The $100B fitness segment is booming with the surging numbers of virtual classes – and Soccer Shots is ahead of the curve. Given the quickly-evolving landscape and impact of COVID-19, it’s more crucial than ever for franchise systems to be able to adapt and support their franchisees. Even in trying times, at Soccer Shots, we understand the importance of providing our franchisees with the resources and tools they need to stay up and running in order to keep children active and engaged.
To do so, as North America began to shut down, our franchise support team quickly realized we would have to pivot – and right away. Within days, our team worked to create and execute a brand-new program offering – Soccer Shots On The Go – a digital delivery of our expert-approved curriculum to help families get moving and have some fun…at home! Through a combination of videos, which are packed with soccer skills, character development and creative ways to stay active, and engaging activities and resources for the whole family that are delivered each week, our franchise owners are able to continue to lead their own businesses, generate revenue and pursue their passion for making a positive impact on children through soccer. How we are delivering it might look a little different, but our why has not changed – to provide a beloved growth experience for every child; a remarkable experience for every family.

Although no business is truly “recession-proof,” the children’s fitness category has proven to be necessary no matter the economic climate, making Soccer Shots a recession-resistant franchise opportunity for savvy business owners. Looking ahead, our franchisees will not have to be concerned with the typical real estate costs associated with a brick-and-mortar franchise, as our programs normally take place in a variety of environments, including schools and outdoor parks.
We know these times are challenging, but we value the opportunity to work together to continue to provide children and families with a remarkable experience.
