ABC15 has teamed up with The Valley Toyota Dealers to help organizations around the Valley who are Helping Kids Go Places.
The Phoenix Sports Academy is a gym and a hub for community members to gather and work on improving their health, learn life skills, teamwork, and build community.
For their efforts to Help Kids Go Places, the Phoenix Sports Academy has received a $500 VISA gift card courtesy of The Valley Toyota Dealers to help further their efforts in our community.
Here's how the group describes itself:
Phoenix Sports Academy (PSA), a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization is located in the Phoenix community of Maryvale. Maryvale, a diverse community has a proud history of success, rooted families, and citizens organizing to build a safe and prosperous community.PSA founder, Anibal Deciga, is a true believer in the power of athletics and the profound impact of athletics on the lives of individuals young and old, and in transforming communities to become healthier, more cohesive, and prosperous. PSA was established as a nonprofit on June 26, 2015. Nearly a year later on June 10, 2016, PSA founders, friends, and community held the grand opening and began offering boxing, break dancing, and special community events. Within a year, the gym became a hub for community members to gather and children and adults to work on improving their health, learn life skills, teamwork, and build community. PSA has held numerous events including boxing exhibitions, dance competitions, and holiday celebrations. Membership continues to grow and one of the main challenges will soon be space. PSA is currently occupying 1800 sq. ft. suite, situated in an industrial park in close proximity to the community of Maryvale. Walk into the gym and you will see Anibal Deciga and others volunteering their time and making a difference in the lives of children, youth, and adults who in turn make a difference in the community of Maryvale and elsewhere.
