I've worked with Coach Marean at the last 2 NYS Elite Athletics football camps & I will say that this camp is a great experience & learning opportunity that players should absolutely take advantage of. Coach Marean is definitely one of the good guys in the area that is trying to give our young players quality with everything he does. I will always be by his side in helping our players get better. NYS Elite Athletics is a top notch organization that puts quality first & that's what our kids deserve.

"I loved the 7on7 season.  It was great to work on my football skills with my teammates in an organized league in the offseason.  I play multiple sports and the Sunday morning schedule was perfect for my schedule.  I really liked playing 7on7 and working on team's passing game."

"The 1st Annual NYS Elite Athletics 7on7 season was a great experience for the players, coaches, and parents.  Everyone commented on how well it was conducted and the fun the boys had playing.  It was an invaluable offseason event for the youth players and coaches to be able to organize and play 7on7.  We plan to be back next year.  Thanks for all the hard work by your group to do this for our children."  - 
Steve D'Anna, HFL Youth Coach and parent


"The experience of the NYS Elite Athletics was second to none. Coach Marean instilled not only football knowledge but character building with our boys. The entire coaching staff was outstanding. I ask my son Brock Brazie at every camp what he learned and leaving this camp he gave me a list. As a dad that's all I needed to know that this camp was amazing".   David Brazie-Parent 


"I couldn't be more happy about what my son experienced. He learned so much about football in that short amount of time. Price was right and what a line up of coaches! It doesn't get any better!"

“This was a great opportunity for my son to practice both offense and defense skills in the offseason. He had a lot of fun competing against such quality competition. This league is a great development opportunity for youth football in the area.” 
– Jan Maneti, parent and youth football coach

"It was a ton of fun and everyone learned a lot.  This is the first time I have ever seen this done at this level.  It will be noticed in the fall that the kids who played every Sunday, will be far ahead of the kids that did not.  The atmosphere was positive and all the kids learned the right way on how to play the passing game.  This Is a great idea, not too short, not too long.  Dave, thanks for the leadership in your role, you are a tremendous teacher and coach." 
-Peter McCabe, High School Football Official

"Had the pleasure to speak at Dave Marean’s football camp at Wayne High School. Before I spoke, I watched the camp and was very impressed with Dave Marean’s organization and leadership skills. In observing Dave coach his players in drills, I witnessed his outstanding ability to teach football techniques  as well as his strong passion for the game of football. What was most impressive about Dave was his relationship with his players. His team was well disciplined and you could feel how much Dave cared about each player. His program had a wonderful culture! The greatest compliment I can give Dave is that it would have been an honor to have my son play on Dave’s team. I would highly recommend that any player attend Dave’s camp and be part of a special program."
