Acclaimed youth sports franchise company recognized for its affordable startup/career opportunities in golf
NEW YORK, NY – TGA Premier Sports, the go-to brand for introducing children to sports and the nation’s most prolific provider of in-school- and community-based youth golf enrichment and camp programs, has been recognized as a Top Low-Cost Franchises by Entrepreneur. Ranked at No. 100, TGA is among those top franchises on Entrepreneur’s 2021 list that can be started for less than $50,000.
This esteemed compilation acknowledges franchise opportunities available for limited budgets, and the companies are positioned based on the scores they received in Entrepreneur’s 2022 Franchise 500 ranking — a comprehensive analysis that looked at 150+ data points in the areas of costs and fees, size and growth, franchisee support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability.
“Having TGA Premier Sports recognized by Entrepreneur is a testament to our franchise owners who work very hard every day to create a value proposition and infrastructure so kids and families can be introduced to lifetime sports like golf in a fun non-competitive environment,” said Adam Geisler, CEO of Youth Athletes United. “Our owners are passionate about what they do and work very hard to become part of the fabric in their communities building a career delivering introductory golf programming.”
TGA Premier Sports was recently acquired by Youth Athletes United, a 291-unit multi-brand youth sports franchisor behind Little Rookies Baseball, Soccer Stars, Amazing Athletes, TGA Premier Sports, and JumpBunch. TGA Junior Golf, one of the sports platforms under TGA Premier Sports, has become one of the nation’s largest youth golf programs for kids (ages 6-14) reaching over 800,000 to date. It is also the only youth sports franchise company that specializes in golf.
One of the most unique aspects to TGA’s model is how franchise owners become vested into the community. While an owner’s passion might be working in golf with kids, their success is predicated on engaging schools, families, and golf courses getting kids to sign up for the innovative introductory programs.
TGA provides introductory golf enrichment programs at schools, as well as parks and rec centers. Once students go through the introductory programs, they move on through TGA’s Player Pathway to experience the game through local golf course partnerships (225+ nationwide) to bridge participants to more traditional recreational golf programs such as camps, parent/child events, clinics, and national programs like Drive, Chip, and Putt, Youth on Course, LPGA*USGA Girls Golf and PGA Junior League.
