EL1 IS COMMITTED TO TRANSFORMING ATHLETES, FAMILIES, AND COMMUNITIES THROUGH SPORT…
Founded in 2010, we are a national sports training company created by athletes, coaches, and educators who believe in the transformative power of sport to make a difference in people’s lives both on and off the field. We provide expert instruction and a full suite of administrative solutions in the service of athletes, teams, organizations, tournaments, and events.
In March of 2022, EL1 announced a deal with Major League Baseball and is now the proud youth baseball and softball training partner of MLB.
Through our 9 facilities and numerous community programs, we use a combination of teaching, technique, and technology to instruct and educate young athletes, and to support organizations of all sizes with administrative functions ranging from roster management to accounting to marketing. Our work makes sports work better.
For athletes (and their families) – from those eyeing college recruitment or pro ball all the way down to those picking up a bat for the first time – we have programs, lessons, camps, clinics and tournaments to help throughout their journey in sport.
For facility owners as well as organization, team, league, and tournament operators, we offer a unique “operating system” of collaboration and support (back of house and on the field) to help you make sports work better. This includes credible information, knowledge, experience from professionals with proven track records, as well as access to capital, a robust brand and network, and infrastructure.
