Local Entrepreneurs Commit to Making a Positive Impact on the Children of the Community
VANCOUVER, B.C. – Soccer Shots, the engaging children’s soccer program best known for its focus on character development, announced the Metro Vancouver territory has new ownership with local residents Michael Mobilio and Jordan Campbell. As seasoned athletes familiar with the brand’s curriculum, the group is investing time and resources into ensuring the program continues to make a positive impact on the children throughout Metro Vancouver.
“Soccer Shots has already made a big impact on the Vancouver community and we’re excited that we get the opportunity to continue providing children with the tools to reach their full potential,” said Michael Mobilio, one of the new co-owners of Soccer Shots Metro Vancouver. “We all have a love for soccer and now we have the chance to share that with the community by educating children through the sport.”
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.
“As a Soccer Shots coach, I’ve been lucky enough to experience first hand how the program impacts children’s lives,” added Jordan Campbell, one of the new co-owners. “As part of the Metro Vancouver team, it was inspiring to see the success of the curriculum and the business model that the Soccer Shots team has worked hard to develop. I’m eager to continue coaching while also taking a larger role in helping to run the business with Michael.”
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.
“Michael and Jordan 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 Michael and Jordan can continue to provide a fun, growth experience for the boys and girls in Metro Vancouver.
