Business Overview

Our Story

In 1979, Jeff Heimbigner recognized that children of varying athletic levels did not have the same opportunity to learn sport-specific skills as serious players or elite young athletes. Many of these children aspired to be better players, but unfortunately did not have the best setting in which to learn sport-specific skills, have fun, be safe, and take those lessons home and apply them to their everyday lives. Jeff had a vision that every child should experience the joy and benefits of sports. Jeff created a purpose for the company: “Teaching life skills through sports.”

With his vision and purpose stated, Skyhawks Sports was born.

Skyhawks Sports started as a regional soccer program focused in the Pacific Northwest. The popularity of the camps grew as the years went by, and some amazing athletes and wonderful individuals emerged. The Skyhawks Sports soccer-focused camps emphasized critical lessons in life, such as sportsmanship, teamwork, and winning and losing with grace.

Remaining true to its purpose and vision, Skyhawks added more sports to the offering and safe, fun, and skill-focused sports camps were realized. Over the last 30 years, vibrant memories have been created in the lives of students, coaches, and long-term associates of Skyhawks. Hundreds of excited children arrive when Skyhawks Sports comes to town to hold a sports camp. Full of interaction and excitement, the camps provide great fun for everyone, and our best camps are known to have a festival-like atmosphere. The most incredible part of a Skyhawks Sports camp is that the children forget that they are learning very valuable sport and life skills, because those lessons are so well integrated with friendly and fascinating play. Most important to us, and the purpose of Skyhawks Sports, is to teach life skills through sports.

The development of Skyhawks Sports has been a wonderful ride for everyone involved, and we expect to continue to make a difference--one child at a time. Today we offer 15 different sports (Soccer, Basketball, Flag Football, Baseball, Multi-Sport, Tennis, Mini-Hawk, Lacrosse, Golf, Volleyball, Cheerleading, and Track & Field) camps and programs, providing countless ways for your child to grow.

The formats of our 11 different sports camps and programs include traditional weeklong summer day camps and year-round after-school programs that range from 45 minutes to 6 hours in duration, per day. Our progression of camps and programs, led by our expert staff, are geared toward youth looking for a sport introduction or those who want to refine and master their sport-specific skills. Skyhawks Sports has proven to be the leader in youth sports since 1979. One of the things that makes Skyhawks trustworthy is that we go the extra mile to focus on safety, and we have a long-standing proven safety track record and processes to prove it. Safety highlights include:

Pioneering industry standards since 1979 for safety and curriculum

Holding the health and safety of our campers in the highest regard

Generating glowing consumer testimonials

This was the best camp! My child was totally entertained and engaged at all times!! The coaches were prepared and had endless energy! Loved it!!! - Sarah (Granite Bay, CA)

All of our fond memories have been possible because of parents like you with your wonderful children. Please join us, as we know we can make a difference for your family and community.
