(Jr. Boys Team)
In looking at our schedule it is important that you understand the philosophy of Florida Elite. We believe in only playing in tournaments where our players can maximize the opportunities to be seen by college coaches or scouting services and media that can be helpful to them obtaining a scholarship to play at the next level. We do not believe in playing in useless tournaments where players could sustain an injury or over extend themselves with the number of games they play. Our preference is that players use the off live period times to develop greater skills and become better players through training. We will play in all five live period (NCAA certified) events, the Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions and a Florida Exposure event that will be covered by scouting services and media. Playing this schedule, we will play between 32 – 36 games (a complete college schedule). When you consider the amount of games these young men will also play with their high school team, we believe that this is enough. We are much more concerned with quality than quantity.
We will also promote our players that qualify and want to participate in individual skill or exposure camps. We have had throughout our history tremendous success in getting our players into these elite camps.
Our complete tournament schedule will be released in the near future.
