Wrapping up its second season, the USSA TEAM Academy continued to provide opportunities for high
school athletes across all sports at the national team or top development level. The mission of the USSA
TEAM Academy is to support the USSA’s Best in the World athletic vision by promoting educational
and character development through the integration of more mobile, flexible and vigorous academic
programs. As elite athletes with extensive training and competition schedules, Academy students
are growing in the cutting edge world of blended learning. The students are based at the Center of
Excellence in Park City and at the Olympic Training Center in Lake Placid.
What TEAM Academy Means to Me
Teen Mac Bohonnon came up through the USSA’s
Elite Aerial Development Program and moved on
to the USSA TEAM Academy. Less than a month
before the Olympics, he scored a stunning first-ever
World Cup podium to make the team and go on to
finish fifth, leading Team USA in freestyle aerials.
“TEAM Academy enabled me to proceed with
the support I needed as an athlete. Previously, my
mom was in charge of my online education. TEAM
Academy gave me the care I needed. The curriculum
was great. When I did have trouble with any school
or balancing athletics and academics, the teaching
staff at TEAM Academy, the integration with USSA
and the coaches helped me balance my training
perfectly. I never fell too far behind or had to stop
training because I didn’t understand things in school.
I was always supported in the fashion that I needed.
Next year I am planning to go to the University of
Utah. I will do about a half of a normal course
load. I am definitely looking forward to that.”
