The youth sports and enrichment industry is now worth as much as $19 billion and one of the more prominent participants in that market is Bell Buckle Holdings Inc (OTCMKTS: BLLB). In June last year, Bell Buckle successfully acquired a majority interest in Jump Start Sports, which is a leading operator in the youth sports camps and programs space.

Towards the end of last year on December 12, 2022, the company announced in a tweet that it had a lot of big things planned for 2023 since it was looking to expand into becoming one of the biggest players in its sector in the United States. Jump Start sports had announced at the time key information about its programs and also the franchising opportunities that it offered.

Over the years, Jump Start Sports has been responsible for serving thousands upon thousands of children across the 5 US states of North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and New Jersey.

Earlier on in the month on February 9 Jump Start Sports announced that it had added two new independent members to its board of directors. One of the new appointments was Nicholas Corianom, who is responsible for running Cervitude Intelligent Relations, a company that also advises OTC entities like Bell Buckle.

The other appointment was that of Barry Fabyan, who is a Senior Managing Director at one of the world’s biggest commercial real estate firms JLL. The Chief Executive Officer of Bell Buckle, Robert Clegg noted that everyone at the company was delighted at the addition of the two new board members.
