"We develop versatility in every player. It's our mission to teach sound mental and physical skills that you can incorporate into your game."

Elite Academy for grades 9-12

ELITE ACADEMY is August 24-25, 2024
 -- see below for schedule

Doc's Elite Basketball Academy is for the serious high school player. Sessions are multifaceted and designed just like our college practices. Our coaches are extremely detail oriented and teach sound fundamentals and new notions that players will immediately integrate into their games. Teaching is grounded in understanding and rehearsing physical movements and mental game techniques. It's our goal to add versatility to your game.

Alumni of the Elite Academy have gone on to play at:

Cal Lutheran
Case Western
Colorado College
Colorado School of Mines
Eastern Nazarene
Johns Hopkins
La Verne
UC Santa Cruz
Wash U (MO)
Wheaton (IL)

We cannot provide on-campus housing and, therefore, kept our registration cost low so that you can schedule a hotel room. We recommend the Vagabond Inn. It's close to campus and affordable. If you choose to schedule another one on your own, there are a number of hotels in the immediate area. Please click here for accommodations.
