The Youth Colt
The Youth Colt provides the same benefits as the standard Colt, but is optimized for youth players (grades 1-5). Teaching the valuable skills of deflecting, chopping, and fighting through arms at the youth level prepares players to excel at higher levels. These skills are too often overlooked for how fundamental they are to almost every position, and any youth program who helps develop them at an early age is setting their players up to have a serious advantage going forward.
The Colt Blocking Pad for Child Athletes
Teaching Proper Football Technique at an Early Age for Increased Muscle Memory
Youth football coaches know better than anyone how immensely important it is to instill good technique in your players starting the minute they join the team. Quality repetitions are vital for your young players to build talent, but improper youth football training equipment yields bad fundamentals and poor gameplay performance. The Youth Colt™ is a specially-designed, child-size blocking pad with arms to train kids in blocking.
Give your team the best chance to win by teaching the basics of hand technique and leverage to your young players. Outdated football blocking shields without arms do little more than teach your kids to collide in pads. Our patented technology develops muscle memory, teaching your young players where to put their hands to win a leverage battle.
Revolutionary Football Blocking Pads for Training Your Pee-Wee Athletes Early
This football blocking pad for youth combines the flexibility of a movable blocking shield with the finesse of a football dummy with arms, with a twist. Instead of the arms being outwards and not really intruding on the player’s form of tackling, this coaching tool keeps the arms very close together in the chest area. This forces the player’s muscle memory to learn to tackle inside the chest every time. The mobility of the pad combined with the representative arms allows coaches to take an active role in demonstrating proper blocking or tackling form.
Football teams can use the Youth Colt to train: Punch, Rip, Club, Stab, Swim, Bull, Drive Block, Zone Block, Stalk, Reach, Shed, Fit, Scrape, Stack, Ball Disruption, Jam Releases, Heads-up Tackling.
Safety Equipment for Contact Sports Practice
The Youth Colt™ can be used for training kids in other contact sports like:
By using a Krausko blocking pad, kids get the chance to practice safe blocking and tackling techniques. A protective vinyl cover and Flex-foam encased body minimizes injuries when training. And if your team is short on players, the Youth Colt™ can act as a stand-in during practice.
