Elevation suspended all remaining tournaments in 2020 following the COVID shut down. Teams met online with their coaches and the club scheduled coaching sessions during this period. As a club we were very busy with online clinics, practices, and challenges . As soon as we were allowed back in the gym we offered all of our players free private lessons for 3 weeks before starting Club Prep, an age group dictated skills training module for advanced players. We saw a very motivated and energetic group! Leaving the summer we are very excited about tryouts (tentatively scheduled for Halloween weekend) and we're looking forward to the time when we can compete with other clubs!
16 of our 24 Elevation teams are ranked in the top 5 in their OVR division! That's the most of any club and includes a #1 ranking in 4 of the 8 National Divisions in Ohio!
