Thank you for your interest in the Youth Hoops concept. As founder, I share in your excitement of using basketball instruction as a vehicle to touch our youth, on and off the court. Youth Hoops is a mobile, fundamentals-based, basketball training academy concept that encourages kids to work their craft, but more importantly, to be great human beings.

Youth Hoops offers five flagship basketball camps: ball handling, shooting, offensive moves, defense and inside play/rebounding. Each camp consists of coach talk, warm-up, multiple skill development stations, offensive/defensive concepts, and controlled scrimmaging. We aim to provide a fun, safe, and instructive environment for kids. We do this with low, coach-to-camper ratios and certified coaches.

It is our goal to provide support and services to you with the highest level of honesty, integrity, and professionalism. Youth Hoops takes relationships we form with our franchisees very seriously; it is the foundation of our success. Comprehensive training and ongoing support will keep you and your staff knowledgeable and competitive at start-up and beyond.

We are here to teach and encourage you as you create a wonderful opportunity for yourself. You can experience the same excitement and fulfillment we have when you become part of our Youth Hoops family! Join us in changing our youth for the better.

John Berry
President & CEO


Our Mission:
Youth Hoops is a mobile, fundamentals-based, basketball training academy concept that believes teaching kids how to play the “right way” is important, but more importantly, it’s critical to be a great person!

Youth Hoops want to be that pillar in the community, where our youth gets expert, fundamentals-based basketball instruction and valuable life lessons. In addition, we also want to serve the purpose of offering our franchisees a business model, where there’s flexibility, freedom, and independence.

About Our Locations:
Youth Hoops locations range from rented school gymnasiums, recreational centers, churches, and playgrounds. These (local) locations are known within the community, as they are oftentimes used for recreational games.

As a Youth Hoops franchisee, these locations nullify the need to build out a facility or get into a long-term lease agreement thus saving you money. This makes it less expensive to get going. And ultimately, makes the Youth Hoops concept truly mobile.

The Youth Hoops concept has proven effective all over the world, including North Carolina, West Virginia, Minnesota, Texas and overseas (in China and Dubai).

We refer to our process as a “matching process” because both parties need to get to know one another over a period of time in order to decide if there’s a “match”. The EggBred business model is a fun and exciting opportunity, but it’s not right for everyone nor is everyone right for it. Our 7-step matching process is key for a successful, long-term partnership.

The Perfect Business:
Out of 10 owners, we expect four will be husband and wife management teams, three will be manage-the-manager, and three will be owner operated by individuals who have a passion for teaching youth basketball and truly making a difference on and off the court.

Owner Operator:
This individual has unique and personal interests, with a real passion for work and providing positive experiences for others. This individual is dedicated to the overall well-being of our youth, on and off the basketball court. They have the desire to work closely with basketball campers, parents, and staff throughout life of business. A salary, commission, or bonus position can be enjoyed by this owner. He/she may also employ staff member(s) to manage the business. This provides flexibility to come and go when desired, or as schedule permits.

This individual prefers to manage the business, NOT operate the business. This managing process is defined by having an office, creating a flexible schedule for themselves. In addition, this individual can utilize his/her sales & marketing, operations, and administrative experience. This individual will often recruit a spouse, partner, family member or, in many cases, prefer the traditional methods of assembling a team to grow the business. This form of ownership yields a strategic opportunity to manage multiple units.

Husband/Wife Management:
The husband/wife teams use complementary skills and share in the division of labor. Generally, one spouse will enjoy sales & marketing, delivery of basketball camps, and “front-of-house” responsibilities. The other spouse will enjoy other “day-to-day” duties such as operations, finance, accounting, registrations, class management, etc. Both partners, collectively, will represent a unified management.

Multi-unit Operator:
This type of operator may own and operate several businesses, as they may be looking to diversify and complement their portfolio. They are very well-seasoned basketball camp directors and understand what it takes to be successful in business. Like the “Manage-the-Manager”, this individual prefers to manage the business, NOT operate the business on a local level.

Unique Investment Parameters:
Youth Hoops offers exciting investment parameters that virtually no other basketball training academy can offer:

-Low initial investment
-Limited hours
-Limited employees
-Flexible ownership
-Simple operations
-Year-round seasonality
-Multi-unit opportunities
-Minimal inventory

Absolutely not! Our core values are that our partners are enjoying the balance of spending time with family and children throughout the week. Franchisees have flexibility to be Owner Operators, Manage-the-Manager, or Husband/Wife teams sharing day-to-day management duties

What makes Youth Hoops a special investment?

Our secret sauce to Youth Hoops is a personal lifestyle investment that offers our franchisees the opportunity to be in the Sports and Recreation industry with three dominating characteristics: affordable startup costs, its limited hours, and its special niche in the youth basketball camp category.

Do I need prior experience in the Sports and Recreation industry?

Absolutely not! If you’re gainfully employed, our business model has been designed to supplement, transition, replace, or completely break away. Our Owner Operators and Husband/Wife teams will enjoy paying themselves for the hours and/or a salary that they would otherwise be paying their part or full-time staff. This increases our owner’s discretionary cash flow from business.
