The young, aspiring, football players of Ottawa had the opportunity this year to learn, develop and improve their skills throughout the winter months. Elite Performance Academy was proud to bring a unique opportunity to minor football across the city. We recruited the finest, local, coaching staff, made up of experienced professional CFL players, University level and Certified Football Canada Coaches. Collectively, the experience and knowledge of the ELITE FOOTBALL ACADEMY COACHING STAFF is second to none:
- 54 years of CFL playing experience
- 2 Grey Cup Championships
- 1 Grey Cup Most Outstanding Canadian Award
- 1 East Division Most Outstanding Canadian Award nomination
- 3 Big East NCAA Conference Championships
- 4 CIS All-Stars
- 3 CIS Team MVPs
- 1 Hec Crighton Nomination
- 1 CJFL Career Rushing Record
- 30+ years coaching CIS, CJFL, high school, and minor football
- the current Technical Director of Football Canada
Together, we designed an off-season program like no other. The success of the camp was evident as our athletes improved tremendously from week to week. Our innovative program design created a competitive environment for the tough O- and D-Line to work on their physical techniques, while the Wide Receivers and Defensive Backs could refine their sweet feet and hand skills. The Running Backs and Linebackers focused on agility & explosion, and the ability to become more knowledgeable in the trenches. In fact, the technical skill of our athletes reached such a high level that Football Canada came to film during some of our drills to use as teaching tools.
These young men had a great 12 weeks of preparation at the Elite Football Academy Training Camp and are already reaping the rewards of their hard work during recent All-Star Games and pre-season OVFL practices. We are looking forward to these athletes having outstanding seasons this summer.
Make sure you don't miss out on registering for Elite Football Academy 2013! It promises to be bigger and better in every way, truly helping the athletes reach the next level in their football development.
