S.A.L.’s programs are offered during after-school hours when many children are left unsupervised or with nothing inspiring to do. Studies have shown these are the peak hours for juveniles to commit crimes, become victims of crimes, and engage in other unsafe behaviors.
Participation in any S.A.L program requires a parent-signed information packet and waiver. To enroll, simply pick up and submit the form at the S.A.L. fitness center.
Due to the size of our staff and facility, as well as the nature of the activities offered, our programs are designed to provide self-motivated youth with positive alternative activities at no cost. We are not an after school, “hangout”, day-care provider, or social rehab center, although we can refer children to other local organizations that better suit those needs, if requested.
All of our current programs are fitness based, focused on developing strength, flexibility, and stamina, and providing improved physical health as well as mental health. Coached by volunteers, our recreational sports programs provide not only improved fitness, but also seek to instill values of Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and good Citizenship. Our most demanding programs, which are competitive in nature, are intended to instill in athletes the Olympic ideals of vision, Commitment, Focus, Discipline, and persistence.

The Napa Sheriff's Activities League is offering a wrestling program for boys and girls ages 8 to 13 years. The program is designed to introduce kids to the sport of wrestling and allow them to participate in some local wrestling tournaments.

The program has become so successful that we have split the practice between elementary and middle school age wrestlers.
Participants should wear sweatpants or shorts (with no zippers or snaps), T shirt and wrestling shoes.
When: The wrestling season typically starts in mid to late November
Times: Tuesdays and Thursdays. Elementary Age Wrestlers begin at 5:30 PM and conclude at 6:30 PM. Middle School Wrestlers begin at 6:30 PM and conclude at 7:30 PM
Location: Locations vary year to year but mostly remain at the Justin High School gymnasium.
The best way to obtain up to date information is to follow us on Facebook. Practice information and photos are posted there.
Sign up your child by simply showing up at a regularly scheduled practice.
The Napa SAL Judo program was created to introduce young
people to Judo. Judo was originally derived from Ju-Jitsu and is a
grappling martial art consisting of dynamic throws, pins, and
submissions. Judo is more famous in its sporting form as seen in the
Olympics. Kids learn structure, discipline, and character. The
following moto is learned: ‘The secret to Judo is like the secret to
life: If you get thrown down 7 times…get up 8 times.’
SAL Judo is for kids from 7-17 and we meet Tuesday and
Thursday from 5:30-6:30 at Skybox CrossFit in American Canyon. Classes
are taught by head instructor Dan (who has over 20 years’ experience teaching)
, his son Josh and daughter Jessica (who both have over 10 years’ experience
teaching), and two deputies from the Sheriff’s Department.
