The National Academy of Athletics is on a mission to bring sports to children throughout the USA. Sports build skills such as teamwork, leadership, responsibility and important life lessons such as competitiveness, perseverance and sportsmanship. We use sports to promote positive mental and physical development in our youth.
Our participants have a great time as they learn new sports, gain new skills, build lasting friendships, and make physical fitness an enjoyable part of their lives. Our coaches create passionate players on and off the field. They face challenges, learn new techniques and continue to grow on a professional level as they prepare for coaching in the big-leagues.
Founded in 2012, The National Academy of Athletics is the largest and fastest growing youth sports organization in California. We provide sports camps for kids throughout the state. In the last two years we launched our Intranet to provide easy, 24/7 access to train new Area Captain Partners to manage and grow their territories. We have streamlined our onboarding process and launched a brand new website. We are currently marketing territories to find representation in markets where cities are requesting the NAofA bring our programs. We will soon be expanding to various cities throughout the United States.
We work with schools, leagues, and municipalities to provide first class youth athletic programs. Over 300,000 kids have participated in the camps and clinics designed by the National Academy of Athletics founder, Aaron Locks.
Our target market consists of 20 million children playing team sports. On average, 61% of all boys and almost 53% of all girls between the ages of 6 – 12 have participated in a team sport. Approximately 70% of these kids will participate in a sports camp.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, NAofA recognised the need for kids to exercise was even more prevalent. We swiftly adapted to the online movement, shifting our offerings online, providing live programs, on-demand camps and virtual classes.
We believe that there is no better teaching tool than team sports. Through inspiration, motivation and perspiration our participants have a great time as they gain new skills, all while developing lasting friendships. At all NAofA programs, we encourage kids to play with confidence, enthusiasm and a love for the game.
It is the mission of the National Academy of Athletics to provide Youth Sports Programs to children throughout the year. We offer a wide variety of programs ranging from one-day clinics to week-long camps, all designed to provide children with a safe, fun and educational youth sports experience. We also provide training programs for parents and coaches.
These programs are available year-round during school, over holiday breaks, at local leagues, and include:
- Physical Education programs
- After-school programs
- Summer sports camps
- School break camps
- League support programs
- Coaching & sports clinics for parents
- Fitness through fundamentals
- And more!
