WHAT DOES “ELITE” MEAN?
E : (Maximum) EFFORT. Our coaches focus on ensuring that attendees learn how to give maximum effort at their craft. Football, unlike other sports, asks you to give your most when you are physically and mentally at your max...it is physically, emotionally and mentally challenging unlike no other. Giving your maximum effort, including making the commitment and sacrifices required to succeed, is a topic our coaches stress each day.
L : LEADERSHIP. Playing football provides an opportunity for players to learn many skills—one of which is how to be a leader. As a great football coach once said, “Leaders aren't born, they are made. And they are made just like anything else, through hard work.” That is a quality we stress throughout our camp.
I : INTEGRITY. A key component of this camp is focused on the integrity required to be a student-athlete. The commitment that comes with that to themselves, their family, team and community.
T : TEAMWORK. The importance of teamwork is a major focus at our camp. Football requires 11 individuals to work as one on the field – on offense and defense. It also requires scout teams and others to ensure the overall success during the week. A critical aspect of camp is teaching what being part of a team is all about.
E : EXCELLENCE. Every position in football requires the proper techniques – from linemen to receivers. Our camp stresses the importance of basic skills required to excel at each position. Becoming fundamentally sound makes excellence attainable.
