About Connor Kids Academy

Making an impact through the power of sports


Motivating our youth...

Connor Kids Academy is an innovative approach to sports camps. It provides kids with a potentially life-changing three-year experience, leveraging professional and college athletes and coaches to provide impactful in-person experiences and an interactive app that promotes healthy habits and choices.

Once a year, kids will get the opportunity to work with collegiate and professional athletes and coaches over a three-day period, during which they will take part in activities designed to encourage physical, social, and emotional growth. They will learn everything from the value of forming healthy habits to the importance of making good choices.

Staying Connected...

The program also includes touchpoints throughout the school year, as well as access to The Academy app. The app provides a platform for campers to stay connected and continue to practice the lessons they learn. Students will receive virtual advice from professional athletes, coaches, and other celebrities providing motivation and reinforcement of key values. Students will also receive weekly updates with tasks or challenges to complete with the opportunity to earn rewards and recognition.


Making a Commitment...

Connor Kids Academy is a three-year commitment. It starts the summer before the student’s fifth-grade year and concludes the summer after their seventh-grade school year. During that time, they will experience summer camps, field trips, sporting events, and the opportunity to earn rewards and recognition.

Students pledge to dedicate themselves to making choices and forming habits to become their best selves. Students will earn their ability to remain in Connor Kids Academy by showing up, staying engaged, trying hard, and contributing in a positive manner.
