Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) May 27, 2014
Carolina Elite Football (CEF) knows how difficult it is to pursue playing at the next level. As a way to help young football players, CEF has put together workshops for elementary through high school players to learn about developing skills and understanding recruiting practices. Not only do the athletes benefit from these programs but the coaches do as well. Coaches are invested in their profession by teaching these young men how to succeed not only in football but in other aspects of their life as well.
Carolina Elite Football is dedicated to its football players by helping build their character, values, and strengths: “We are advocates committed to excellence for players, coaches, and families involved with the sport of football in the state of North Carolina. We are devoted to assuring our players, coaches, parents and fans have equal or better resources and opportunities as it pertains to other programs around the United States. Together we will build a football CULTURE in North Carolina second to NONE,” (Carolina Elite Football, May 2014).
“I’m really excited with what we have to offer these young players,” states Coach Bob Winstead, founder of Carolina Elite Football. “We have the opportunity to create strong players as well as strong leaders who will go on to do great things. I can’t tell you how honored I am to be a mentor to these kids. We have a lot to offer here with summer camps and track-out programs, one-day intensity camps, and even 7 on 7 leagues, which have become an encouraged activity throughout the United States.” The 7 on 7 Football League has become more prevalent in recent years and occurs in the football off-season. The League is a non contact way to play football while still being fun and competitive. If young athletes feel they want more practice year-round, this is a great way for them to practice passing and catching along with learning both offense and defense positions.
CEF and Players2Pros work in conjunction with the High School Player Development Program (HSPD) to address “challenges facing high school football programs across the country focusing primarily on underserved communities. HSPD serves as a free resource for both high school player and coaches. The program emphasizes safety and concussion awareness, character development and life skills, and football fundamentals.” (Players2Pros, May 21, 2014)
“Football has often been just a one season sport. This doesn’t leave a lot of time for teams to learn valuable skills, which are necessary if they want to improve both as a team and as individuals. These camps and especially the 7 on 7 leagues offer a lot of exposure for high school students looking at scholarships and recruiting opportunities for college. Don’t cave in to laziness this summer. Play some football!” says Coach Winstead.
