850 Elite Skills Training Program
We are a 501 (c) 3 charitable organization dedicated to empowering the families of Northwest Florida through skills development, fitness, nutrition, and life coaching for stress management. All income goes to club maintenance, coaches fees, and equipment. Any excess income goes into a scholarship fund for qualifying players.
Our Coaches have more combined experience than any other club in the area. Click here to see why:
We use the Gold Medal Squared system to teach consistent skills across all age levels. GMS is the same system used by the US Olympic Team and the US National Team.
Growth Mindset was developed by Stanford professor, Carol Dweck, and it’s the foundation of how we coach, both on and off the court. Growth Mindset focuses on Process not Results. We are in charge of the process, not the results.
If winning is your only goal, then you never change or grow…and you create stressed out players, because no team at any level wins ALL the time.
We have had multiple medals in our first two seasons (including: 18 Blue won 2017 Lil’ Big South in Atlanta and 15 Blue won 2017Gulf Coast Regionals), but that’s not the point. Our goal is to make your player the strongest, most skilled, mentally composed person they can be, and winning just happens to be a by-product of that goal.
