Description

The MYA Summer Program is the heart and soul of our mission and is designed be a health and wellness summer program with track and& field as its core. This program aims to initially impact 300 3rd - 8th grade girls and boys by developing stronger physical abilities, athletic confidence, and an appetite to learn the joys of physical fitness and wellness. This will be achieved through a blend of informal play, technical instruction, and fun! The goal of the program is for our children to walk away with a renewed sense of confidence, healthier habits, and a joy for the sport of track and& field.

In addition to learning the basics of track and& field, student athletes will be exposed to a learning adventure that will combine math, reading, nutrition, and character development. The MYA City Summer Program is supported by community partners such as U of M College of Health Science, Christian Brothers High School, and Memphis Parks. Our Corporate partnerships also play an instrumental role in developing the whole kid.

The program will have transportation hubs set up in communities of North Memphis, South Memphis, and East Memphis.
