Progressive sports franchise information

Progressive Sports is a well-established and proven sports franchise that provides physical education to children between the ages of three and 13-year-olds. Its the mission of Progressive Sports to make sports and exercise accessible to all while inspiring children and increasing their confidence.

As a Progressive Sports franchisee, you can run an exciting business which provides multiple income streams. You'll get to offer sports solutions to parents, teachers as well as community group leaders. If you're ambitious and want to expand your business further, you can also provide holiday courses, dance lessons, gymnastics, birthday parties plus much more.

Its proven that participating in sports helps children to improve their social skills, progress their academic success and contributes towards lifelong health. This is why parents and schools alike are understanding the importance of the services that Progressive Sports offer.

Youll also benefit hugely from becoming a Progressive Sports franchisee too. As well as having access to multiple revenue streams from both the public and private sector, youll also have high levels of repeat business, high-profit margins, year-round revenue, flexibility and the freedom to be your own boss. As far as low-cost franchises go, Progressive Sports offer pretty impressive returns on your investment. And to top it off, helping children to get fit, happy and healthy is incredibly rewarding.

Whats required?

This is a great franchise business opportunity for budding entrepreneurs who have never managed their own business. You dont need any previous business ownership experience as youll receive all the training you need. Youll learn how to deliver excellent programmes for your students, as well as finding out how to promote your business and maximise your profits.

You dont necessarily need any prior coaching experience either. If you choose to operate your business on a Management Franchise basis, then you just need an Enhanced CRB Disclosure. If youd rather deliver the training programmes yourself, youll require a minimum of one National Governing Bodies (NGB) Level 2 as well.

To successfully run this sports franchise, youll need specific attributes, however. Progressive Sports want their franchisees to be passionate about sport, have enthusiasm and dedication to run their own business and enjoy working with children. You'll also need to be well organised with excellent communication and management skills.

Franchise packages available

Progressive Sports has a franchise business opportunity to suit all potential investors. There are three packages to choose from:

Petite Franchise

This entry level package is one of the low-cost franchises that is perfect for first-time franchisees. Starting at just £7,950, this package gives you the chance to become a sports coach with the freedom and flexibility of running your own business.

Standard Franchise

If youd rather play more of a managerial role in your business, then this popular franchise package could be the one for you. This opportunity is great for individuals who want the challenge of a more extensive territory and managing a team of staff.

Premium Franchise

If you have ambitions to grow your business quickly and generate a significant profit, then the Premium Franchise is the package for you. If you have experience in managing teams or have previously worked in marketing and sales, then you have all the necessary skills to develop your business effectively.

Whatever level of franchise business opportunity to choose to invest in, youll also receive the following to get your business off the ground:

  • Launch kit (including advertising templates, brochures, and leaflets)
  • On-site support during and after your Launch
  • Sports equipment
  • Marketing materials

Youll get to hear from guest speakers and meet up with your fellow franchisees to share success stories and ideas.

Case studies

Kevin Watts from South East London was keen to start his own business but felt he needed support to make his dream come true. When he discovered Progressive Sports, it was the training and support that they offered which was a crucial factor in making his decision to become a franchisee.

The initial training and the advice and guidance that Kevin received with the marketing and launch strategy helped him to hit the ground running. And Kevin hasnt looked back since. Within the first three months of trading, Kevin had built a significant client base.

Kevins hard work didnt go unnoticed. Within his first year as a Progressive Sports franchisee, Kevin won the award for Best New Business in 2012 at the South London Awards sponsored by HSBC. Kevin beat off competition from 600 other new businesses and is all done to his hard work, dedication and determination to make his franchise a success. Kevin praises the Progressive Sports team too. Without their support, he wouldnt have been able to grow and develop his business as quickly as he did.

If Kevin can do it, perhaps you can too.
