ELITEAM (as in Elite Team!)
ELITEAM Conditioning Camps are for young athletes who not only want to become stronger, faster and more confident, but also want to have fun! ELITEAM is unique in its way of of teaching these young athletes the three often overlooked concepts of Sports Physiology, Sports Psychology and Sports Nutrition. ELITEAM's goal is simple- to develop healthy, confident, "complete" athletes.
Through our "hands-on" approach, ELITEAM involves the athlete in the education process. Activities such as rock wall climbing, ropes courses and race situations will be used to teach focus, mental imagery skills and stress management. Mountain biking, running and ski specific exercises will be used to understand the body's physiological functions. And by baking bread, muffins and other healthy snacks, and nutritionally evaluating a variety of foods, the athletes discover how diet can affect their health and performance.
Ultimately, ELITEAM is more than a set of conditioning camps and team-building programs. It is a philosophy. It is a way of life where the focus is on fun, healthy living, learning, growing, setting goals and pushing your limits, both mentally and physically.
