The team and coaches are exhausted and jet-lagged, but we were able to get two photos from the team’s trip to Japan courtesy of “Mac” MORITO Makoto.  Thanks Mac.

Rosters For UYA All-Star and Japanese Teams

Fresh off the plane from Japan, the young men of the Urban Youth Academy brought back a nice memento in the from of the official roster.  We’ve posted here for all to enjoy.  The team had a great trip and acted like the great ambassadors for the Academy that they are. Unfortunately the team faced tough competition in Japan, but this experience can only make them better.

Academy team goes to Japan!


No, it’s not a bad homage to another “Ernest goes to…” movie, the Urban Youth Academy’s high school all-star team heads to Japan tonight.  Yesterday, the team had the opportunity to go to Dodger Stadium and walk on the field before the game. 


Per, “The Urban Youth Academy’s high school All-Star team was introduced on the field before Wednesday’s game. The club is headed to Japan on Friday to play a game against a Japanese high school All-Star team.”


We will try to get more fun details of the team’s trip across the water as the trip progresses.
