keep kids active, moving, involved and engaged
Our programming is more than just games played for pleasure, rather it’s our way to nurture and motivate young people to improve their individual athletic skills while also developing their character. The Hi-Five Sports Zone provides children with a positive, productive, safe, and fun environment that leads to healthy lifestyles and great character.
This is the culmination of 30+ years of experience in youth sports. This isn’t your typical sports facility. It’s designed specifically for younger children with everything from the field size – to the height of our hoops – to the incorporation of our lovable mascot, Murphy. Our unique approach to sports programming and birthday parties will give families a truly unique experience.

The Hi-Five Sports Zone also includes our Murphy Mart reward system! This helps children further develop their personal growth principles. Life lessons will be a key part of every program at the Hi-Five Sports Zone. Children will be rewarded with “Murphy Coins”, as well as digitally for qualities such as sportsmanship and teamwork and can redeem them for a wide variety of prizes. The Murphy Mart is a great addition to birthday parties!

Hi, my name is Quintin Johnson, Coach Q. I have been working with youth for 25 years as a profession. I currently am a student advocate at Bloomington Jefferson High. I am also in my 8th year as the Head Girls Basketball coach at Bloomington Kennedy High. I have over 100 career wins and have coached in 2 state championship games.
I have been to 4 section finals and I have on 2 conf championships. I have been named section coach of the year twice. I have sent many players on to play college ball. I played my college ball at the Univ of Wisconsin-Eau Claire where my teams won over 80 games in 3 years. I also played for a national championship. I take pride in teaching our youth basketball and life skills.
I specialize in moving without the ball and shooting. But more importantly, the when, where, what and why. (basketball IQ) I coach boys during my summer months as I want to coach both boys and girls. I look forward to guiding your son or daughter on their journey in basketball and would love to take them to new heights. Whether it is to become a Varsity player or better yet a college player.
