Thank you for requesting more details about the Fast Feet Football Academy franchise. When we started the business back in 2013 we felt that Fast Feet FA really filled a gap in the provision of high quality football training. We were passionate about teaching children and have now grown our own business with hundreds of kids getting high quality football coaching on a weekly basis.
We need to make sure that the people who join us as franchisees share our passion for football so that they can provide the same service to the same high standards across the UK. If you love football and are passionate about teaching kids, then we want to hear from you.
Fast Feet FA delivers football coaching sessions to children between the ages of 3-16 years old. We do this in a group setting or a one to one basis. We also deliver sessions to educational establishments across the North East of England.
The business was established by Mark Rutter primarily because he felt that the quality of the training material used by existing football coaches was not up to standard. Mark decided to develop his own training programmes, which eventually became the Fast Feet Football Academy business. The company currently has over 350 children on its books, developing and operating some highly technical skills based football coaching business. The courses cater for all abilities with students progressing from entry-level training work to advanced levels, as they develop their skills and knowledge base.
Football Coaching offers driven and experienced individuals, the opportunity to forge an exceptionally rewarding career. Football is the biggest sport in the UK with millions playing and watching the beautiful game each week. Coaching with Fast Feet opens the door to working with professional academies, local educational establishments and players ranging from beginners to advanced elite individuals. The opportunities are endless and exceptionally rewarding, making this a fantastic career choice.
If you’re considering taking on a sports franchise with us, you want to know that your business will really stand out from the competition. Fast Feet FA has an extremely innovative service and offers children a whole host of new football skills that will improve their fitness and confidence.
For us, it’s all about providing a professional service that gives children the best possible start in the world of football. We’ve built up a strong set of programmes that are designed to give children a good grounding and understanding of the fundamentals of playing football. It will improve their skills as a player, and make them a much more effective teammate. All our staff are DBS checked, fully insured, and crucially have extensive footballing coaching experience. This is all designed to offer parents peace of mind, so they know that their children are in a safe environment where they can learn at their own pace and be treated the way they deserve.
Unlike many businesses, our business format has been designed to be as simple and straightforward as possible. It can, therefore, be managed by most people, given the right training. We operate in very much localised territories, which means that you can build up your customer base very quickly.
We are looking for individuals who enjoy working with children and have an interest in football. The more passionate you are about coaching, the more you can enthuse students to enjoy their classes. You need to be resourceful, energetic and great with both the children and parents. We offer a full range of training, so every franchisee is ready to run their business with the best chance of success.
Like any other service orientated business, there are things that can go wrong but the key to this is to deal with issues immediately, even more important when children are involved. In order to succeed, you must have high personal standards and a commitment to providing a quality service to your customers (both the children and their parents).
Our franchise offers all of the training and support that you need to help get your business off the ground. Our franchise support services include:
We offer a full training and support programme to assist with the development of these skills. You do, however, need to be prepared to work hard, follow our systems and be fully committed to getting the business off the ground in your local area.
Your key role is delivering the coaching session within your franchise territory, and that’s what we expect you to focus on. As the business grows you will be taking on additional coaches (these will be on a self-employed basis). You will also be responsible for:
Our business is flexible and offers a great work/life balance to people who are looking to own their own business. Running a business is lots of hard work, but that’s the challenge you’re looking for and that’s the challenge we can give!
All our Franchisees will be responsible for the local marketing of their business within their territory, with initial assistance from Head Office. Much of the success of a franchise depends upon local marketing and awareness building, and it is up to the individual as to how much or how little is invested in their area. But don’t worry, we’ll guide you through the ins and outs of local marketing. It’s easy, because we’ve done it many times before!
Like most franchisor’s, we charge a monthly management and marketing. These go to paying for the ongoing support we provide as well as helping promote the business on a regional and national level.
Every franchisee gets a protected territory, which they will have responsibility to develop. Each franchisee will have approximately 120,000 people per area. We will discuss the issue of territory with you, to ensure that you have the best possible area to start your business. We want you to have an area that you can service, develop and grow over the coming years.
Our franchise package fee is currently £9,995. The start-up costs for the business are listed at the end of the brochure. This details everything that you will need to purchase and establish a Fast Feet FA franchise.
We have also developed detailed financial models for what your business could make, based upon our experience of running a Fast Feet FA business. We will happily share these with you once we have had an initial meeting to discuss your suitability.
