NAA Sponsors Pinellas Sheriff’s Soccer Event

NAA’s relationship with the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office is one that we value tremendously. Not only do these officers commit their time and talent to the safety of others, but they are an excellent community partner. Most recently, we joined forces to sponsor the Kickin’ It With Cops event that took place on June 1, 2018. This three hour block was an opportunity for children and teens to engage with deputies in an active setting… and have some fun at the start of summer!
