America is a Sports Nation

The growth of the youth sports industry has been fueled by various factors, such as the importance of physical activity for kids, the growing demand for organized sports, and the desire to instill valuable life skills at an early age. These drivers have helped create an industry with a global market size of $37.5 billion(1) in 2022 and an expected growth of $69.4 billion by 2030. In the U.S. alone, the youth sports market is a $19 billion industry(2) that continues to grow(3).

  • Physical Activity: Getting children involved in youth sports leagues increases their physical activity, reducing the chance of multiple health problems, improving grades, and reducing depression(4). Youth sports programs help combat sedentary behaviors and help promote healthier lifestyles through active play.
  • Sports Specialization: Parents are getting their younger kids involved in organized sports to encourage them to develop specialized athletic skills(5) associated with their preferred sport. This targeted development can lead to improved skills and greater future opportunities, such as scholarships and career paths.
  • Life Skills: Involvement in organized kids' sports programs encourages kids to develop key social skills, learn about teamwork, and how to interact with and respect others(6). Character building through youth sports helps build confidence and develop essential traits on and off the field.

More Than Just a Game

The youth sports industry, specifically basketball training, is about more than just a game. Basketball has long been one of America’s favorite participation sports and is enjoyed annually by over 27 million people over the age of six(7). According to a 2022 Parenting Survey by TeamSnap and Project Play(8), basketball is the most popular sport, with around 37% of young athletes playing basketball, followed by soccer and little league baseball. This level of participation in sports leagues has given rise to the demand for specialized training to help athletes develop key skills and gain a competitive edge over their peers while having fun.
