California, April 22, 2020 ‐ The National Academy of Athletics provides youth physical education programs for boys and girls throughout California. With a proven track record of providing safe, fun and educational sports camps and clinics, they have become a preferred partner to City Recreation Centers, Schools and Youth Sports Leagues.
Geared up to run over 900 youth sports programs this spring and summer, the spread of the Coronavirus put their programs on hold. Aaron Locks, CEO and Founder of the NAofA, looked for a solution to keep kids in their communities healthy and active while told they couldn’t go to their favorite sports camp during this break. He also wanted to keep his team employed.
“I am amazed and so grateful for the amazing team here at the National Academy of Athletics and excited to be able to come together so quickly to produce these opportunities to help kids stay active, learn skills and have fun under such challenging times.,” said Aaron Locks.
Many of the NAofA Area Captain’s are former college and pro athletes so they are not only dedicated to keeping youth sports fun and educational, they are passionate about how youth sports gave them the opportunity to grow into active, healthy adults.
When word got out about their virtual sports camps, Ken Taylor, former professional American football defensive back who played cornerback for two seasons for the Chicago Bears and the San Diego Chargers of the National Football League, did not hesitate to join in the fun.
