The United States Sports Academy was the first and is the only of its kind in the United States. It was established in 1972 to turn around a new scientific finding that linked poor preparation of coaches to the injuries incurred by the athletes they supervised. Today, coaches everywhere can prepare thoroughly for their work. Through sports-focused instruction, support of research, and teamwork with professional groups like the National Federation of State High School Associations, the Academy showed how to meet sports professionals’ educational needs.
The Academy’s first decades have also coincided with the general awakening to the role of exercise in health and the value of individual commitment to healthy living. This has meant expanding employment opportunities for our graduates.
The United States Sports Academy is America’s Sports University, with graduates worldwide. And we are ready to come to you.
