Using inspiration, motivation and perspiration, the National Academy of Athletics goal is to bring out a positive change in every participant!

Participants have a great time as they gain new sports skills, life skills while make lasting friendships.

We believe that there is no better teaching tool than team sports. Through inspiration, motivation and perspiration, the experienced, positive and passionate National Academy of Athletics coaches help everyone become more successful both on and off the field.

All of our programs are led by a highly trained team of coaches and teachers who are carefully chosen to ensure each camper's safety, skill development & individual enjoyment. At all National Academy of Athletics programs, we encourage the campers to play with confidence, enthusiasm and a love for the game.

All of our programs are designed to provide children a safe, fun and educational experience. We offer a wide variety of programs that range from one day clinics to week long camps. Our day camps are perfect for beginners to the more advanced players. We also provide quality training and fun experiences for adults. We believe that for there to be an amazing youth sports experience the PLAYERS, PARENTS & COACHES need to be on the same page.

The foundation of the Academy started when founder Aaron Locks was working with coaching legends that include, John Wooden, Pat Riley, George Karl, Don Nelson, Dusty Baker and more... Since 1991 over 200,000 players, parents, coaches, & officials have taken part in the amazing programs offered by the National Academy of Athletics Founder, Aaron Locks.
