Skyhawks Sports Academy, a national franchise specializing in skill-based sports instructions for children ages 4-14, opened a new location in New Orleans, LA in September. The franchise is owned by William Berry and his two sisters, Caroline Berry and Catherine Fabre and is the first in the state of Louisiana.


Skyhawks Sports provides children a fun, safe and non-competitive environment. The organization currently offers programs in more than 11 different sports, including soccer, basketball, flag football, baseball, multi-sport, tennis, Mini-Hawk, lacrosse, golf, volleyball, cheerleading and track and field. The program formats include traditional weeklong summer day camps, year-round after school programs, sports leagues, and clinics.


William Berry oversees the daily operations of the New Orleans franchise while also serving as one of the program instructors. Catherine is a CPA who handles all the franchise’s finances. Caroline has experience as a startup specialist with new businesses and is taking take of marketing and social media to promote Skyhawks Sports to families in the area.


Although the group’s efforts were delayed when Hurricane Ida hit New Orleans in late August, some of the first programs quickly sold out as parents wanted to give their children a chance to get out of the house and engage with others.
