Our story

How did we become such a well-respected provider of children’s sports coaching in communities?

It started in 2007, with a small team who organised games and activities for local children in a London park. Then it took off, as it became clear there was an urgent need for more local sports clubs and grassroots coaching for children in the UK.

As demand grew from children, parents and our community contacts, we began to develop a broad spectrum of children’s sports programmes. Including ones in partnership with local schools and councils, and existing sports clubs.

Now, as well as our national team delivering children’s coaching and sports activities in communities, we have an expanding network of franchisees doing the same in their chosen location.

The Little Foxes Club Vision

Of course, there’s always a part of us that hopes to discover the next top sports performers, who will represent their country at the highest level!

However, that’s NOT what it’s all about.

This successful community-based children’s sports business has much wider and more fundamental goals. This includes to:

Open up new sports to children aged 18 months to 15 years.
Offer outdoor fitness opportunities
Ensure children have fun and make new friends.
Build agility, coordination and balance
Create opportunities to learn teamwork, communication and a positive attitude
Provide inclusive community sports activities – all abilities welcomed
Increase confidence and a sense of self-worth among children
Stimulate the development of more local sports provisions

Why choose a sports franchise?

First, an important statistic.

Sports is a trending business sector, recording constant growth. Even the pandemic increased its value. By 2025, it is forecast that the global sports market will be worth a colossal $599.9 billion.

That makes sports-related franchise opportunities highly attractive for ambitious people who want to be their own boss. Especially when you factor in that this is a grassroots sports franchise aimed at children!

In the UK alone, parents spend billions of pounds each year on private tutors and coaches for their children. They also invest heavily in community-based sports activities such as holiday clubs and after school coaching.

Exciting, right!
