We support local teams, coaches, and leagues at all levels of play with world-class training, technology, and administrative services. Organizations that are powered by EL1 are committed to putting child development, professional education, and equal opportunity at the forefront of youth sports.
While we value the hard work and commitment of volunteer coaches and managers, we believe they need to be supported by experts who have experience at the highest levels of sport.
The science and stats are clear. When we push our children to focus too closely on one sport too early, they suffer. Single sport athletes are significantly more likely to quit and are 83% more likely to experience injury.
Foundational fundamentals have gotten lost in the shuffle of rankings and stats. In baseball for example, college coaches are seeing an increasing number of players that can hit home run after home run but...."They can’t play catch"
About 70% of kids in the United States stop playing organized sports by the age of 13 because “it’s just not fun anymore.”We need to reconnect youth sports back to the magic of play.
As youth sports has become increasingly commercialized, fees have spun out of control. 87% of parents are stressed by youth sports costs, 47% allocate 10 - 25% of their annual budgets to kids’ sports, and 41% of parents are dipping into their life savings to pay for their child’s sports programs.
90% of the youth sports industry is focused on the less than 3% of athletes that will reach the college level. We believe that regardless of whether your child is going pro or not, they deserve high quality instruction and equal opportunity to reach their potential.
Sport specific skills
(physical and mental)
Your children can experience our transformational programs 1 on 1, by joining our small group classes, or by signing up with their existing team.
E|L1's highly trained educators can enhance your existing coaching program, running practices and skill building alongside you so that you can focus less on process and more on your players.
We've developed a cost-effective, results oriented model for league management that allows local league administrators to maintain autonomy while elevating their organization’s programming and better serving their parents and players.
