Our mission is to provide the kids ages 6-16 years old with opportunities to develop good citizenship and college readiness skills through our programs. We are dedicated through our core values of developing a strong work ethic, personal discipline, honesty, and respect to inspire youth to make positive decisions throughout their lives. We are committed to help youth to embrace these core values as they are central to our programs and operations.

We are so thankful to God for Midwest Sports Academy and the founder of this wonderful organization,

Mr. Jim Cook.  When we were first approached about the three on three tournament, it was obvious that Mr. Jim Cook had a huge heart for the youth.  He invests his time and energy to contribute to the younger generations who will become the future leaders!  We first met at a photo shoot, and he was great with Ella Joy, interacting with her, and even pushing her on the swings on the playground!

At the 3 on 3 tournament, it was so great to see all the teams that came out to play basketball.  Midwest Sports Academy helped raise awareness and funds for our daughter Ella Joy as she fights stage 4 non-Hodgkins cancer.  At the tournament, there was even a table of soldiers who made dog tags for everyone! It was a great fundraiser, and we were extremely thankful to Midwest Sports Academy, Mr. Jim Cook, and everyone who came out to the 3 on 3 tournament!
