Sports Hub Coaching helping kids get sporty

Most parents in this modern era complain that children no longer get outside and play like they used to.

Sports Hub Coaching is a company dedicated to not only changing that but enabling children to gain a foundation in various sports as well.

Henk Oosthuizen explains that the business is a broad-based, foundation phase sports coaching programme that coaches boys and girls aged 4-9 years old.

Sports Hub aims to create confident and competent sports players that will enjoy the sport for life.

Our aim is to ensure that each student that we coach has age-appropriate competence and proficiency in sports like Tag Rugby, Netball, Soccer, Hockey, Tennis and Cricket.

He says that for him, the biggest challenge is gaining permission to offer Sports Hub in schools. Although once in, it is consistently one of the most popular activities he says.

Ooosthuizen adds that he loves being in a business where he can do work that has a profound social impact on various different levels.

This includes not only the students that are coached but also the young coaches that are empowered through owning their first business.

The true growth potential for Sports Hub lies in a franchising model, as I believe there is room in SA for more than 250 franchises. To achieve this, I need to convert my coaching manuals, marketing material and order forms into a Web-based cloud setup.

This will enable me to give any new franchisee a turnkey business that can be managed from a tablet...I would lik an additional investment to provide a seed fund to the first 50 franchises over a period of three years at R100 000 per franchise.

He says this would enable franchisees to have funds to run their business while working on signing up their first schools.
