About Us

The Play Right Sports Academy is an after-school program for boys and girls from K through 12th grade in the Battle Creek, Albion, Marshall, Jackson and greater Calhoun County area.

The program runs three days a week for nine months each year.

The core principles are desire , dedication, and discipline. Through these principles, students will be encouraged to have the desire to be their best; dedication to hard work; and the discipline to make good decisions on and off the playing fields.
