Scoring goals with a Sport Star Academy franchise
Are you a sports lover who’d rather be inspiring the sport stars of tomorrow than stuck behind a stuffy desk? A Sport Star Academy franchise could be just the change you need.
Sport Star Academy is considered the most professional, credible and leading provider of youth sport programs in Australia. It is involved in grass roots sport programs aimed at developing the skills of children from 1-18 years old and developing player pathways for future sport players.
It offers franchise options in football (soccer), rugby, tennis, netball, footy (AFL), basketball, cricket and golf through its different academies.
Its Football Star Academy, for example, was established in 2002 and specialises in football skill development and mentoring young players to be the best they can be. It has grown at an incredible rate and has already had over 250,000 children participating in its programs across Australia. And last year, Football Star Academy was awarded "Franchise Business of the Year" in the Optus My Business Awards.
Taking on a Sport Star Academy franchise is not for those who want a weekend hobby or seasonable job. It’s a seven days a week business with demand for its services all year round. However, the great thing about purchasing a franchise is your ability to be flexible in the hours you work. You are not expected to coach full time. SSA can support you in employing an Operations Manager should this be an investment driven purchase.
You’ll reap the many rewards of working with kids and will be part of the community as you liaise with parents, schools, PE teachers and principals. You won’t need to coach the children yourself.
With an investment starting from $35,000, the franchise opens multiple revenue streams through weekly clinics, holiday camps, elite squad training, irl’s only programs and birthday parties
As a franchisee, you will be taking advantage of Sport Star Academy’s years of experience in the industry and have access to its proven formula, including its tired and tested systems and procedures and best marketing practices.
Full training will be provided. The franchisor breaks this down into “off the field” and “on the field” training because it believes scoring goals off the field are just as important as scoring goals on the field.
Sport Star Academy will help you with the local launch of your business and provide you with national marketing support and access to its support team. You’ll also receive further backing via weekly calls, monthly meetings, workshops, the annual conference, webinars and analysis reports.
In addition, you’ll will able to benefit from its centralised system, personalised business email, 1300 call centre, website and automated payment gateway. Plus, you will receive a franchise equipment pack, coaches’ uniforms, coaching equipment and signage.
It's important for you to be familiar with the location you are investing in and the franchisor will assist you in selecting one that’s appropriate one for you. You can also buy a company-owned location, which may cost more because its already an established business.
A Sport Star Academy franchise is best suited to people who are passionate about sports, like working with kids, are hardworking and strong communicators, and enjoy making a difference within their local community.
