About the NAofA
Learn about the NAofA! The NAofA sport programs for kids are specifically designed to help players of all abilities. The goal is to have tons of fun, learn sport-specific skills, and gain confidence on and off the field. We teach children about success, failure, and what it means to be part of a team. Our coaches provide an enthusiastic place for kids to fall in love with their chosen sport.
NAofA Certified Coaches
All programs are led by a highly trained team of NAofA Certified coaches and instructors who are carefully selected to ensure each camper’s safety, skill development & individual enjoyment. We encourage all our campers to play with confidence, enthusiasm and a love for the game.
Teaching Youth Sports the Way They Were Meant to be Taught
It is the mission of the National Academy of Athletics to provide Youth Sports Programs to community children throughout the year. During the school year we work with schools to fulfill their Physical Education requirements mandated by the Department of Education. Instead of kids standing around outside with an English or History teacher, our team steps in to instruct actual Physical Education programs for kids. The NAofA sports programs for kids put the fun back into PE! Teacher also appreciate not having the responsibility of teaching PE and favor the time to work on their lesson plans or grade papers. It’s a true win-win!
During the school year we work with municipalities to also provide NAofA sport programs for kids during breaks, holidays, and for teacher work days. This offers parents the ability to leave their kids with us while they may still need to go to work. It offers kids a great way to get active, stay healthy and have fun during their school breaks. Parents can either find our camps at their local Community Center or right at their school.
Partnering with Municipalities that Need Our Help
Municipalities through out the state of California have partnered with the NAofA to provide the children in their communities with the best sports programs out there! By partnering with the NAofA we offer these cities a solution to provide a local Area Captain, the best coaches, a wide variety of sports to choose from, and an easier way for them to balance their staffing and budgets. During Summers you’ll find NAofA sports programs for kids at over 100 locations.
Youth Leagues value the support the NAofA provides. When we partner with a league, we provide training courses for the volunteer parents, coaches, and referees. Our courses get everyone involved working together. Volunteer parents, whom often have never coached or managed a team before, become much more confident and are much more successful at keeping kids excited about playing. The NAofA will also take over the entire management of a League for schools and municipalities that are in need.
Sports Should be FUN for Kids
NAofA sport programs for kids are designed to provide children with a safe, fun, and educational youth sports experience. We offer a wide variety of programs ranging from our one-day clinics to week-long camps and so many sports from which to choose.
In a short time we have grown from 3 locations to over 100. We continuously receive requests from cities to bring our programs their way and we are doing our best to meet the demand. It is our mission to bring our quality youth sports programs to children across the nation.
