Monroe-Woodbury football coach Pat D'Aliso is the director of football operations for the newly created Top Gun Instructional Football academy.

The business will operate out of the Rock Sports Park in Chester, once that facility is completed. For now, it is using the Frozen Ropes Training Center in Chester.

The program will offer year-round football training, incorporating biomechanics, sports psychology, visual skills, as well as strength and conditioning. Classes are beginning for children as young as 5, with more advanced training for older kids.

"Every other sport is training all year locally and football is being left out," D'Aliso said. "This is way to help our section's programs now, and get kids good teaching at a younger age."

D'Aliso plans to use only coaches with local ties. The staff is comprised of Warwick head coach James Sciarra, Minisink Valley head coach Kevin Gallagher and Monroe-Woodbury assistants Bernie Connolly, Jim Hintze and Mike Connolly.

Scarsdale assistant Devin Hoover, a former Washingtonville head coach and Monroe-Woodbury program assistant, completes the staff.
