Company Background
Hotshots is an education and soccer program for children ages 2-8.

The company provides a franchise opportunity that includes curriculum training, marketing materials, administrative support from headquarters staff, and start-up assistance with location selection.

Franchise Opportunity
Soccer is the world's most popular sport and it is gaining popularity in the United States. However, soccer has traditionally been a difficult sport to learn for children under age 10. The Hotshots soccer education program was developed by former professional athletes to teach young children how to play soccer in an easy-to-learn format that will help them develop their skills as they get older. We have partnered with daycare centers, preschools, parks departments and other community programs across the nation who are looking for ways to offer fun physical activities for kids ages 2-8 during school breaks or summer months when sports leagues aren't in session. Our franchisee owners make money by offering our Hotshots program at schools where there isn't enough interest among parents or staff members to start a league of their own. With Hotshots your child can participate in exciting games and drills while learning basic skills including dribbling, passing, receiving passes from teammates, shooting on goal and
