"Rise Above" is an elite level camp designed to challenge the highest level players in the state of Arkansas. Sessions will run for 75 minutes and will take place during the offseason. Our goal is to work with small groups delivering high intensity, quality technical training to all involved. We believe that training players at a similar level of ability will push each other to bring out the competitive edge. Players are much more likely to work harder, therefore getting more out of the session. During the practice sessions, the staff will focus on refining a wide variety of technical aspects of the game in a highly focused and detailed environment.
The purpose of Arkansas Rising is about players playing at the appropriate level to enhance their individual player development instead of just forming teams. We believe that the overall level of training will improve, therefore creating a more challenging playing environment for each player, regardless of their placement within the club. Research shows that when a player is placed at the appropriate level, their opportunity for growth will 'rise'. This partnership expands our talent and the depth created will lead to more accurate player placement thus allowing more room for individual players to grow from within the organization.
