Industry Performance

A Great Opportunity

Soccer is one of the largest sports in the United States for children. Even in the territories where we have been operating for 20 years, we still can’t cover every inch of territory. There are pre-schools, elementary schools, parks & rec, community centers, open grass and field spaces, turf sports facilities, private schools, at-home programs, private groups, partnerships with gyms using their studio rooms during the day, and corporate day-care facilities. We help you identify the biggest opportunities within your market to go after and build. We are also the only national program that runs from parent & me up to recreational and development classes, giving you a very long player pathway for each child in your programs.

There are four key reasons why prospective owners end up choosing Soccer Stars:
