NAofA BUSINESS MODEL

You may be wondering how can you be successful with so much competition already established within your community? Perhaps you have seen signage around your communities offering competitive Youth Sports Leagues, there are at least 1 or 2 Parks and Recreation Centers within each of your cities, several YMCA’s, single-sport “mom & pop” organizations and maybe more.

The National Academy of Athletics isn’t just another one of those Youth Sports Organizations trying to compete for business- we are ALL OF THOSE organizations wrapped into one! We ARE the sports programs the Parks and Recreation Centers offer. We ARE the ones running the Leagues, (or preparing the Leagues to have a great season!) We ARE running the programs at the YMCA’s! We ARE the Physical Education instructors at schools!

We aren’t competing against them, we’ve developed a business model that offers an easier, better and more profitable SOLUTION to all these types of organizations. We’ve created a business model that’s so simple to master and implement that in just a few weeks you will be up and running and you’ll feel completely confident running your business. Furthermore, we’re here to show you the ropes, so an excitement about your new endeavor is key, but you don’t need prior experience running your own business.

WHO IS THIS BUSINESS GREAT FOR

Our Area Captains come from a wide range of backgrounds, from moms and dads looking for a fun job that involve sports and kids, to corporate professionals looking for more freedom to stay at home, Realtors with free time to do something AWESOME to give back to their communities, to teachers looking for additional income during summer months, spring breaks, holiday breaks and easily managed Physical Education programs during the school year,

We positively impact children’s lives on and off the field through our trademarked teaching curriculums, NAofA Certified coaches, and youth sports curriculum designed to teach fundamentals, fitness and FUN!

ABOUT THE NAofA

Our sport programs for kids are specifically designed to help players of all abilities. The goal is to have tons of fun, learn sport-specific skills, and gain confidence on and off the field. We teach children about success, failure, and what it means to be part of a team.

Teaching Youth Sports the Way They Were Meant to be Taught

It is the mission of the National Academy of Athletics to provide Youth Sports Programs to community children throughout the year. During the school year we work with schools to fulfill their Physical Education requirements mandated by the Department of Education. Instead of kids standing around outside with an English or History teacher, our team steps in to instruct actual Physical Education programs for kids. The NAofA sports programs for kids put the fun back into PE! Teacher also appreciate not having the responsibility of teaching PE and favor the time to work on their lesson plans or grade papers. It’s a true win-win!

During the school year we work with municipalities to also provide NAofA sport programs for kids during breaks, holidays, and for teacher work days. This offers parents the ability to leave their kids with us while they may still need to go to work. It offers kids a great way to get active, stay healthy and have fun during their school breaks. Parents can either find our camps at their local Community Center or right at their school.

Partnering with Municipalities that Need Our Help

Municipalities through out the state of California have partnered with the NAofA to provide the children in their communities with the best sports programs out there! By partnering with the NAofA we offer these cities a solution to provide a local Area Captain, the best coaches, a wide variety of sports to choose from, and an easier way for them to balance their staffing and budgets. During Summers you’ll find NAofA sports programs for kids at over 100 locations.

Youth Leagues value the support the NAofA provides. When we partner with a league, we provide training courses for the volunteer parents, coaches, and referees. Our courses get everyone involved working together. Volunteer parents, whom often have never coached or managed a team before, become much more confident and are much more successful at keeping kids excited about playing. The NAofA will also take over the entire management of a League for schools and municipalities that are in need.

Sports Should be FUN for Kids

NAofA sport programs for kids are designed to provide children with a safe, fun, and educational youth sports experience. We offer a wide variety of programs ranging from our one-day clinics to week-long camps and so many sports from which to choose.

In a short time we have grown from 3 locations to over 100. We continuously receive requests from cities to bring our programs their way and we are doing our best to meet the demand. It is our mission to bring our quality youth sports programs to children across the nation.

THE YOUTH SPORTS INDUSTRY

Youth sports is a huge business, with more than 60 million participants annually in the U.S., according to a study by the National Institutes of Health, and it generates billions of dollars in revenue. It will just keep getting bigger during the next few decades, as some research estimates the population of kids to reach more than 80 million by 2030.

Regardless of the economy, sports are among the few things parents and kids can’t live without. Parents know the importance of getting their kids involved in sports. The chance to be around other kids, have fun and be active is vital to every child. It is also vital to parents that need an activity for their children while they are at work. The NAofA is an affordable solution as our programs are always priced according to our Community Partners needs. We do not want kids left behind due to cost.

REQUEST INFORMATION

YOUR TERRITORY

Based on years of experience and data that we’ve collected, we have a very accurate business model designed to make your territory successful. We develop successful territories by researching your target audience within your zip codes and determining your target Community Partners within your cities.

Your territory is configured based on the number of kids (i.e., population) under the age of 14 in your surrounding area and the territory’s ability to support multiple Community Partners that can bring year-round revenue to your business.

A successful territory is created when we are able to successfully contract Community Partners that also see the value in finding a WIN-WIN-WIN. The Community Partner gets to offer our programs to their community, the negotiate price makes the programs affordable to their community, the negotiated price allows the NAofA to service the Community with our AWESOME programs and make a profit.

Your roll as an Area Captain is to service your Community Partners, make the entire experience with Parents incredibly easy and affordable, and to make sure your Coaches are managed and trained to provide your kids with the BEST YOUTH SPORTS PROGRAMS available.

YOUR BUSINESS EARNING POTENTIAL

Your territory earning potential is truly dependent on your effort and your ability to follow our model. The team at the National Academy of Athletics will provide all of the tools necessary for you to make your territory profitable. Results are largely determined by how many Community Partners you acquire, how aggressively you market your programs to the community, and how well you oversee your coaches to make sure they are using the NAofA signature teaching methods, and that the feedback from children is nothing but FUN and LAUGHTER.

To request a copy of our free Territory Report, and answer any questions you may have, please fill out the Territory Request Form and we’ll follow up with more information soon.

Area Captains make money primarily through the registration fees paid by participants to play in our leagues, camps, clinics, school PE programs and after-school and holiday break programs. Our territory owners build market share by acquiring contracts from each type of Community Partner.  When you work with a variety of Community Partners you are able to market different types of programs to the same database of participants. You will develop a loyal following to different types of programs that you will offer throughout the year. In addition to registration fees, our Area Captains generate supplemental revenue from fulfilling the role as a Camp Director or Physical Education Specialist at any of the programs you choose. This can add thousands of dollars to your net each month.

The initial investment to set up your Partnership Agreement will range from as low as $38,000 to $85,000 depending on the size of territory purchased. Price can also vary based on how established the territory is. We have several territories currently available for sale that already have Community Partnership contracts in place.

PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT VS CORPORATE PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT

For the right person, we offer a Corporate Partnership Agreement in which you only need to pay a deposit on your territory. This 3 year agreement will allow you to have the first right of refusal on the territory, and allow you to make monthly payments based on your earnings. For those who follow our business model and put in the hard work to establish relationships and grow your business, you’ll find your territory will be paid off in no time. This way you can launch your business follow our proven business model and receive all the support you need to be successful.

In addition to the price of buying your territory, there are other costs that you would need to budget when you open your business. For instance, although Corporate pays to market the brand, you may need to spend some additional money on marketing fees. Although we INCLUDE a full supply of NAofA logoed  equipment in your business in a box, you will occasionally need to replenish your equipment. You will have insurance costs, software usage fees, training expenses, etc. This will all be laid out for you so there is no guess-work to creating your Business Budget.
