him that extra edge once his season started."
"He liked that it was specific to linemen. Most camps play 7 on 7 or skill position drills.. this was the first time he really got to work on drill specifically for his position."
