Overtime Athletics - Franchise Information
Sports and kids – what better match is there? When Chris Whelan and Chris Horich teamed up to develop the Overtime Athletics concept, they had a feeling theirs was a winning business model.
Both athletes growing up – Chris & Chris have decades of years coaching College, High School, & Youth players under their belts – their vision to provide structured after school athletic programs and summer camps where kids can perform, compete and just plain have fun started strong and continues to thrive.
Here is How Overtime Athletics (OTA) Works
As a franchisee, you enjoy a number of advantages that a stand-alone, independent start-up does not. You begin with the accumulated experience, know-how, business practices and operating plan that come with a franchise.
As a franchisee, you enjoy name-brand recognition and a network of support provides an immediate and distinct competitive edge over the independent, stand-alone business. You can avoid that costly trial-and-error period that causes so many problems for start-up businesses. As a franchisee, you’ll “hit the ground running.”
The Overtime Athletics opportunity gives you the ready-made framework within which to build a successful business.
- Community needs exist all across the country for quality after school programs, summer camps, birthday parties, clinics, & leagues.Franchisees develop partnerships with schools, facilities, & community organizations to run classes, camps, & events.
- Franchisees implement the 'OTA System' to build a team that will provide high quality youth activities. This system includes our signature curriculum and our proprietary software
- Participants have a FUN, high energy, and safe experience while learning a little bit along the way.
- You develop long term relationships that build your business
Ready, Set, Go OTA
It’s sad but true – far too many kids either sit in front of a television or computer after school and during the summer. And these days, when most households require two incomes, this form of “baby-sitting” is all too common.
So, what if there was a program that offered structured after school physical activity within a school or related facility where kids can get a healthy dose of physical activity at a reasonable price?
That is the OTA concept in a nutshell and for the past 15 years this business model has proven to be a hit in more than 500 elementary schools nationwide and with an annual 25,000 kids. And the popularity among parents is extraordinary because the OTA way not only provides children with a positive sports experience and knowledge about team work, it also teaches early healthy habits that can have lifetime benefits. The kids just think the activities are fun – they don’t realize these carefully crafted programs have other merits…but their parents sure do!
How it works is simple. OTA franchisees build relationships with schools, PTAs and related educational facilities, so there is an automatic built-in customer base. It is our experience that schools hosting OTA after school programs or summer camps realize the value of an optional activity that parents can sign up for their kids to participate in.
The OTA after school programs and summer camps are designed for kids age 5 to 13, but some OTA franchises also offer a preschool program for 4-year-olds. We can help an OTA franchisee figure out the best programs, camps and clinics for their particular territory.
