Premier Children’s Soccer Franchise Coming to Franklin, Adams, Berkeley and Washington Counties; Local Couple Commits to Making a Positive Impact on Children Across Regions
FRANKLIN COUNTY, Pa. – Soccer Shots, the engaging children’s soccer program best known for its focus on character development, announced today it is joining the Franklin, Adams, Berkeley and Washington County communities. Dillsburg-based couple Jason and Erin Brockman will run the daily operations alongside Program Director Tom Birch, a seasoned soccer coach.
“Being able to blend our family’s passions for soccer and educating children with business ownership makes Soccer Shots the perfect opportunity for us,” said Jason Brockman, a father of three and co-owner of the Soccer Shots Franklin/Adams/Berkeley/Washington. “Our children have been heavily involved with Soccer Shots programs, and we’re excited to bring a curriculum that puts an emphasis on providing children with the tools to reach their full potential to our own community.”
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 wanted to bring Soccer Shots to South Central Pennsylvania and its surrounding counties, including the hundreds of times we’ve witnessed firsthand how the program has positively impacted children’s lives,” added Erin. “It is a testament to the proven business model and curriculum the Soccer Shots team has worked hard to develop and shows that participation in sports 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.
“Jason and Erin 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 Brockmans can provide a fun, growth experience for the boys and girls throughout the region.”
