The Life Skills component of the “SMSB” Academy is critically important to Student-Athlete development. Life Skills are the areas outside of the classroom and playing field that either enhance or derail the student-athletes development and progress in high school and college. These sessions are led by the SMSB staff and other guest speakers along with college coaches.
Life Skills sessions include but are not limited to:
The chalk talk sessions allows College Coaches to provide classroom instruction on each position specific area of football.
Every camper is assigned a position group where college coaches give a 30 minute presentation on “how to play the position”, and “what instruction will be provided during the camp.” During the session campers review college game and practice film cut-ups along with drill tapes.
Campers also receive a “College Coach Tip Sheet”, which contains helpful hints on playing the position. After the Chalk Talk & Film Session campers apply what was learned in the film session on the field.
While Sound Mind Sound Body is a non-contact camp, we continue in our efforts to educate our participants and provide the latest information on safety. In light of developing concussion research, an overview of rule changes regarding practice and concussion prevention has been incorporated in our program.
A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury, or TBI, caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head that can change the way your brain normally works. Concussions can also occur from a fall or a blow to the body that causes the head and brain to move quickly back and forth.
