Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) January 30, 2013
Tony & Nyree Bland knows a thing or two about sports. Both have competed at the highest of levels. Tony had a successful professional football career with the Minnesota Vikings and Nyree was a top ranked Jr. Tennis player. And through it all, they have witnessed first hand the joy and sadness in youth sports.
“Our message is clear,” said Nyree Bland, who co-founded Protential Sports with her husband Tony in 2006, “you can teach life through sports and ensure that respect, honesty, kindness, compassion and integrity provide a foundation for learning, setting goals and working as a team to achieve success”. Tony added that “we are not just about improving athletic skills in children, our main goal is to provide character building skills that will lead these kids to full and prosperous lives”.
With a growing emphasis on the need for children to have 60 minutes of exercise each and every day and First Lady, Michelle Obama, Let’s Move Initiative, youth fitness, healthy eating and sports has received an elevated level of attention from the public and from parents who are earnestly trying to get their children to put video games and television on the shelf and go outside and play.
Solving the problem of childhood obesity won’t be easy, but it is a crisis. Childhood obesity has more than tripled in the past 30 years and the percentage of children in the United States who are obese continues to rise. Protential Sports has developed an after school and summer camp curriculum that encourages physical activity and provides an environment where children are inspired to reach their potential.
Nyree felt the time was right to franchise and added that “franchising our concept and providing the foundation for other adults who generally care about children’s well-being just seemed to make sense,” she added “our franchise provides both a part-time and full-time model, so it works in almost any community in America”.
Protential Sports will initially begin franchising in the Florida market and will be at the Tampa Franchise & Business Opportunity Expo on April 6 -7, at the Tampa Convention Center.
