About the Pro Sports Experience Mission
When a child is fully educated in a game, the child is then
equipped to become a long-term, highly-active fan of that game.
SERVICE: To reach kids ages 5-14 years old, professional sports teams and athletes choose Pro Sports Experience, LLC to build, launch and manage Youth Sports Camps and Athletic Training Programs on their behalf.
CLIENTS: Pro Sports Experience is the official management company of Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers, New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles Youth Football Camps and related fan development programs.
We are also an official, licensed partner of USA Football for their Heads Up Football curriculum.
HISTORY: Since 2002, Pro Sports Experience has successfully operated over 700 community-based, Youth Sports Camps for National Football League, National Hockey League and professional athlete partners.
REWARD: Partners are rewarded with multiple, professionally executed Youth Sports Camps that deliver Fan Development, Community Relations and Sponsorship Revenue benefits.
FULL-SERVICE SOLUTION: Partners value our full-service management, strategic planning and program execution leadership. After jointly developing the game plan with partners, we professionally mobilize their brand and resources. Then, from start to finish, we provide full-service management for all sales, marketing, financial, risk, customer service and program execution challenges.
COMMUNITY-BASED CAMPS: For their children, we introduce the game to newcomers, build confidence in recreational players and take dedicated players to the next level. We make high-profile camps accessible and convenient by establishing programs in multiple, local communities within the team’s designated marketplace.
THE PSE TEAM: For 12 years, Pro Sports Experience, LLC is led by Owner/President Tom Finks. Finks, a graduate of Dartmouth College, enjoyed nine years with the NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks in a marketing and community relations capacity before starting the Pro Sports Experience management company.
In January of 2009, Tom Finks was elected to the Illinois Hockey Hall of Fame in the player category.
In 2010, Finks was named “Honorary Chairman” of the American Lung Association’s Christmas Seals Campaign. The nomination honored Finks’s father Jim who died of lung cancer.
Tom Finks is the son of former Chicago Bears, Minnesota Viking and New Orleans Saints Executive Jim Finks. Jim Finks was elected to the NFL Football Hall-of-Fame in 1995.
The core PSE management staff includes Operations Director Mike Gross; Chief Financial Officer, Attorney Lisa Finks; Enrollment Director Nick Waters; various part-time staffers and a year-long internship program in conjunction with DePaul University, Loyola University and Lake Forest College.
In the field, we hire highly qualified professional educators and coaches, many of whom have conducted these camps with us for several years. These professional coaches and staff members are educated on program resources, goals, protocols and communication requirements to serve the customer…and ultimately deliver a truly professional sports experience for kids.
