HOW WAS THE FIRST DAY BACK?
Parents were equally as enthused as their kids about the return to camps. As a father himself, Aaron stated, “Seeing kids back on the field and court warms my heart!” The National Academy of Athletics knows the importance of kids being able to run around, exercise, and engage with friends and coaches.
At the beginning of camp, as expected, there was a small adjustment period as everyone adapted to new safety procedures. However, due to the highly trained NAofA coaching staff, the camp was executed very smoothly. Samantha Thaxton, NAofA Certified Coach and Area Captain, explained, “The small groups made it really easy to focus on individual skills for the campers. It was obvious how excited each kid was to be able to attend summer camp and play sports with their friends again.”
KIDS WHO STILL CAN’T PLAY
The National Academy of Athletics has created Virtual 5-Day Sports Camps to keep kids active and healthy while they social distance in their own homes. Many of their existing Community Partners, both Recreation Centers and Schools, have shared these camps with their communities. In addition, 27 new organizations from all over the country have partnered with the NAofA to provide their community with On-Demand Sports Camps.
The National Academy of Athletics’ number one commitment is the safety and enjoyment of the children attending their organized activities. The NAofA is closely following all guidelines and procedures in order to protect campers, staff, and the community.
