Bring the NAofA to Your School
National Academy of Athletics is on a mission to bring youth sports to kids throughout the nation. We use sports to promote positive mental and physical development in our youth. Our goal is to diminish childhood obesity by advocating for healthy lifestyles while providing tools to boost confidence.
National Academy of Athletics has SOLUTIONS, please allow us to help!
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!
CONFIDENCE – OPTIMISM – GROWTH

FITNESS THROUGH FUNDAMENTALS
Approved Physical Education Supplementation For Your Students
The goal of physical education is to develop physically literate individuals who have the knowledge, skills and confidence to enjoy a lifetime of healthful physical activity. At 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. National Academy of Athletics works with schools in California to offer a detailed Physical Education Program for ages Tk- 8th grade: Fitness of Fundamentals
Fitness Through Fundamentals is a PE Supplementation Program that introduces K-8 children to the world of sports, health and fitness. In each class, we provide a quality PE Supplement to your school. Through our age appropriate curriculum, students are taught the skills and concepts of a variety of 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 the physical and emotional needs of each age group 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
Twenty years ago, kids used to meet up at parks and play sports or run around outside after school. Nowadays, many kids go back 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 their friends. As a school community partner, you can bring this enriching time back into 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 per day. Times and days of the week vary based on the season, the sport, the number of participants, the students’ grades, and the facilities available.
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.
HOW IT WORKS
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 of age 4 – 6, and our NAofA Programs to kids 7 – 13 years olds. For larger programs, we may also break this age group out for kids 7-9 and 10-13 years of age.
• 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 that take place 1-2 days a week. Clubs are perfect for families looking for a consistent program throughout the summer.
The National Academy of Athletics has over 100 partnerships with City Recreation Department’s, Youth Sports Leagues, Schools, Boy & Girls Clubs, YMCA’s and Private Youth Sports Organizations. With additional school community partners, we can continue to grow to be the preferred youth sports provider in California.
Our goal is to provide Youth Sports to kids throughout the nation.
COMMUNITY PARTNER TESTIMONIALS
“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.”
“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!”
“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.”
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.
