Is there training? Do you provide support?
Soccer 5 provides an extensive training and support program to help you every step of the way. From the time you sign your franchise agreement, our support staff begins working with you to select your site and get your location opened. Our online collaboration system takes you step by step through every phase of opening your Soccer 5 center.
It all starts with at least one week of training at our Miami HQ for you, your general manager and one other person. This initial training occurs approximately 45 days prior to your opening and teaches your key management staff what they need to run your Soccer 5 center.
When you open your Soccer 5 we also provide a trainer to assist you at your location for the first week. Training continues after your opening with your personal Franchise Business Advisor who works with you step by step on an ongoing basis.

You don't need any prior experience in owning your own business or operating a franchise business.

In addition, we will be with you in your center when you open the doors.
