Mamba Sports Academy is a unique performance center. Unique because its five-star facility and expert staff attracts pro players across every major sport. Unique because it specializes in training grade school, middle school, and high schooler athletes. Unique because it focuses on purposeful training.
It was no surprise, then, this past spring, when a teenaged Alysaa Jackson walked through the doors. Jackson, a student at Westlake High, had her sights set on earning a spot on the school’s varsity basketball team. After a consultation, Jackson signed up for basketball and strength and conditioning training.
MSA had a plan to get Jackson where she wanted to go, no doubt, but to execute it would require a lot of work from the young hooper. Safe to say, Jackson had the Mentality. After months of work with bball skills trainer Hannah Ascension—who constantly reminded Jackson that “Rome wasn’t built in a day”—and the performance team—“they pushed me to the max, which I loved”—Jackson is now a member of the Westlake Warriors.
We are happy for Jackson, we are proud we played a role in her goal getting accomplished, and we can’t wait to continue to work with her and watch what she does next.
In the meantime, if you, your daughter or son, or someone you know is interested in learning more about MSA’s clinics, camps, and programs, please, visit this web page, shoot us a message, or call 1 (844) 472-1476.
Oh, and Jackson’s advice to other aspiring athletes? “Do not give up, even though you have a hard day and lots of other priorities, you have to put in the work and the time to get better.”
She def has that Mamba Mentality.
