Sound Mind



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:

  • Personal Branding. Personal branding is essentially the ongoing process of establishing a prescribed image or impression in the mind of others about an individual, group or organization.
  • Social Media 101. Ten years ago, athletes built influence through local appearances, media interviews, endorsements and out-performing their competition. Interactions with sports fans were reserved for autograph sessions or the occasional dinner interruption. Social Media has changed everything. The good, bad and ugly about social media.
  • STD Awareness. Providing teen health education awareness utilizing proven evidence-based comprehensive sexual health education that encourages abstinence and risk reduction behaviors Lesson Plans & Educational Material about STD Prevention and Treatment.
  • Alcohol & Drug Awareness. Designed to educate campers about substance abuse through an engaging presentation meant to challenge their behavior toward drugs and alcohol.


The chalk talk sessions allows College Coaches to provide classroom instruction on each position specific area of football.

  • Offensive Line
  • Defensive Line
  • Wide Receivers
  • Running Backs
  • Quarterbacks
  • Defensive Backs
  • Linebackers

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.
