Just as the Small Business Community Association is dedicated to helping small business succeed, the National Academy of Athletics is passionate about creating healthier youth sports and athletic experiences for children.

Through Aaron’s leadership and willingness to do the little extra things to help the kids, they are making a difference. Each day, through motivation, inspiration and perspiration, their staff works hard to bring out a positive change in the kids and their local community.

Local Little League board member and School PTA President, Donna Prak, local believes: “The National Academy of Athletics has become an instrumental part of our community. Both in our leagues and our schools, the kids not only get exercise and develop skills, they are creating healthy habits that will serve them well as they go through life.”
Locks is the first to share the credit with his team. He also uses daily reminders from his mentor, Legendary Basketball Coach John Wooden: “It is amazing how much can be accomplished when no one cares who received the credit.”
