Why Play with TGA

From introductory programs at schools and community centers to recreational camps and leagues, each of our program offerings represents a step in our Player Pathway to help guide our parents and encourage our students to Keep Playing!®

We incorporate station-based athletic skill development activities, STEAM activities to explore educational concepts through sports, and key life lessons including teamwork, sportsmanship, perseverance, and leadership.

 

Athletics

Our programs align with the American Development Model (ADM) created by the U.S. Olympic Committee to help individuals realize their athletic potential and utilize sport as a path toward an active and healthy lifestyle.

Academics

We use sports as a vehicle for teaching academic lessons. Students participate in STEAM activities that allow them to creatively explore and relate concepts such as history, math, gravity, aerodynamics, and simple machines through the sports they are playing.

Life Lessons

Through sports, we help develop values that promote individual growth and teamwork. By teaching lessons in sportsmanship, perseverance, respect, positive mindset and leadership, our young athletes are encouraged to make good decisions on the field, course, court and in life.

"TGA is very organized, communication is very good, teachers are knowledgeable and relate well to the children. I appreciate that there was foundational knowledge about the rules of the game in addition to the skill development and they taught the children importance of warm ups before exercise. Lifelong skills are being cultivated."
