"Together we are able to teach life skills through sports to children as young as 18 months up to 14 years old.” Chris Stiles, President of Skyhawks Sports Academy
Spokane, WA (PRWEB) January 23, 2014
Skyhawks Sports Academy, the nation’s leading provider of athletic programs for kids 4-12 years old, is announcing its acquisition of SoccerTots, one of the premier child development companies in the US specializing in programming for children ages 18 months through 6 years. Both companies are conveniently headquartered in Spokane, WA. Starting in 2014, Skyhawks and SoccerTots will collectively provide programs to over 75,000 children in 27 US states and 4 Canadian provinces.
With Skyhawks’ and SoccerTots’ shared goal of providing high quality athletic programming for children, this partnership will strengthen both companies’ ability to meet the developmental, skill progression and life skills education needs of children. Skyhawks brings years of experience, tested infrastructure and award-winning programming for grade-school children to the partnership while SoccerTots brings a large, well-established new customer base and quality programming for toddler ages.
“We’ve been looking at strategic opportunities to expand into the younger market and found SoccerTots to be a perfect fit. Our niche is the grade school market and their niche is the pre-school market. Together we are able to teach life skills through sports to children as young as 18 months up to 14 years old,” says Chris Stiles, Skyhawks President, about Skyhawks’ acquisition of SoccerTots.
SoccerTots President, Kent Gold, is equally optimistic about the acquisition. “This is a great opportunity to bring together two Spokane-based companies with national presence that offer quality kids sports programming. Our combined resources will help us continue to increase the number of franchises both nationally and internationally, as well as make our current franchisees stronger.“
This partnership is a beneficial expansion for both companies and will provide a broader selection of athletics to the communities they serve. With the close of this acquisition, Skyhawks will provide one of the industry’s most comprehensive solutions to youth sports programming.
As a premier child development company, SoccerTots understands the nature of kids and has created a curriculum that utilizes their motivation to develop athletic skills and fitness through a series of fun but beneficial games.
