Your team of coaches will focus on maintaining a fun, instructional, and non-competitive environment using creative games and techniques that were designed specifically by our founder, Jerome Smalls, a former educator and early childhood development instructor.

Our model offers programs to learning centers, neighborhood sites, and birthday parties, and is easily adapted to a variety of settings.  Lesson plans and curriculum have been professionally developed and are specifically designed to introduce the fundamentals of soccer in a fun way. We are an ideal franchise opportunity for individuals who want to make a difference in their lives, their community, and most importantly in the lives of children. If you have a passion for leadership, giving back to your community, and team sports, a SoccerGemz franchise could be the perfect fit for you.

SoccerGemz offers a proven, turn-key business model makes starting your own business easier and more efficient.  As a franchisee, you will have the benefit of the unique and creative SoccerGemz curriculum with full lesson plans to ensure you and your team can provide the best possible experience for each family. We also offer comprehensive training support, business coaching assistance, and marketing materials so you can hit the ground running and start building a loyal customer base within your community.

As a franchise owner, you don’t need to know how to play soccer (our founder didn’t play when he started the brand either!) Ideally you are goal driven, team-oriented with communication and leadership skills, and the ability to manage a team of coaches. Our leadership team will train you to focus your attention on seeking opportunities to promote and partner with schools in your community to grow your business.

Becoming part of our family, franchise owners are supported by the brand’s multiple streams of revenue: such as community & schools enrichment programs, birthday parties and private groups.  By owning a SoccerGemz franchise you can feel confident in offering an essential service to the community that will keep your locations busy all year  and during economic ups and downs.

We set our brand apart from other youth sports programs by focusing on business development, building personal relationships in the community and a fun and creative curriculum.  We believe in developing children’s physical and social skills through soccer. Our programs are not designed to create professional soccer players, but instead to help children build character, confidence, coordination and teamwork skills that will serve them throughout their lives. And if they make it to the PRO’s one day, great! Hopefully they remember us😊

Who We Are

SoccerGemz was founded out of a passion for working with children.  As the concept became a successful business, our founder was inspired to help others make the transition from employee to business owner. Not only did this opportunity provide the ideal work-life balance, it also provided the gratification of networking and building relationships in the community.  Helping others to succeed has always been central to our mission, first with our players and now with ongoing support for new franchisees. We offer multiple revenue streams, program offerings and an effective, profitable, and proven business model.
