Skyhawks Named a 2019 Franchise 500 Company!

January 14th, 2019

In Entrepreneur’s 40th annual Franchise 500®, the publication’s highly regarded and competitive list of the top 500 franchises, Skyhawks is excited to announce that Skyhawks Franchise Group has been placed #177 on the list. This news is very meaningful since Skyhawks’ ranking improved by an outstanding 107 places since last year’s ranking.


The Franchise 500® has been considered the top worldwide franchise ranking with over 1,000 franchise companies vying for a spot on the list. Rankings are based on costs and fees, growth rate, financial strength and stability, corporate support, and brand strength. Each franchise is given a cumulative score based on an analysis of more than 150 data points, and the 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the Franchise 500® in ranking order.


“For the second straight year, we are thrilled to make Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500® as one of the best children’s fitness franchises in the world. I’m proud to be a part of an organization which makes a difference in the community through teaching life skills through sports to children and young adults,” says Jason Frazier, President of Skyhawks.


Skyhawks Franchise Group is stronger than it has ever been. In 2018, Skyhawks launched the first international SuperTots franchise in Suzhou, China, which received great feedback from Chinese audiences. In addition, the creation of 27 new domestic territories and increased revenue over the previous five quarters helped to drive one of the largest increases in Entrepreneur’s rankings this year.


Yearly Highlights

- 27 new territories opened in 2018 
- Top overall earner generated $1.47 million 
- Top rookie earner generated $348,000 
- First international master franchise launched in China


Over its 40 years in existence, the Franchise 500® has become both a dominant competitive measure for franchisors and a primary research tool for potential franchisees. Skyhawks Franchise Group’s position on the ranking is a testament to its strength as a franchise opportunity.


With a low initial investment, Skyhawks franchisees see a quick return on their investment while enjoying a flexible work life and receiving exceptional support from the Skyhawks team, which are just a few perks of becoming a member of the Skyhawks family.

Child Safety & Protection Month

November 1st, 2018

Cheer Coach walking through gate with camper

Before you sent your child off Trick or Treating on Halloween, did you have a conversation with them about safety? Perhaps you went through their candy to make sure nothing was tampered with (and to sneak a few pieces for yourself) or maybe you went with them to make sure they were safe under your supervision. The safety of our children is a constant voice in the back of every parent or guardian’s mind. In honor of Child Safety and Protection Month this November, Skyhawks is excited to share a few of our safety policies with you.

Here are a few of the preventative measures we take to keep your children safe at our programs:

1.    The Skyhawks Gate System

At each Skyhawks program, our coaches start and end with our safety process which we call the “Gate System." Every morning before camp, our coaches greet parents and campers in the parking lot as children are dropped off. Coaches guide the kids on to the court or field by funneling them through one of our entry gates. Once the child is through the gate, the coach maintains eye contact with them until they are safe with the rest of the group and the other coach playing a warm-up game. This process is completed in reverse at the end of the day so the coaches can make sure that every child goes home safely with the appropriate parent or guardian. 

2.    Safe Bathroom Breaks

Another policy for Skyhawks programs is to make sure the restrooms are completely empty before allowing children to enter. While the kids are inside, their coach guards the doorway to ensure that no one else enters while the children are using the facilities.

3.    Snack Time Precautions

Here at Skyhawks, we are no strangers to food allergies. We ask parents to let us know ahead of time if their child has any food allergies. However, we know sometimes parents can forget or the information can be delayed, so to make sure we do not have any incidents we have a strict no sharing rule during snack time. We also ask that parents of children with allergies send their camper with Wet Ones antibacterial wipes since they have been scientifically tested to remove food allergens from hands after eating.

4.    Exceptional Staff

Becoming a Skyhawks Coach or Director is an extensive and highly competitive process. If they meet the minimum requirements, interested prospects fill out an application and attend several interviews. Once hired, we take our employees through a rigorous training program to ensure that your children are in the best hands possible.

 

To learn more about our Safety Policies & Procedures, give us a call at (800) 804-3509!
