Amazing Athletes Franchise Information
Amazing Athletes is a franchise for a physical fitness sports program for preschools. It was founded in 2002 and started franchising in 2006. It was founded by the chiropractor Dr. Janee Henderson and her husband who is a sports coach, Glen Henderson.
It was in 2001 that they started searching for a preschool for their children and thought of applying developmental sports programs in preschools. The couple formulated a 50 week curriculum that teaches the children about the fundamentals of physical fitness, fine and gross motor skills, muscle development, and hand eye coordination. This includes different types of ball sports. It’s designed for children aged 2 ½ to 6 years old. Their programs have been applied to more than 515 preschools all over the country and currently have 42 franchises all over the United States.
