Camp: Eliteam Conditioning Camps
Eliteam Conditioning Camps
Overview: ELITEAM Conditioning camps are specifically designed for young athletes (ages 8-14). ELITEAM’s unique approach teaches these young athletes the importance of sports physiology, sports psychology and sports nutrition. In its 23rd year, ELITEAM is high energy with non-stop action and is all about pushing limits, learning new skills and having fun! ELITEAM ‘s goal is simple… to develop healthy, confident and “complete” athletes.
Through its “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. 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.

Every afternoon, the athletes will hear directly from a U.S. Ski Team guest speaker to learn about a variety of topics, covering the target areas of Sports Physiology, Sports Psychology and Sports Nutrition. ELITEAM will also use the many recreational fields and trails in and around Park City. All campers will be housed at the National Ability Center’s Lodge.

ELITEAM utilizes the academy’s gymnasium, soccer fields, and ropes courses, along with the Mad River Valley’s extensive trails, fields and mountains for training and activities.
