OUR BACKGROUND

OUR MISSION

Our mission statement is simple. We want "To promote a lifelong enjoyment of Youth Sports to the Aventura community that focuses on fun, safety, and convenience." As Physical Educators, we feel there is no better way to teach a child the skills necessary to succeed in life than through sports. We focus on five main values in our program. These five values (Respect, Teamwork, Accountabilty, Determination, Sportsmanship) lead to success on the field and off it!

OUR GOAL

Our goal is that all participants will have a positive experience participating in our leagues and will therefore find a sport they really enjoy that will promote lifelong physcial activity and health. We focus on sportsmanship over game result and we want to ensure all participants are comfortable and having fun each time they are on the court or field. Putting the fun back into youth sports is something we strive each and every day to accomplish.  

"The life skills and values my daughter learned by participating in the after school basketball league is something I know she will take with her in her day to day life. I am so thrilled to have found such a great league that is not just focused on winning." - Aventura parent of a 3rd grader
