Elite Athletes (EA) is a grassroots and youth basketball academy and training facility based in Antwerp, Belgium. EA was founded by Joerik Michiels and Olivier Goegetluck in 2010 with the goal of providing youth basketball players the chance to develop their games in a community-oriented environment; remaining with similar coaches, players and methods throughout the duration of their elementary and high-school careers. Unlike other academies, EA focused on specializing the roles of each coach and trainer; designating positions for shooting, strength and conditioning, tactical, and academic coaches, among many others. In doing so, Elite Athletes has remained innovative and detail-oriented to a degree that their competitors have not, be that locally in Europe, or globally. Today, EA’s Elite Academy encompasses 9 teams across 7 age divisions, frequently seeing their players compete for local post-secondary teams, North American colleges and universities, national programs and professional teams all around the world.

What to Expect at Camp?
Elite Athletes camps aren’t like every other camp. The goal is simple:
Make you a better player than you were when you started camp, but we want to do that through teaching, connection, and adding to your basketball “bag”.
At this camp we will be covering what we call the Super 6. It is the most essential things for players to be pros at.
Camp will be grouped based on skill level, so we can load/de-load based on necessary skill levels.
The focus is on developing players’ fundamentals to maximize their skill level of each of the Super Six skills.
Our goal is for you to reach your full potential as a player and give you the best tools to work on your gameElite Athletes
