Performance training equipment and programs to be integrated throughout FBU's elite nationwide camps
CARLSBAD, Dec 27, 2011 -SKLZ, the global leader in athletic performance and skill development training, has been named the official provider of performance training equipment for all Football University (FBU) camps nationwide. In addition to providing FBU with training tools, SKLZ, in partnership with Athletes' Performance, will directly impact the training curriculum at the camps.
"We are excited to partner with an organization that provides an environment for elite high school athletes to train with the most respected NFL coaches and trainers around," said Tom Quinn, president of SKLZ. "From the athletes to the coaches themselves, FBU camps represent the best of the best. We are excited to support them with SKLZ training tools supported by the world-class training programs developed along with Athletes' Performance."
Throughout 2012, over 11,000 of the nation's best high school football players will be invited to attend FBU's camps. Athletes at FBU camps take part in on-the-field training that focuses on developing and enhancing playmaking ability as well as skill development. Additionally, there are seminars that focus on leadership and position-specific instruction.
"To reach the next level, athletes need to be quicker, faster, and stronger than ever," said Rich McGuinness, President of Football University. "SKLZ has not only created the products to address the evolution of athletic training, but also, in working with Athletes' Performance, the content and programs to help athletes maximize their potential. This year, thanks to SKLZ, FBU participants will leave our camps with a new understanding of what it takes to train for football at an elite level."
To help them train after the camp is over, FBU participants will receive a special camp-only discount on SKLZ products. The partnership between the organizations includes FBU's TOP GUN camp, the culmination of the full season's football camps with the top 1,200 high school and youth selects from across the nation.
Football University (FBU) is an invitation-only football camp for elite level youth and high school (grades 6th-11th) players that focus on teaching technique and skill in a small group setting. Modeled after NFL mini-camps, FBU provides a complete football experience with 18 hours (over three days) of training and development-both on the field and off. Included are technique drills by position, classroom practicum including film study and video analysis, all under the direct supervision of former NFL players and coaches. Our training methods yield a lifetime of education and knowledge of football skills and techniques that help catapult our athletes to the next level. FBU was started by the founders of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl (USAAB), the nation's premier high school football game, and the Youth All-American Bowl. The U.S. Army All-American Bowl, played live on NBC, has helped launch the spectacular careers of Adrian Peterson, Mark Sanchez, Tim Tebow, Ndamukong Suh, Marcus Lattimore, Andrew Luck and many other college and NFL stars since its inception in 2001.
