Connor Kids Academy isn't for just anyone
For those who are willing to commit, it offers potential life-changing possibilities
1,000-day journey focused on long-term success, one day at a time
Connor Kids Academy is an innovative approach to guiding and developing young men. Through the power of sports, we provide a potentially life-changing experience to those who are ready to commit. We focus on helping participants maintain healthy habits and make good choices.
Each summer, we join our college and university athletic partners to offer an unforgettable 3-day sports experience. Participants make lasting memories with their sports heroes over multiple years. Additionally, participants tour a college campus, get inspired by guest speakers, participate in educational sessions, and interact with other motivated young men from all over the city.
At fall and spring events, we come together again in person to support and push one another — and most importantly, have a ton of fun!
The glue that keeps our boys — and our program — connected
Complementing our summer sports camp and the fall and spring events, our custom app guides participants as they navigate life's challenges on a weekly basis. On the app, participants engage each week in a variety of ways, such as tracking daily habits, setting goals, and completing interactive activities. More engagement equals more real-life rewards — sports equipment, apparel, tickets, gear, and more!
The app is only for our Academy participants, so we can focus on what they care about and what they're interested in to positively influence their lives each week for our entire 1,000-day program.
For young men looking to do the work
The only enrollment window is the summer before 5th grade, when we offer 30 spots per city. Connor Kids Academy is a 1,000-day journey. Because of the scale of our investment in each participant, we require parents and participants to formally commit to engaging for all 1,000 days.
Be inspired, not intimidated, by our limited spots and the commitment required. If you're ready to put in the work, we're ready to welcome you. You must:
- Attend all in-person events
- Use the app at least once per week
- Form habits and make choices to be your best self
In return, we commit to investing considerable time and resources into participants' success and pushing ourselves to improve the program.
