/// About SportscapersU King Classic Youth Football Tournament
Sportscapers is based in Houston, Texas. Our sports training division, Sportscapers University, is committed to building a better student athlete. We offer skills and development programs for all of the major sports, specializing in basketball, football and baseball.
Sportscapers University assists prep and youth athletes in improving their skills through instruction in the fundamentals of their respective sports. Participants in our camps enhance their abilities and increase their confidence in playing their individual positions. Under the guidance of our staff of well known area coaches and community leaders, the camps are rigorous yet fun.
We conduct our camp events in different regions of the Houston metropolitan area to make these more accessible to athletes and their families. We have the community broken into eight geographical areas; North Houston, South Houston, Cy-Fair, Pearland, Fort Bend County, Katy, Tomball, Montgomery County and Humble-Kingwood. In each of these areas we have specially selected individuals who coordinate our programs.
Sportscapers University offers more than on-site sports instruction. We also have developed an online database of sports strategy and history to enhance the experience for students and to provide coaches and parents with a source of knowledge that will enable them to become stronger in their abilities to influence the development of young athletes. Full membership in Sportscapers University allows access to this database.
Perhaps most importantly, Sportscapers University is dedicated to placing a special emphasis on the place of academics in the life of the student athlete. The need for balance between academics and athletics and the critical understanding of the step-by-step development of successful student athletes is a priority for our organization. It is what sets Sportscapers apart from similar organizations.
/// A Special Note To Parents and Coaches
Sports involves speed, agility, endurance, strength and thought. While some "student-athletes" are naturally gifted in one or more of these areas, to perfect the art of playing a position, a superior athlete is developed over long hours and years of intense work and preparation. Even a professional athlete is a work in progress. To truly develop a competitive advantage, the learning and conditioning processes must never stop.
Insights into the proper techniques and conditioning evolve from generation to generation. And, the purveyors of this wisdom in each generation are the coaches. From the coaching staffs in youth leagues, colleges, middle schools and high schools to mothers and fathers who stay involved in teaching the fundamentals of the game to neighborhood children, this is a community of vast knowledge. These concerned individuals, who have made it a life’s calling, are those we enlist to assist us. Unlike other similar organizations, we are not as concerned with the general public’s ability to recognize the names of our staff as we are with the body of knowledge that our staff can impart to the student athletes.
Sportscapers University offers more than sports instruction and training. We are dedicated to placing a special emphasis on the place of academics in the life of the student athlete. The need for balance between academics and athletics and the critical understanding of the step-by-step development of successful student athletes is a priority for our organization. We are concerned with each student understanding from the start that, without appropriate attention to academic requirements, their dreams will never be realized inside or outside of sports. We choose our staff members with this commitment as a prerequisite. This is what sets Sportscapers apart from similar organizations.
