WELCOME TO HARDWOOD HEAVEN!
The Fieldhouse family of basketball facilities are the premiere youth basketball training and competition venues in the United States!
The youth sports market is an exciting and booming growth industry and basketball leads the way with nearly 20 million youth participants a year. There is a game plan for success in this market. As 30 year veterans of the sport, we know better than anyone. The Fieldhouse - USA has over a decade of ownership and operational experience with the country's premiere youth competition and training venues, The Fieldhouse - Indianapolis and Spiece Fieldhouse. Now we are expanding our vision for world-class basketball by offering franchise opportunities based on our successful formula.
THE WINNING COMBINATION.
VISION. DESIGN. SYNERGY. EXPERTISE.
VISION - The industry's first national brand. How do you stand out in an increasingly crowded marketplace? Small, local, independently-operated gyms with no name recognition have become commonplace. The Fieldhouse offers entrepreneurs the advantage of an established, reputable brand that coaches, players, and parents associate with great basketball, whether they are at home or on the road.
DESIGN - A state-of-the-art facility that becomes a "must-experience" destination for teams from hundreds of miles around. You can now bring the venue that USSSA and AAU officials have called "the finest basketball facility in the United States!" to your community. The next-generation Fieldhouse has been designed by one of the leading "attraction destination" architecture teams in the country with a resume including design work for MLB's Philadelphia Phillies and the NBA's San Antonio Spurs. Why spend tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of dollars unnecessarily trying to redesign the wheel when our design team has already put together the winning formula for building outstanding cost-efficient facilities. In addition, our franchisees our able to capitalize on The Fieldhouse preferred pricing arrangements with suppliers for everything from gym floors to scoreboards to bleachers!
SYNERGY - Successful affiliations. Business is about relationships. As a Fieldhouse franchisee, you are provided built-in relationships through not only The Fieldhouse franchise network but also through USSSA Basketball. Our facilities have the ability to host not only local and regional events, but nationally-recognized events such as USSSA National Qualifiers and National Invitational Tournaments as well. And with a built-in network of more than 10,000 affiliated teams across the country in addition to the franchise-based network of Fieldhouse Elite club teams, we can deliver those teams to your doorstep -- instantaneously giving our franchisees a competitive advantage in their marketplace no independent operator can duplicate.
EXPERTISE - A proven model for a thriving business. The Fieldhouse is proof that youth sports can be as profitable as they are popular. However, as many independent pay-for-play venues quickly discover, sports facility ownership is not necessarily a "Field of Dreams." WIthout the right business plan, the right mix of services, and the right affiliations to keep facilities booked, these independent venues are doomed to failure. Our business model has been developed through more than 30 years' experience developing youth basketball leagues, tournaments, training programs and facility management. Graduates of our programs include 2007 NBA first-round draft picks Greg Oden, Mike Conley, Jr. and Daequan Cook of Ohio State, second-round pick Josh McRoberts of Duke, and 2008 NCAA Freshman of the Year candidate Eric Gordon of Indiana University. Our business model has produced some of the largest leagues and tournaments in the country and developed flexible year-round programming allowing individual franchisees to capitalize on unique opportunities within their local markets.
We are looking for outstanding partners to own and operate facilities across the United States. If you are considering entering the dynamic and rewarding field of youth sports, please contact me directly to learn more about the advantages a Fieldhouse franchise can offer.
