HOW IT WORKS.

Step One – Initial Inquiry
A representative will respond to your Request For Information form and answer your initial questions about the process and describe our business model.

Step Two – Additional Research
During this stage, you will be researching market potential and evaluating your interest and commitment level. You may also be looking into financing if necessary. We will encourage you to speak with some of our experienced operators to gain their valuable insight. Many jurisdictions require the franchisor to provide Franchise Disclosure to interested Franchisees;

these documents provide all important and relevant information related to the Franchise. You will be provided with Disclosure where required and on timelines that are consistent with Franchise regulations. If through this period of comprehensive due diligence, we agree to proceed to the next stage, we will invite you to visit our Sportball headquarters. Here, you will meet our Team: Management, Staff and Coaches. You will see a variety of classes in action and gain a thorough understanding of who we are and what we do.

At this point, you will complete your due diligence, finalize your business plan and confirm your ability to finance the business.

Step Four – Legal Agreements
When you have decided that you are ready to commit to a Sportball Franchise, we will prepare a draft of the Franchise Agreement and submit it to you for review. Provided that all of the

terms have been finalized to the satisfaction of both parties, you will sign the Franchise Agreement.

Step Five – Training and Launch
Before starting your business, you will return to our Headquarters for training in the Sportball Method including program delivery and curriculum. We will educate you on our lesson plans and classroom management techniques.

Regional and National Master Franchises are available in Asia, Europe, Central and South America. We see potential in any markets that have the demographics and demand to support premium programs for kids.

WHAT KIND OF BACKGROUND OR BUSINESS EXPERIENCE IS REQUIRED?

Acquiring the rights to our franchise system will complement the skills that you and your team already have. It is important that you have a track record of success in your current business(es) and that you have a deep understanding of the marketplace and consumer behaviours. Beyond this, having a passion for working with children through a system of sports instruction is of paramount importance. If you’re already in a business that serves the children’s market and you can align or leverage Sportball to further penetrate your market area, this is a distinct advantage.

HOW MUCH WILL IT COST TO BECOME A SPORTBALL MASTER FRANCHISEE?

Unlike our defined franchise fees for a North American territory, the value of international franchise territories is based on the size of the territory and its development potential. Typically, international markets are going to include a region of a country or the entire country. Unlike a ‘domestic’ North American territory, your Master Franchise allows you to develop the market both through your own managed operations as well as through the sale of franchises. The ability to sub-franchise will allow you to scale up your territory faster and realize additional revenue streams. Discuss this potential with your Sportball representative.

WHAT CAN I POTENTIALLY EARN?

Many factors play a role in the success of a business, including local market conditions and the skills of the ownership and management group. We will provide information on potential sources of revenue in your market, the types of location opportunities that you may be able to take advantage of, program pricing considerations and the broad elements regarding your cost structure to help your evaluation. This information along with your market analysis should help you to make an informed assessment.
