Hundreds of students from across Southern California arrived in style with their teams via charter bus, ran out of the Rams tunnel, participated in Athletic benchmark testing on the field with Zybek sports, and had several celebrity and athletic speakers provided by our partner, AOC,  such as actor Noel G and former NFL player Spencer Tillman.

How does Elite Support Your Athlete?

Baseball Elite

"We don’t guess where a student athlete can play, we measure it!”

  • 5th, 7th and 9th graders go through our physical fitness test in accordance with the State of California physical education requirements. These tests include running, upper and lower body strength, and body mass index.
  • Students interested in taking their fitness to the next level begin with an athletic and agility assessment (benchmarks). Then the athlete chooses to customize a data-driven training and development program OR multi-levels of competition, both of which run in 60-day blocks.
  • Student athletes wanting specialized training or coaching connect with one of our vast number of supplemental community partners  to help them reach their goals.
  • Elite Educators, our school counselor, Peak Performance Athletic Lead and Sport Performance Coordinator help students compete for athletic scholarships if they want to continue their athletic career into college.

Elite uses a benchmark system to give student athletes a solid understanding of where they are and where they need to focus their efforts:

  • How you measure up – Sports testing indicates clearly where you rank and provides a clear and defined road map to the next level.
  • What to work on now – Testing should be done every 60-90 days to properly track your progression. Testing will identify strengths and weaknesses so athletes can adjust training using objective data, not guesswork.
  • What colleges match your skills – Benchmarks are the advantage to college exposure and lead to more NCAA Scholarships. Elite’s NCAA Advisor customizes 1-4 year plans for our college bound athletes.
