Support the LES Sports Summer Camp
Thrive Sports proudly supports the LES Sports Academy. 100% of any donations made on this page goes towards their bowling leagues, summer camps, flag football programs, and other sports activities for children in our home community.
Born and raised in the Lower East Side, Franky Alameda founded the LES Sports Academy in 2010 to help under-served youth like he was to lead healthy, safe, smart lives through sports. Deeply rooted in the neighborhood, the Academy helps youth overcome obesity and teen violence by providing skills for success in the classroom, playing-field, and in life.
Affiliated with both MLB RBI and the Jr. NBA, LESSA provides affordable after-school, evening, and weekend youth sports programs. After losing his job due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Franky expanded the LES Sports Academy in 2021 with the launch of a seven-weeks summer camp for 80 students featuring baseball, basketball, football, and soccer.

New Yorker of the Week: Franky Alameda
By Pat Kiernan for NY-1: “After three months without a practice Franky Alameda and his team of thirty kids are back on the field. … ‘I take kids that don’t have parents, or they live with grandparents, or they don’t have dads, I come out there play with them, practice with them, warm up with them, so I fit into a lot of those role models.'”
