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 Spectrum (formerly Bright House Networks) in Orlando, FL.

From there, we were extremely proud to premiere 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 severely strained and life-long teen lessons learned leading up to an amazing accomplishment… the “YSN Show with Scott and Ryan”.

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 2021. It will include an educational component/lesson plan and a movie file will be sent to public and private high schools throughout the U.S. and Canada. https://ysnfilms.com

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.

In the fall of 2020, we will proudly launch simultaneously the YSN Sports Broadcasting Academy On-Demand course and the Teen Sports Broadcasting Network (T.S.P.N.).

Lastly, I want to thank all the sports and business professionals, graduates and parents for believing in our program. I am 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
