BROSSARD, QUÉBEC--(Marketwire - Oct. 14, 2010) - Sportball™ the popular educationally-based sports program is expanding to Quebec.

"Sportball™ promotes fitness and activity, while helping children to improve their gross motor and social skills through sport," says Brian Jeffers, President of the EB3 Group, the Master Franchisee for Sportball™ in Quebec. "We focus on developing self confidence, social skills and physical skills, all in a non-competitive environment, using eight different sports as a platform—hockey, soccer, baseball, football, basketball, volleyball, tennis and golf. The goal of our program is to make a difference in the lives of young children, and this," says Jeffers, "is extremely rewarding".
