Company Overview

Jeremy Sorzano and Jason Webb played soccer together in college and professionally. They created Soccer Shots as a way to earn money during their off-season. With the success of their first two locations in Charlotte, North Carolina and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, friends and former teammates began asking how they could do the same, so they began franchising in 2005. Soccer Shots franchisees offer 30 to 40 minute weekly programs to teach children basic soccer skills and character-building lessons.
