Our After School Sports classes are the foundation of 549 Sports. We offer fun organized sports activities that take place right after school. Our After School Sports curriculums are designed to teach kids the fundamentals of sports in a FUN, dynamic and fast paced environment. Our dedicated staff is passionate about helping kids grow as athletes and as people. Good sportsmanship, positivity, kindness, and teamwork is always emphasized at 549 Sports programs.
Our club program is designed to help players develop on and off the court. We currently offer teams at the A, B, & C level for both boys and girls grades 3rd - 8th. Try-outs are held on a quarterly basis and we do not require year long commitments. Typically the seasons will run for about 11 weeks, with 20-22 practices and 8 games guaranteed.
Summer & Intersession Camps - Our action packed camps are loaded with up tempo games, exciting drills, contests & games. Our camps are open to both both boys and girls. Whether you are a newcomer to the sport or a top level player, our camps are designed to help young players develop their skills.

Mike & Laura Rausa met while playing intercollegiate basketball, Laura at Point Loma Nazarene University and Mike at UCDavis. It’s a story of love and basketball. Mike and Laura have over 20+ years of experience in youth sports programming. They know what it takes to inspire the next generation. They continue to share the lessons they’ve learned through sports with the participants of their programs. They seek to bring a new level of quality to the youth sports industry. In a world with over worked kids that are all about winning something was lost. Sports has always been a great platform for building confidence, developing friendships as well as building up your skill set in a specific sport. So lets combine competition with fun.
We seek to develop players not only on the court but off the court as well. Our curriculums are designed to help each participant learn in a creative dynamic environment. They’ll learn leadership skills, communication skills as well as develop sport specific fundamentals. We keep after school activities fun all while providing an organized fast paced class.
We want our participants to:
1. GET HEALTHY
2. LEARN NEW SKILLS
3. TRY THEIR ABSOLUTE BEST
4. GAIN CONFIDENCE
AND MOST IMPORTANTLY HAVE FUN!
549 Sports is about inspiring youth and teaching them life lessons through sports such as commitment, dedication, hard work, confidence, leadership & teamwork. We chose our name based on a group of individuals that embody these attributes. They continued to strive to reach new levels even though they were seemingly at the pinnacle of their careers. The 50 40 90 club is an elite group of 7 NBA players (as of 2018) that have completed an entire NBA season shooting 50% from the field, 40% from behind the arc and 90% from the free throw line. Given that only 7 players have ever done this it truly speaks to the commitment, hard work and dedication it took to join this club. The inspiration of 549 Sports is based on striving to be your absolute best. At 549 we try to instill the belief that anything is possible if you put your full heart and effort into it.
