"One Family, One Mission"


Union Athletic Association is a non-profit organization that was started 7 years ago by a group of Union Academy coaches and parents that wanted "our" athletes to participate in sports together beginning at a young age.  Our goal then, as it continues to be, is to prepare them for athletics at the varsity level as well as to promote a sense of unity as they move through their middle and high school years.  UAA offers a wide range of sports for students in Kindergarten to 8th grade. These sports include cheer, football (tackle and flag), basketball, softball, baseball, wrestling, and track.  We are looking to add a soccer league in the near future.

Our teams participate against other booster programs in the county as well as in All-Star tournaments for basketball,baseball, softball, and new in 2019, track.  Over the years we have seen an increase in our successes with many teams being recognized as county champions and having several athletes participate in elite levels of play at the middle and high school levels. Our board members continue to keep our initial focus at the center of all decisions that we make.
