Youth Sports Business Keeps Kids Active During Coronavirus
TGA Premier Sports develops programming, virtual classes designed for at-home and schools
April 02, 2020 // Franchising.com // Los Angeles, CA - TGA Premier Sports values the health and safety of the entire community, students, their families, and coaches. With most schools around the country closed and programs postponed, if not cancelled for the rest of the school year, TGA is eager to continue serving local communities during these difficult times to keep a sense of normalcy. In an effort to help everyone Keep Playing!® while families are sheltering at home, TGA will be sharing online sports content and lessons designed for at-home use and school engagement with virtual classes.
The unprecedented events related to COVID-19 have affected everyone, drastically reducing physical activity and perhaps mental stimulation for children locked out of their classrooms. Teachers around the country have rallied to create E-learning lessons, parents are now educators and perhaps working from home as well.
TGA’s mission during this time is to engage students and families together creating an environment similar to what they experience during the after-school enrichment programs. The focus will center on the individual sports of golf and tennis through STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) academic lessons, skill development and activities that get kids moving.
“Social distancing and staying in place at home are short-term realities but that doesn’t mean we want to sit idle with how youth and families experience sports during this time,” says Joshua Jacobs, TGA’s founder and CEO. “For 17 years, TGA curriculum has been executed in tight spaces and we have an opportunity to serve our communities through similar programming in a home-based environment. Our corporate staff, franchise owners, and coaches are committed to working together to churn out existing and new content repurposed in an online platform for families everywhere.”
Over the next month, TGA will be sharing this new online golf and tennis programming with their families and students nationwide through email, blogs, and online. This includes video-lessons from coaches, videos of kids playing the games, warm up exercise videos, games to play solo or with the family, all to put sports skill practice into play. In addition, TGA will provide academic worksheets related to these sports and STEAM that the kids can do at home with minimal resources.
These fun individual sports related activities, many from TGA’s highly acclaimed curriculum and student handbook, can be used by all families keeping young athletes' brains engaged and playing. See sample content below.
