Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Amateur Sports, Sports

Mission: AcroSports is a non-profit organization whose mission is to teach and develop the physical, performing and circus arts. We commit ourselves to serving our community in a safe, positive environment, offering activities that encourage teamwork and build strengths and self-esteem, and enhancing life's experience.

Geographic areas served: Bay Area

Programs: On-site classes at the acrosports facility served over 1,000 students per week, ages 10 months through adults with more than 180 weekly class offerings. Classes are held 7 days per week, in four sessions that constitute 47 weeks of programming in the calendar year. Additionally, we offer 14 weeks of circus and specialty day camps for ages 5-12 during the spring, summer and winter school breaks, attended by 40 students per week. We recently expended our program offerings to include a drop-in baby play group for 10-18 month-olds and their parents, which meets twice per week and is attended by an average of 12 families per class.

the offsite and outreach programs at local schools, preschools and community centers expand acrosports' reach further into the community. We serve hundreds of students at over 20 local sites, more than half of which received reduced-cost programming subsidized by grant funding, donations, and proceeds from on-site fee-for-service programs.

acrosports hosts 9 birthday parties per weekend, with an average of 20 participants per party, for roughly 45 weekends per year

AcroSports is a wonderful organization that offers children and adults new opportunities to exercise and explore their imaginations, cross cultural traditions, empowerment and simply have fun. I took a Capoeira class here with a fabulous Brazilian instructor who was patient, generous and kind. You can also learn to master Parkour (the French art of urban climbing) in a safe and padded setting. Bring your kids and you can enjoy dance, gymnastics and staying healthy together.

My 10 year old son recently participated in 1 week of circus camp and 1 week of x-sports camp. He has never been so enthusiastic about any other summer camp he has been enrolled in. Each day when I picked him up, he was full of stories about what he learned at camp. To top it off, he actually enjoyed participating in the end of week performance for the parents. I think this is because the instructors let the campers contribute ideas about what they want the performance to be. So, the campers develop, practice, and put on their own performance with the guidance of the instructors. My son usually loathes school performances and gets very nervous before his piano recitals and I knew this camp was worth every penny spent when my tween said to me, "Mom, I wasn't embarassed at all."

I love acrosports because it is fun because I get to climb and to get my face painted. The people are fun.
