RECREATIONAL YOUTH SPORTS AND COACHING ACADEMY

TRANSFORMING KIDS LIVES THROUGH THE POWER OF SPORTS

The NAofA recreational youth sports camps and programs are designed to help kids of all abilities. The goal is to have tons of fun, learn sport-specific fundamentals, and gain confidence on and off the field. We teach children about success, failure, and what it means to be part of a team. Kids need role models more than critics, so our NAofA Certified Coaches & Instructors focus on fundamental skill development taught in a fun and positive environment.

The National Academy of Athletics is on a mission to bring our youth programs to kids throughout the nation. We teach sports fundamentals to promote positive physical and mental development. Our goal is to diminish childhood obesity by advocating for healthy lifestyles while providing tools to boost confidence, optimism, enthusiasm, and personal growth.

“My kids are not real athletic, but they love these camps because the coaches always are friendly, engaging and make it fun. They not only enjoy themselves they learn how to be more successful on and off the field.”

“Aaron Locks and the National Academy of Athletics are committed to the development of both the athletic skills aspect of youth sports and the educational components.  The educational components as they apply not only to the young participant but also to coaches, parents, and officials.  Aaron, along with the men and women who work with him, understand that it is only when all involved in youth sports work together that the young participants get the most from the experience.  My son and I had the privilege of working with Aaron Locks and we both grew from the experience, just as I’m sure you and your children will.”
