FITNESS THROUGH FUNDAMENTALS

Approved Physical Education Supplementation For Your Students

Physical education aims to develop physically literate individuals with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to enjoy a lifetime of healthful physical activity. At the NAofA, we understand the importance of physical activity in children’s lives, and we want to promote physical fitness and healthy cognitive function for our youth. The National Academy of Athletics works with schools to offer a detailed Physical Education Program for ages Tk- 8th grade.

PE Supplementation Program

The NAofA PE Supplementation Program introduces K-8 children to sports, health, and fitness. Our age-appropriate curriculum teaches students the skills and

concepts of various sports, games, and exercises. We provide engaging, active, and entertaining activities with a core curriculum built to develop a healthy interest in sports and fitness. Our curriculum is based on each age group’s physical and emotional needs from the National Standards and Grade-Level Outcomes.

Our large variety of curriculum ensures that all three domains of physical education: psychomotor, cognitive, and affective, are incorporated daily. It includes not only physical competence and knowledge but also the attitudes, motivation, and social skills needed for participation.

The National Academy of Athletics Fitness Through Fundamentals program meets the California Physical Education Framework and Standards and has been approved to provide fitness testing and the Presidential Youth Fitness Program.

Fitness through Fundamentals: Curriculum (Age Specific)

  • Sports 101
    • This program focuses on teaching kids the basics of sports and fitness. The instructor will guide the students through different sports in 4-week modules throughout the semester.
  • Training Camp
    • This fitness-based program will challenge your students to complete multiple sports movement modules. This is the perfect blend of sports-specific athletics and physical activities.
  • Fundamentals

  • Innovative lesson plans and fitness-based games for Distance Learning
    • NAofA PE Bingo
    • In-home options with little to no equipment/ limited space

  8. Promote and enforce a positive learning environment for good sportsmanship

AFTER-SCHOOL SPORTS CLUB & INTRAMURAL LEAGUES

Kids Need a Safe Place to Play

Twenty years ago, kids used to meet at parks, play sports, or run outside after school. Nowadays, many kids return to empty homes and play video games until their parents return from work. Our After-School Programs provide a safe, fun environment for kids to learn about sports, play games and be active with friends. As a school community partner, you can return this enriching time to our youth’s lives.

Flexible Scheduling

In order to serve the growing need for after-school sports and athletics, the NAofA has created several options for schools, PTAs, PTO, or individual parent registration. Most after-school sports programs are offered in 6 – 8 weeks blocks, approximately 1.5 – 2 hours daily. Times and days of the week vary based on the season, sport, number of participants, student grades, and available facilities.

Provide the Location, We’ll do the Rest

The National Academy of Athletics provides all staff, equipment, and curriculum. For those schools that have an interest in participating in multi-campus sports leagues, uniforms can be included. (NAofA does not transport any students.)

For programs that require parent registration, the NAofA will create marketing materials, including flyers, marketing ads for social media and electronic distribution, posters, banners, and school lawn signs. In addition, the NAofA can manage all registrations online, or the school has the option to manage registrations.

Summer and Holiday Break Programs

Whether children are beginners or more advanced players, the drills taught at these clinics will help them fall in love with different sports. Our sport-specific classes are the perfect place to learn the fundamentals of each sport and allow children to improve their skills while having a blast and making new friends.

• Proper conditioning and warm-ups
• Balance and coordination
• Build motor skills and coordination
• Confidence builder program
• Offense and defensive skills
• Competitions and games
• Individual & team concepts
• Speed and agility
• Teamwork and cooperation

We have developed sports programs for two age groups. We offer our Junior Academy to kids ages 4 – 6 and our NAofA Programs to kids 7 – 13. We may also break this age group out for kids 7-9 and 10-13 for larger programs.

Options:

CLINICS are 1-2 days in length. Clinics are great for weekends or sport-specific development.

DAY CAMPS are 3-5 days in length. Camps are great for Monday – Friday breaks from school. An excellent choice so that you may offer different types of sports programming throughout the summer.

CLUBS are an ongoing series of commitments 1-2 days a week. Clubs are perfect for families looking for a consistent program throughout the summer.

Schools simply MUST offer PE.

Physical Education is now more important than ever. We all know the health benefits of PE, but studies show that PE is an instrumental part of offering Social & Emotional Learning (SEL). It is the most powerful (and unappreciated) ‘medicine’ for present and future health issues – For the body, mind, and spirit.

Teaching SEL through physical education helps students navigate many of the challenges they face each day. It promotes academic achievement and positive social behavior while reducing conduct problems, substance abuse, and emotional distress.

The National Academy of Athletics Curriculum includes physical activity, coordination, strength, and balance while implementing instructional strategies that intentionally address SEL competencies. Our focus will be CONFIDENCE, OPTIMISM & GROWTH!

COMMUNITY PARTNER TESTIMONIALS

Chris Meyer Community Partner

“Working with National Academy of Athletics has been a total collaboration from the start. They have been easy to work with, professional and simply want to provide the best recreational sports experience for children possible. This partnership has helped the City of Rocklin double the recreational sports programs that it can offer to its residents and their families.”

Chris Meyer, Recreation Coordinator, Rocklin Community Center

“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!” 

Parent , Glenwood Elementary School, San Rafael

“This is our third year using the National Academy of Athletics Fitness Through Fundamentals. Their administration is very responsive, their instructors are prompt and enthusiastic and our students love the program.”

Tracy Kendal, Principal, Mark West Elementary School

Our school was in a pinch mid-semester and NAA 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 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.
