Premier after-school sports program expands with golf, tennis and team sports in Los Angeles
Long Beach, CA – TGA Premier Sports (TGA), a leading youth sports organization specializing in introductory and recreational sports programs, announces its latest multi-franchise expansion in Long Beach, California.
Kevin Oliver, a former software and technology executive, has acquired three TGA franchises, Golf, Tennis, and Team Sports, which will cover the areas of Long Beach, Seal Beach, and Los Alamitos just south of Los Angeles.
Since 2003, TGA has been impacting schools, youth, and families nationwide with its innovative youth sports curriculum. This now includes 19 franchises in the Los Angeles/Southern California area, which has had over 25,000 kids participate with no signs of slowing down.
“I have been an active sports enthusiast my entire life with an entrepreneurial side that together, is the perfect combination for TGA,” said Oliver. “I am very excited to bring these programs to area schools and community centers and positively impacting the lives of children in our neighborhoods, through sports, the same way it had an effect on me at their age.”
Schools and youngsters ages 3-13 will now have multiple sport opportunities to participate in Golf, Tennis, Floor Hockey, Lacrosse, and Ultimate Frisbee® to name a few through TGA’s innovative introductory and recreational youth sports platform.
“We will be offering multi-sport enrichment programs of golf, tennis and floor hockey after school this semester in partnership with Los Alamitos Unified Schools and Los Alamitos Education Foundation and the City of Los Alamitos,” explains Oliver.
TGA’s (Teach, Grow, Achieve) unique program delivers introductory youth sports directly at schools and community centers through before- or after-school enrichment programs. Schools and families nationwide have embraced the TGA youth sports program not only because of its innovative station-based curriculum that combines athletics, academics, and life-skills, but also a safe and healthy environment for kids to participate and have an unparalleled experience playing sports. The other differentiator is how students also participate in interactive STEAM Labs that allow them to explore and relate concepts such as gravity, aerodynamics, and simple machines through the sports they are playing.
TGA’s youth sports model has become a leader in the youth sports industries. The governing body of tennis, United States Tennis Association (USTA), quickly recognized the traction TGA had in schools and joined forces to help TGA develop the fast-growing model for tennis. In addition, with its new Team Sports franchise, TGA has aligned with the American Development Model (ADM) created by the U.S. Olympic Committee, which includes skill progression and physical fitness creating a pathway toward an active and healthy lifestyle.
