The MVP is the first ever self-righting (will stand right back up) mobile training dummy. Controlled with a remote, and powered by a motor, this innovative device can move at the speed of your opponent (~5 second 40-yard dash), while weighing over 140 pounds.
By simulating human motion, the MVP allows players to practice tackling, cutting around, throwing at, and blocking a mobile target.
We are developing a suite of MVPs that can be used for football, rugby, on grass and on turf, and for all ages and abilities.
Some sample drills for many positions:
QB: Simulate a pass rush from two DEs, passing pocket mobility drills, run routes and catch ball in “Catch Net”
RB: Simulate a blitzing linebacker to block, avoid MVP when hitting the hole
WR: Release and stack, mirror drill to simulate blocking a DB/LB, distraction drill, run route against MVP (swim/big arm)
OL: Practice cut blocking on screen pass, DE/DT pass rush, 1 on 1’s against DL with MVP as the QB
DL: Simulate the QB in pocket, OL taking his pass set
LB: Angle tackling drills, RB in Oklahoma tackling drill, open field tackling
DB: Two MVPs simulate a route combination, angle tackling drills, open field tackling, pursuit angles
Athlete: Agility training, endurance running, pacer
There are countless potential uses for MVP. Ask us if you’d like any more suggestions. We are currently developing an “on-ramp” video that demonstrates the most effective uses.
If you have thought of your own creative uses and drills for the MVP we would love to hear them!
The Mobile Virtual Player has two patents pending.
