NFA coming to Canada

Will Finch NFA Canada product

National Football Academies is crossing the border.
On August 3-4, NFA will be making its first-ever trip to Canada. Many players are expected to attend the offensive skills camp, which will offer intensive training for quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers and offensive linemen.
JC Boice is going to run the Regional Development football camp, which will be held at Goudy Field (Glen Lake Elementary) in Victoria, British Columbia. Certified NFA football coaches from the United States are also making the trip.
In addition to serving as the Director of Operations for NFA, Coach Boice has worked with promising young quarterbacks for nearly 10 years and is an expert in developing throwing mechanics.
Coach Boice recently relocated from the Seattle area to British Columbia, and he is fired up about NFA’s expansion into Canada.
“Having moved to Canada, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how athletic and determined Canadian football players are,” Coach Boice said. “I’ve been equally impressed with Canadian coaches and their hunger for better, more advanced football knowledge. I’m very excited to be able to bring NFA’s elite program to Canada.”
The Vancouver Canucks play in the National Hockey League, a sport that is wildly popular in British Columbia and the rest of Canada as well.
But football continues growing in popularity north of the border, and several standout Canadian players have enhanced their skills with the help of NFA.
When he was based in Seattle, Coach Boice trained numerous Canadian athletes, including quarterbacks Will Finch and Trey Wheeler.
Finch led his high school, (Nelson, Ontario), to a 12-0 record last season. The highlight of the year came in the final game, when Finch and Nelson H.S. beat St. Paul-Niagara Falls 37-0 in the Golden Horseshoe Bowl at Toronto’s Rogers Centre.
Earlier this summer, Finch quarterbacked Canada in the IFAF Under-19 World Championships held in Austin, Texas.
In addition to Finch, Coach Boice trained QB Trey Wheeler for six-plus years in NFA.
Wheeler is heading into his sophomore season at Simon Fraser University. As a freshman, he passed for 1,451 yards and 9 touchdowns.
Josh Tipton is an up-and-coming Canadian quarterback that will be in Victoria for the NFA camp.
Coach Boice is looking forward to uncovering other talented offensive players and helping them develop.
“It’s going to be a great camp,” Coach Boice said. “It is the ideal camp for a serious tune-up heading into your season. We emphasize football development and training for players and coaches. And we build better coaches and players with self-corrections, a systematic approach and strong command of biomechanics yielding measurable results in all players.”
