MSA Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide the kids ages 3-16 years old with opportunities and resources. We are dedicated through our core values of developing a strong work ethic, personal discipline, honesty, and respect to inspire youth and others to make positive decisions throughout their lives.

2019 KnockDown Camp

We started this program out a couple of years ago with just a few youths. The growth has been unbelivable.  A special shout out to all the coaches and volunteers, this event would not have been possible without you.
I would like to thank everyone else that supported Midwest Sports Academy in this event. We couldn’t have done this without you.


Creating A Smile At Christmas!!!!

We started this program out a couple of years ago with just 24-45 youths. This year we “Triple”the numbers of youth this year. This year we created smiles for 154 youths. This was done by corporate sponsors, friends, communities members and family members. There was so much kindness, passion for others, love and heart warming gifts for all the youths. I can’t express how thankfully I’m to have so many people fill these youths wishes. I’m sure all the youths will enjoy the gifts they received.
I would like to thank everyone that supported Midwest Sports Academy in this event. We couldn’t have done this without you.


Thanksgiving Baskets

Our Thanksgiving Mission

“This is a time of the year where families really need help. We want to put into practice the universally known truth that “it is more blessed to give than to receive”. Please join us this holiday season and bring joy to families that deserve but are not able to afford a true Thanksgiving meal. “Help make this a Thanksgiving these families will never forget.”

Proverbs 11:25 says “…he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.” Think about whom you can bless this year. Let us bless you as we give thanks for all we have.

We can use your help!
