National Youth Sports Program (NYSP)
NYSP is a five week summer sports and academic enrichment program for youth in the greater Cleveland area between the ages 10-16. Nominated as the number one recreation program in the country, more than 14,000 youth have participated in this program since 1970. Monday thru Friday between 8:00a.m. and 2:00p.m. campers participate in a variety of sports and academic enrichment activities. They include: flag football, tennis, basketball, swimming, soccer, volleyball and other sporting events; presentations on health and physical fitness; tutoring and instruction of reading, mathematics, science and other academic subjects; and discussions of opportunities in higher education. In addition, graduate students from the School of Medicine and the School of Nursing provide free physicals to all campers, blood pressure screenings and other noninvasive exams. NYSP is supported by the Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson and Cleveland City Council.
