Marin County Youth Sports

Kids sports camp

Gear up for NAofA Marin County youth sports. The NAofA Programs are designed for the mental and physical growth of kids. Through our programs, kids learn athletics, fundamentals of sports, life skills, and the dynamics of working as a team while having FUN!

Building Healthy Bodies

and Happy Hearts

We teach kids about success, failure, and what it means to be part of a team. Children are in need of role models more than critics. Because of this, our instructors focus on fundamental skill development taught in a fun and positive environment.

TESTIMONIALS

I can’t begin to tell you how much I appreciate working with Ben. These past 2.5 years have been a nightmare, to be honest. Trying to begin programs during all the different phases of COVID has been brain-deadening. It has demanded endless pivoting. Ben has handled it all with so much calm, brilliance, and patience. He is an amazing professional. I want to thank you for having him.

Our school was in a pinch mid-semester and the NAofA stepped in on short notice and brought a comprehensive PE program for our Kindergarten-5th grade school.  We have been delighted with their enthusiastic instructors, how they provide all the necessary equipment and their curriculum options.  They met our immediate needs and we hope to partner with them for the foreseeable future. A dynamic solution for our PE program.

I wanted to convey to you what an improvement PE is for my kids. Izzy has been showing me what she is learning at PE and I am VERY impressed that she now knows how to do squats, sit-ups, plank, and so much more. Both my kids are really enjoying the activities they are doing as well as the teachers. They really respect Coach Ben and Coach Quest and seem to have a better appreciation for PE in general.  I am a strong believer in physical education – teaching kids the importance of moving their bodies and how to use them. So glad this is being taught to our kids!

My son had an excellent experience with Coach Ben’s basketball program. As a child who typically “hangs back” with new experiences, Coach Ben was able to get my son participating and excited about the game right from the start. Ben is professional, motivating, energetic, and knowledgeable. A great asset for kids’ programs!

My daughter did the All Sports program, and she absolutely loved it! Coach Ben is great with kids and she learned a lot about different sports and now she’s picked her favorite ones to focus on. It was a very positive experience.

My two sons did the Lacrosse camp in Marin this week and loved every minute. The camp counselors were amazing and made the week so much fun.

BEN FREELAND

Sports has been a passion of mine ever since I was a kid. As a kid I played baseball, basketball, and golf; but it was basketball that stole the show. It was through basketball I was able to do things that a lot of people dream of doing. It took me places far and wide from all across the United States and even abroad to Europe.

Not only did sports allow me to travel the world and take on many new experiences, but the life lessons one can learn from sports are endless. The mission at the National Academy of Athletics is one that is close to my heart. Being a part of this team and passing the lessons I learned through sports down to the next generation makes it not feel like work at all. There is no place I would rather be than passing my love for sports and experiences on to the kids of our community.
