Generally, they're lightweight and easy to assemble, making them great for transporting to practices and games. Our list includes options that are suited for youth players, coaches of competitive teams, and personal trainers looking to enhance their drills.

Editor's Notes

November 12, 2020:

Football training targets are great for practicing at home or on the field. The Kapler Football Zone is good for backyards that might be limited in space. It's not as large as other options but still provides a sufficient backstop for blocking missed throws. The Gosports Football Toss, while not intended for team practice, is great for kids looking to both have fun and improve their accuracy.

Coaches of youth teams or personal trainers should consider the Kapler Football Zone, GoSports Vertical, Sklz Quickster 4-in-1, Forza Portable Net, Franklin Sports 8 Foot, and Powernet Pass Accuracy. These are highly portable and offer a good balance of price and function. Further, the Powernet Pass Accuracy and Sklz Quickster 4-in-1 double as a kick training net.

The Gosports Dummy Xtraman and Forza Fade Trainer are great for their specific purposes but not very versatile. The Gosports Dummy Xtraman is designed to simulate defensive coverage while the Forza Fade Trainer is only a target for fade passes. Both are valuable in practice but their lack of versatility might leave them as an option only considered by coaches and trainers.

The Sklz QB Trainer Pro has a steep price that might deter coaches in youth leagues but its function and durability make it great for high school, college, and maybe even professional-level teams. It's designed to withstand powerful throws, and it features three targets at the main receiving areas and a basket on top for fade passes. Further, it has wheels that allow it to roll around and an area for balls to collect at the bottom.

Special Honors

Rae Crowther Hanging Net This innovative target drapes down from the lower beam of a football goalpost. It has three sewn-in square pockets and five removable circular markers, which can be placed anywhere on the net. raecrowther.com

Rogers Athletic QB Combo At a steep price point, this option is best suited for college and professional teams. The height of the targets is adjustable and it has a drop-in net for fade passes. Further, it features four large wheels and tow hitches that allow several to connect, creating a train of targets. rogersathletic.com
