The Sportball curriculum combines the best developmentally appropriate coaching methods with our educationally based methodology, to meet the needs of children and foster an active and healthy lifestyle. The result is a highly successful sports instruction program that is popular with kids and parents alike.

Over the years Sportball has provided thousands of children with an introduction to a range of sports and social skills, along with a newfound confidence to help succeed on and off the field. At Sportball, we believe we can make a difference … a difference in the lives of children and young professionals. We have long subscribed to the quote attributed to Forest Witcraft which reads:

Sportball began with just 3 children and a single location and now has several hundred corporate and franchise locations in North America. Sportball began franchising in 2005 and our franchise owners are now running successful businesses in Canada, the United States and now in Singapore.
