About Us

       Football has been a big part of my life since I ​​
was old enough to walk. Whether I was playing  at the youth level, high school or at the college level, football has taught me so many things and has developed me into the Father, Husband, Teacher and Coach I am today. Having coached football for over 24 years,  and currently the Head Varsity High School Footbal Coach, I wanted to find another way I could
help to give back to this great game.  
       My thought was to develop something in New York State that could not only help to improve individual football skills in a fun and exciting atmosphere, but 
also give kids more opportunities to develope life skills through football activities. I also wanted to provide an opportunity to help coaches develop their skills as educators and teachers.

       So I developed the NYS Elite Athletics, were we provide  Football Camps, Showcases, Clinics and much more. Check out our entire website to see all our events, as we will be adding more soon.

"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 camps and be part of a special program."
