ABOUT US

PlaySmart has made significant progress in the fulfillment of our mission since its inception in 1997.   While PlaySmart has made an impact in several cities since that time, we remain committed to supporting programs and outreach in the cities where some the original founders of the organization reside.  Click on the city on the left to learn about PlaySmart activities and events in each location.  We thank you for your interest in and support of your local PlaySmart programs!

PLAYSMART ACADEMY

The PlaySmart Academy is our flagship youth program that integrates sports and physical fitness with character, life skills and leadership development. The Academy starts with one to two week summer experience for youth and continues throughout the school year with subsequent activities and events.

The Academy is not your typical “summer camp”. Our original branded program provides a curriculum that blends fun and performance for 5th through 8th graders who are looking to excel both on and off the court or field. Centered around the 5 PlaySmart pillars, we teach life-lessons that build a foundation for success where they can build confidence, gain life skills, be exposed to new ideas, see future possibilities for themselves and receive guidance and encouragement from staff members, coaches and other positive adults.

The PlaySmart cities that run an Academy each provide a unique experience for local youth. For more information on the program nearest you, visit your local PlaySmart city.

The Academy curriculum is saturated with PlaySmart’s five pillars, which are used to convey lessons and skills needed for academic and life success.
