Company Overview

When Kansas City preschools began taking field trips to Andy Barney's indoor soccer facility, he developed the HappyFeet program (originally called Mini-Kickers) to teach 3, 4 and 5-year-olds soccer skills with the help of stories, nursery rhymes and songs. HappyFeet franchisees offer these soccer lessons year-round on-site at preschools. For older children, Barney also created Legends Soccer Club to teach more advanced soccer skills.
