Pizza, Michael Jordan and Hi-Five Sports. We’re a huge part of Chicago tradition dating back to 1990. We’re a family founded business that looked at public sport and volunteer programs and thought… this could be a lot better! So we’ve been innovating recreational youth sports to work with younger ages, in over a dozen sports, making it fun and filling the needs of parents, schools and communities. We have some of the largest sports summer camps in our areas. Between the over one dozen sports the kids play and the novel themes, events and contests – we’re number one in multi-sport summer camp fun for all kids’ ages.
We look at youth recreational sports as something for the whole family. We call this youth sports entertainment. And just like any good entertainment it needs to be full of fun and challenging. We have a great balance of fun and fundamentals. We take sports seriously but we always say “you need a good sense of humor” too.
And this formula doesn’t just work in Chicagoland. We’re in multiple states in over a dozen cities and growing. Hi-Five Franchising launched in early 2016 to ensure Hi-Five becomes a household name in Youth Sports. Now is your chance to GET IN THE GAME!

Existing Rec Facility Model
Make “Dead Time” into Prime Time!
Summers and school days tend to be the slowest times for recreation facilities. We’ve built programs that turn off hours into big revenue. We’re multi-sport, summer camp experts. We have over 25 continual years providing the best summers any sport loving kid can have. It’s not a fluke. We’re operating in four states at a dozen locations.
Those camps come in great for winter and spring breaks and days off of school. Beyond that, we have four different sports for tots that you can run on school days to bring in kids ages 3-5.
Of course, we have flag football and basketball leagues. All these programs feed summer camp.
