A Chat with Footy Factory
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
What makes Footy Factory different is our academy-like structure. Our programs are organized according to skill level with a bottom-top approach, meaning players can earn promotion into the more advanced classes based on performance. This gives them the motivation to want to get better every day.
What’s one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
We aren’t a daycare, so our sessions won’t be all fun and games. Footy Factory is a proper training program designed to develop individual technique. That said, we want you to have fun! Our goal is to make you fall in love with the process of working hard every day to make your dreams come true.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
There was always something missing in my playing career that held me back a bit. I never had anyone behind me pushing me to get better, dissecting my strengths and weaknesses, and promoting me to the soccer community. I want to provide that mentoring relationship to as many young talents as I can.
What do you love most about your job?
Soccer is the only thing in this world that I am legitimately passionate about. I’ve always known I wanted to go into business for myself, but I never knew what kind of business. It took me a while to find that answer, but it turned out to be an obvious one. So I’m doing what I know best: soccer.
