CAMP OBJECTIVE: The Mohawk Valley Elite Skills Academy is an intense, no-nonsense learning experience for boys & girls entering grades 4 – 12. This camp is designed for the athlete who spends time thinking about improving and reaching another level of performance. This camp is NOT for the casual player. It will be an intense and rewarding learning experience that will include skill development, improvement in leadership and communication skills and will show you ways to make your team better, both in practice and in games. The Skills Academy is designed to teach players to play intelligently, to be true leaders during games, in practice, and in everyday life. Unique drills and game situations will be used to build physical and mental habits that lead to smart, effective play.
