With the TGA franchise model, and how they quickly guide you through the necessary steps to develop programs, it allowed us to hit the ground running
Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) November 19, 2018
TGA Premier Sports (TGA), a leading youth sports organization specializing in introductory and recreational sports programs, welcomes its latest multi-franchise expansion in California and Virginia.
Since 2003, TGA has been impacting schools, youth and families nationwide with its innovative youth sports curriculum. TGA includes 118 franchises across the country and Canada, and over 875,000 kids have participated.
Kevin Oliver, a former software and technology executive, has acquired three TGA franchises, Golf, Tennis, and Team Sports, in Los Angeles covering the areas of Long Beach, Seal Beach, and Los Alamitos.
“I have been an active sports enthusiast my entire life with an entrepreneurial side that together is the perfect combination for TGA,” Oliver said. “I am very excited to bring these programs to area schools and community centers and positively impact the lives of children in our neighborhoods through sports – the same way it had an effect on me at their age.”
In Fairfax County, Va., the USTA Mid-Atlantic section continues to expand its Master Franchise. The new franchise will give them impact on youth across eight markets. Alex Chan, who has been a chapter director since 2010, will lead the new franchise. He said the benefit of the TGA model is implementing an effective infrastructure.
“With the TGA franchise model, and how they quickly guide you through the necessary steps to develop programs, it allowed us to hit the ground running,” Chan said. “As we have continued to expand, we recognize that schools have proven to be the perfect venue to introduce youth in the masses to the sports of tennis, golf, and team sports. TGA developed the perfect platform to do just that.”
Schools and their students ages 3-13 in the new markets will have multiple-sport opportunities in Golf, Tennis, Floor Hockey, Lacrosse, Ultimate Frisbee and more through TGA’s innovative platform.
TGA’s (Teach, Grow, Achieve) unique program delivers introductory youth sports directly at schools and community centers through before- or after-school enrichment programs. Schools and families nationwide have embraced the program because of its innovative station-based curriculum that combines athletics, academics and life-skills, and because it presents a safe and healthy environment. Included in the unparalleled sports experience is student participation in interactive STEAM Labs that allow them to explore and relate concepts such as gravity, aerodynamics and simple machines through the sports they are playing.
TGA’s youth sports model has become a leader in the youth sports industries. The governing body of tennis, the United States Tennis Association (USTA), quickly recognized the traction TGA had in schools and joined forces to help TGA develop the fast-growing model for tennis. In addition, with its new Team Sports franchise, TGA has aligned with the American Development Model (ADM) created by the U.S. Olympic Committee, which includes skill progression and physical fitness creating a pathway toward an active and healthy lifestyle.
