Skyhawks Sports Academy, the nation’s leading youth sports camp franchise, begins 2022 with a major honor. The Spokane-based brand was again listed in this year’s Entrepreneur Franchise 500, placing No. 156 overall and earning the top spot among brands offering children’s fitness programs.

This recognition comes after a record-breaking 2021 for Skyhawks Sports Academy, which offers roughly a dozen different sports programs for kids aged 2 to 14 and set system-wide enrollment records for each season of the year.


“We saw unprecedented success in 2021 and earning one of franchising’s top honors will help us carry that momentum into 2022,” said Skyhawks President and COO Jason Frazier. “Our mission is ‘Teaching Life Skills Through Sports’ and we were able to help more kids than ever before, thanks to the work of our staff, our coaches, and our franchisees. Their commitment is what allows us to meet the passion and interest of the families who bring their kids into our programs. I’m excited to have those efforts rewarded with another strong appearance in the Franchise 500 rankings and a best-in-category designation.”


The Entrepreneur Franchise 500 represents one of the most competitive measures for franchise brands and one of the most useful research tools for potential franchisees. Brands are evaluated on various factors including costs, fees, size and growth, brand strength, and financial stability.


The No. 156 placement represents a steady presence in rankings over the past several years, as the 2022 ranking also represented the fourth-straight year of Skyhawks Sports Academy placing in the top half of the Franchise 500. Thanks to that success, Skyhawks earned additional rankings of No. 139 among Fastest-Growing Franchises and No. 12 among Franchises for Less than $50,000.


Now with roughly 200 locations across the United States, Skyhawks Sports Academy is preparing to continue its growth in 2022, doing so through further franchise expansion and providing even more value to its participants, staff, and partners across the country.
