AKA After School Program

The after school hours are crucial times for kids to develop good habits and to avoid bad choices. Statistics show that the hours between 3 and 6 p.m. are the peak hours for juvenile crime and experimentation with drugs, alcohol, cigarettes and sex.  However, statistics also show that after school programs produce multiple benefits for youth, including improvements in children's personal, social and academic skills, as well as their self-esteem. (afterschoolalliance.org)

We know there are numerous benefits to kids participating in after school programs and AKASPORT brings the added benefit of keeping kids active for the recommended 60 minutes a day to reduce the risks of obesity related illnesses. We want to ensure that every child has a safe and fun place to play, learn and grow after school. 

AKASPORT designs active sport and fitness enrichment programs for Elementary and Middle schools. We design and administer a skills and games curriculum, bring the equipment and train our staff to make these programs educational, enriching, and a ton of fun!

Programs include soccer, lacrosse, archery, basketball, floor hockey, golf and more!

AKA TYKES

Dear AKA Tykes Parent!

Welcome to AKASPORT!  I just want to introduce myself and the active program which you are getting your youngster involved in. 

Active Kids Association of Sport, AKASPORT, is the area's leading all sports programming in terms of the number of sports and fitness programs we are able to provide as well as HOW WE DO IT IN A SAFE AND FUN ENVIRONMENT!  We believe in keeping sports fun, keeping fitness and health at the forefront of what we do everyday, and keeping kids moving and active in healthy environments.

Our youth programs generally start at the time kids enter or finish kindergarten as our philosophy in childhood development is that kids before the age of 6 should learn in unstructured, parent guided activities.  However, we understand the culture of today and the want for more structure at younger ages.  We are more than happy to assist and provide such All Sports programming yet we ask that you as parents take part in these AKA Tykes activities with your children.  We invite and strongly encourage you to participate in the entire class if you are interested and able.

We look forward to providing a fun and active environment and we look forward to working with you and your youngster.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to let me know.  (chris@akasport.org

Have a great day... all the best!
