The United States Sports Academy is an accredited, sport-specific institution located in Daphne, Alabama. It offers bachelor's, master's and doctoral degree programs as well as certificate programs. Founded in 1972, the Academy has provided its sports programs to more than 60 countries around the world.

Dr. Thomas P. Rosandich founded the Academy in 1972 in response to an inferior performance by the United States Olympic team in the 1972 Munich Games. Athletes were lacking quality coaching and training. The Academy's programs served as an education resource to upgrade coaching through instruction, research and service.

The Academy's campus is also home to the American Sport Art Museum and Archives (ASAMA), which was founded in 1984. The collection contains more than 1,000 works of sport art from world-renown artists, many of whom have been honored by the Academy as Sport Artist of the Year. The Academy is also developing an outdoor Sculpture Park on campus, which is dedicated to celebrating sport with the erection of numerous environmentally friendly sculptures.

Another aspect of the Academy is its Awards of Sport series, also known as its tribute to "The Artist and the Athlete." These awards honor sports figures for their accomplishments and achievements in such things as performance, humanitarian activities, fitness and media.
