About This Franchise

Empowering Children Through the Power of Sports

At Lil Athletes, we give young children the opportunity to experience a variety of sports at a young age. Our classes teach children sports specific skills, fitness concepts, and provide structure in a fun group setting. Young children get to interact with their peers, learning how to follow directions and routines while developing their social and cognitive functions. We offer weekly single and multi-sport class options at our flagship store in East Northport, NY as well as off-site programs at various schools, libraries, and other recreational facilities. Our hybrid business model allows our program to empower thousands of children in our local market. By utilizing a multi-sport model, Lil Athletes gives children the opportunity to experience a variety of sports, including Soccer, Baseball, Lacrosse, Basketball, Football, and Hockey.
