About UsClick here for full brochure!
Hi-Five Sports has been enriching the lives of children for over 30 years! We are a family founded business that looked at youth sports options and thought… this could be a lot better! So, we’ve been innovating recreational youth sports ever since by growing and enhancing our programming, new technology, and our state of the art Hi-Five Sports Zone and Murphy Mart concepts. We have some of the largest summer sports camps in our areas and year-round programming is just the tip of the iceberg. Between the over one dozen sports the children 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 and offer options for children of all ages. Options include preschool sports classes, leagues, camps, before/after school enrichment, birthday parties and so much more. We take sports seriously but we always say “you need a good sense of humor” too.
Hi-Five Franchising launched in late 2015 to ensure Hi-Five becomes a household name in Youth Sports. Now is your chance to GET IN THE GAME and become part of the growing Hi-Five Family!
Looking for New and Different? Hi-Five Sports Zone!
The Hi-Five Sports Zone is your own small, sports center. At under 20,000 square feet, you get to set up where families live and shop. You run all our fun-filled classes, leagues and camps plus amazing sports birthday parties- complete with our mascot Murphy and turning “Murphy coins” into party prizes.
This great resource to your community scales fast, allows others to rent and connects with schools. We have a whole community launch plan to create the kind of splash at your grand opening that leads to program and birthday party sales right from day one. You get an exclusive territory that gives you opportunities to grow outside the building.
