Skyhawks Sports Academy, powered by Stack Sports, the nation’s leading youth sports camp franchise continued to experience massive growth due to burgeoning enrollment numbers in its sports programs and increased unit sales in 2022.
Known best for their skill-based camps, after-school programs, classes, and sports leagues for kids from 18-months old to age 14, Skyhawks credits its growth in 2022 to increasing consumer demand with a 20 percent increase in enrollment from the previous year.
