Overtime Athletics strives to be a nationwide leader in providing youth programming services to elementary-aged children. The company specializes in after-school programs, birthday parties, summer camps, leagues, and clinics. It has a perfect game plan designed to motivate young people and encourage them to embrace a healthy lifestyle.

Overtime Athletics hinges its services on participation and fun. This philosophy may have seen Overtime Athletics raise more excited kids who value sports while incorporating discipline, teamwork, and organization for all participants. Overtime Athletics is aware that many kids stay glued to their television or computer for the better part of their days. While this can be detrimental to their health, it may also affect your income as a parent because you have to get a “babysitter” to watch over them—Overtime Athletics may solve some of these problems.

Overtime Athletics was founded in 2003 and began franchising in 2016. Since beginning to franchise, it has opened several franchises across the United States.
