About Amazing Athletes

Janee and Glen Henderson developed Amazing Athletes as an enrichment program that would integrate cognitive learning experiences with physical activities. They launched the program in 11 preschools across Orange County in California in 2003, and began franchising in 2006.

The Amazing Athletes program offers 35-minute weekly classes for children ages 2 to 6. Franchisees can also offer Amazing Tots and Amazing Warriors programs for younger and older children, respectively, as well as Amazing Athletes parties and camps.

Amazing Athletes provides a year-round, structured curriculum that introduces children to 10 different ball sports and helps them to master 6 key areas of motor-development. Our program is taught in a non-competitive, learning-based environment. We work with each child at their own progression level to ensure they are able to reach their highest potential.

Each weekly class focuses on two different sports and one area of motor-development. Also incorporated into each class are activities designed to improve the young child’s hand-eye coordination, muscle tone, flexibility, cardiovascular fitness and more.

Amazing Athletes is a Franchise 500-ranked mobile children’s franchise that helps activate youth to help instill a lifetime of healthy habits at an early age.
