Premier Children’s Soccer Franchise Expands Program to North Denver and Aurora; Local Entrepreneur Commits to Making a Positive Impact on the Children of the Community
DENVER – Soccer Shots, the engaging children’s soccer program best known for its focus on character development, announced today it is expanding its Denver program’s presence into North Denver as well as Aurora.
“Soccer Shots is designed to provide young children with the tools they need to reach their full potential, and we are grateful to have had success in Denver. The partnerships and support of local schools and community members have made it possible to expand our program’s reach,” said Greg Giordano, co-owner of Soccer Shots Denver alongside his wife Sara. “Our team is thrilled to introduce the Soccer Shots experience to more families in the North Denver and Aurora communities.”
Aimed at positively impacting children’s lives, Soccer Shots strives to be the best part of a child’s week through best-in-class coaching, communication and curriculum. Serving children ages two through eight, the program features professional coaches in the community, an exceptional customer experience including ongoing communication and an expert-approved curriculum that aligns with early childhood education standards. The weekly programs, customized for three different age groups, teach children soccer fundamentals and character-building skills. Soccer Shots hosts private sessions through local schools and childcare centers as well as public programs, which are typically hosted through park districts.
“There are several reasons why we’ve expanded Soccer Shots’ presence to serve a greater number of children in the Greater Denver Area, including the hundreds of stories that have been shared with us about how the program has impacted children’s lives,” added Giordano. “It is a testament to the proven business model and curriculum the Soccer Shots team has worked hard to develop. We’re proud to expand our business in order to show how participation in soccer can provide several benefits beyond simply learning the sport itself.”
Looking to fill an opening in the marketplace for quality soccer programs, professional soccer teammates Jeremy Sorzano and Jason Webb launched Soccer Shots in Charlotte, North Carolina in 1999 under the name Soccer Pals. Jeremy and Jason strived to close the gap in the existing programs that did not have the resources or skills to effectively teach children soccer fundamentals. In 2009, Justin Bredeman, another former college soccer teammate of Jeremy and Jason, became the third Soccer Shots partner. Soccer Shots now serves over 440,000 children annually and continues to grow its programming throughout North America.
“Greg and Sara, alongside executive director Patrick Melo, share our passion for creating positive experiences through sports with the goal to make a lasting impact on children’s lives,” said Justin Bredeman, CEO of Soccer Shots. “They are committed to helping the next generation of children gain the skills they need to be successful in soccer and in forming positive relationships on any field or arena. We’re excited the Giordanos are expanding their reach to provide a fun growth experience for even more boys and girls in Greater Denver.”
