Franchise Program Details
When a player, coach, or family walk through our doors, they walk into our world, where providing the best experience in youth sports is our goal. As a U.S. Basketball Fieldhouse franchisee you receive the following benefits to insure you have all the tools to make that happen:
Site Selection - Our knowledge and experience will guide you when choosing a market location best suited for the business model, including budgetary and support amenity considerations.

Preferred pricing arrangements with equipment and flooring suppliers result in additional construction cost savings.
In-Depth Training - To get your Fieldhouse facility up and running we will provide classroom training, as well as experience in an actual Fieldhouse facility to become educated on league and tournament development protocol, identification of alternative revenue streams, staffing, event scheduling, website maintenance, equipment operation, and other business operations.
On-Site Consultation - Our operations experts will be on hand for two days during your facility' s grand opening to answer any questions and provide additional training if necessary.
Marketing Assistance - We provide every new franchise with access to our database of nearly 10,000 teams and coaches, advertising templates, and suggestions on how to get involved in your community to increase your exposure. We're there every step of the way to support you as you open your facility. We take an active interest in your success.
Online Support - The Fieldhouse parent website will create a true online basketball community. In addition to providing links and promoting Fieldhouse franchises across the country, the site will allow coaches, players, and families the ability to search for tournaments within the network and will also track each team's performance. A built-in ranking power ranking system will even allow visitors to compare their team to other teams across The Fieldhouse network.
Web Presence - Each franchise location is provided a fully functional website template and domain name. The web-based application provides franchisees the ability to centralize all scheduling functions (games, events, training schedules, court rentals, official's assignments, etc.), manage team, coach, and player contacts, update standings and capture performance results, promote future programs, and accept online registrations.
Flexible Programming - Although the core mission of all Fieldhouse facilities is youth basketball related, the facility design and business model provide a variety of alternative revenue producing programs. Franchises are educated on how to seamlessly integrate a variety of programs such as adult, church and corporate basketball leagues, volleyball, futsal, lacrosse, etc., into their business.
Cost-Saving Insurance Programs - Franchisees enjoy the benefit of saving tens of thousands of dollars annually in liability insurance costs. Fieldhouse facilities, through our unique relationship with USSSA Basketball, are provided liability insurance coverage at rates drastically below rates independent pay-for-play facilities.
Club Team Network - In addition to the 10,000 member teams in USSSA Basketball, franchises will also have access to other teams within The Fieldhouse facility network. Through a geographically-based, coordinated tournament schedule, each franchises' Club Teams can cross-promote and attend sister facilities' tournaments. This team-sharing network can provide a built-in base of teams, creating the critical mass necessary to attract a broad range of independent teams - making your tourneys stand out from other run-of-the-mill events. This competitive advantage cannot be duplicated by independent pay-for-play facilities.
