Parent Development Seminar Component It is imperative that the parents are educated on all the factors that go into being a student athlete and what it takes to be successful at the highest level. NIKE Elite 150 has developed a one of a kind program for the parent! In a partnership with the NSCAA (National Soccer Coaches Association of America) upon check in and after the opening ceremony parents are invited, at NO ADDITIONAL COST, to attend a three hour educational event.

• How to analyze a game from watching and on video through “Match Analysis Training.”
