The PAA organization was formed over 60 years ago to provide sports opportunities for children. PAA now serves more than 4000 participants each year in the Gig Harbor and Key Peninsula area for children K - 12th grade. Our Mission is to allow all children to participate regardless of skill level, experience or athletic ability. Participation is the key and we require that all of our coaches adhere to this "spirit of participation". The developmental stages of children and concern for safety and positive self image are clearly reflected in our program. It is very important to our program that children have the opportunity to grow, learn and come away from the game feeling positive and have the desire to play again.
