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.

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.
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.
