“Building Up Sports Academy was designed by teachers to instill discipline, teamwork, and confidence while learning new sports skills” -David Aagaard

David Aagaard is the founder and owner of Building Up Sports Academy.  He has been working with sports camps for over 20 years.  He attended Palm Beach Atlantic University where he majored in Physical Education and minored in communication. David played on the 1995 Fall Palm Beach Atlantic University baseball team and is the former head baseball coach at Jupiter Christian High School.  In addition to running Building Up Sports Academy, David is currently in his 15th year as a middle school teacher in Palm Beach County.  Building Up Sports Academy was founded in 2002 and has grown from 2 camps the first year to over 80 camps, clinics and programs a year.

We run over 60 camps in Palm Beach County,FL as well as Nantucket, Mass. The camps we offer are baseball, basketball, flag-football, soccer, dance and cheer-leading, karate, and fishing camps. We also offer over 20 Itty Bitty camps and programs throughout the year.  New sports programs and camps have been added every year.  Our fishing camps and programs have become one of the largest in the state.

Sportsmanship and teamwork are a huge part of what we teach in all of our camps. We feel most camps and coaches do not emphasize these two important areas of sports enough.  Our instructors will teach these important concepts as much as individual sports skills. 

*Most of our camp directors are state certified teachers and coaches.

*All of our camp directors, coaches and counselors are finger printed and background checked.

*Building Up Sports Academy is fully insured
