Demand for Youth Sports Leads Skyhawks Sports Academy to Record Growth in 2020
June 21, 2021 // Franchising.com // SPOKANE, Wash. - Skyhawks Sports Academy, the nation’s leading youth sports camp franchise, is set to begin another summer of sports with a record number of participants despite the challenges of 2020.
After the loss of so many youth sports programs in the past year, Skyhawks Sports saw record growth in both franchise development as well as participant registrations. The system added a record 32 franchises in 2020, while participant numbers in the Fall and Winter/Spring Seasons also reached all-time highs. Summer participation is expected to rise by 50 percent as well, making for the largest summer in the franchise’s history.
“The loss of youth sports opportunities across the country last year truly underscored the importance of having that fun, safe outlet to try new sports and interact with other kids,” said Skyhawks Sports Academy President and COO Jason Frazier. “These record participation numbers really validate our franchise growth through the pandemic as well, as entrepreneurs across the country recognize the value of our mission to teach life skills through sports. That’s never been clearer than in the past year.”
The increase in participation coincides with further opportunities, as the franchise added 985 new programs to its schedule across the country. The skill-based sports experience for ages 4 through 12 offers opportunities for kids to choose between roughly a dozen sports.
Skyhawks Sports Academy now offers programs in more than half of the states in the United States, with roughly 200 locations overall. While Skyhawks is no stranger to awards and honors, the franchise growth numbers boosted Skyhawks Sports Academy’s placement by 80 spots in the Entrepreneur 500 list, now up to No. 137 in the 2021 rankings.
