Letter From Academy President

Thank you for visiting our website.

It’s been quite a journey being able to work with such dynamic and talented young, aspiring sports broadcasters. In the early years, we launched a weekly, hour-long television broadcast in the Central Florida market. The show featured area high school students as YSN Sports reporters airing on Bright House Networks in Orlando, FL.

From there, we were extremely proud to premier the “YSN Show with Scott and Ryan”. Both just 10th graders, Scott and Ryan co-hosted a prime-time, weekly sports radio talk show before a live studio audience with sports celebrities flying in from all over the U.S. as studio guests. The show was broadcast live on stations throughout the U.S. and Canada from the ESPN Club at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL. As incoming high school freshmen, the overwhelming overload of teenage peer-pressure begins a dramatic story of expulsion from school, devastating separation of long-time best friends, a marriage threatened with divorce and life-long teen lessons learned leading up to an amazing accomplishment.

That was followed by my wildest idea yet. Why not? Why not share this incredible, family-friendly, heart-tugging story with the world as a motion picture? Hence, “The Scott and Ryan Story”. Currently, we are in pre-production and look to release the movie in 2019. It will include an educational component/lesson plan and a movie link will be sent to public and private high schools throughout the U.S. and Canada.

More recently, we established a local, on-site weekly training program for South Florida area high school students on the campus of Nova Southeastern University - Main campus in Davie, FL.

Lastly, I want to thank all the past and present Academy faculty and graduates for believing in our program. To all the parents who have entrusted us with their precious angels, we are sincerely humbled and honored to serve you all in this way.

So join us we promote the games…and our budding youth sports broadcasters who want to tell the world about them.

Stay tuned, Jaime M. Rivera
