Message from Ganon

Welcome to our academy, it is an honor to provide this type of development to players all over the World. Everything that I have ever done as a coach and trainer has led me to this point. This academy is a true gift from God and we spend every hour of the day making this program the best it can be for players. Without question we provide the best resources to take the players mind, body, and spirit to a place where they have never been before. We are not as concerned with the players winning trophies, but we are more concerned about developing living trophies. We want players to act as winners and leaders everyday for the rest of their lives. We will be very demanding and hold the players accountable for everything, with our goal of moving them onto college and most importantly to prepare them for the game of life. We are Elev/8 basketball!

God Bless,
