Children's programming is an important part of many facility operations, and like US Indoor's other youth programming providers, Hi-Five Sports Franchising is passionate about helping kids be active through sports while teaching the lessons that go with sports and just having fun.

As Marvin Tuchman coached his son Rvan's youth sports teams, he thought programs weren't up to the standards they should be. At that time, the only organized programs were either put on by parks and recreation departments or by organizations like the YMCA. So, he set out to start his own, and Hi-Five was born in 1990.

Posted on August 8, 2016 by Sarah B

It’s been two years since Hi-Five Sports Zone opened its doors at 5411 Geary near 18th Avenue, taking over a large space that was formerly a Walgreen’s. The space had been vacant for several years, during which a nasty battle took place over a Petco store taking occupancy. So residents were relieved when Hi-Five finally opened its doors in June 2014.

Hi-Five was a well-established business by 2014, offering sports camps, leagues and events for kids aged 2-10 years around the Bay Area and in Arizona. But Geary was their first brick and mortar location, and they chose the Richmond District because of it’s high population of families and its suitability for “a unique family sports

The Bay Area isn’t known as a particularly sporty place. Sure, we have some championship teams to root for, but when it comes to our kids’ extra curricular activities we tend to be more circus school, less Friday Night Lights. But for those of us who grew up learning the values of teamwork, sportsmanship and how to walk it off by playing team sports, Hi-Five Sports Zone, which just opened on Geary and 18th Avenue, offers our little ones plenty of ways to get in the game.

The Game Plan. Hi-Five Sports Zone offers classes, leagues, parties and camps for players as young as 2.
