Giving kids a sporting chance. In-school curriculum, after school academy programmes, school sports days. Education outside of the classroom. Before and after-school care holiday programmes. We are looking for people who have a passion for kids and sport.
The opportunity
Kelly Sports are looking for potential franchisees who have a love of kids and of sport. We operate in hundreds of schools in Australasia, and are looking for suitable potential franchisees to cater for our rapid growth. This is a fantastic opportunity to own your own business and make a real difference to children’s lives, helping develop their skills and confidence through sport.

Kelly Sports has been running successfully in Australia for nearly 20 years. It’s been operating in New Zealand since 2007 and in that time we have grown to 36 franchises running successful programmes in many schools throughout the country.

There aren't many jobs more rewarding than those that involve working with young children. There aren't many businesses that give you the opportunity to do so. Good quality sports education makes a real difference in youngsters' lives and being able to play a key role in helping develop their skills and confidence can be very rewarding.

Teachers and parents are becoming increasingly aware of the need to have their children participating in sports, learning to interact with each other and having fun. It encourages a healthy lifestyle and arms them with the physical, mental and social skills to prepare them for life.

Is Kelly Sports for you?
If you answer "yes" to the questions below then you have all the qualifications you need to start a new and satisfying career – owning and operating a Kelly Sports franchise:

1. Do you enjoy sport?
2. Are you confident working with 5 to 10 year old's teaching basic sporting skills?
3. Do you have the ability to train and motivate staff?
4. Do you want a lifestyle that allows you to work from home with flexible hours?
5. Are you enthusiastic, motivated and well organised?
6. Do you enjoy working outdoors?
7. Do you want to be part of a successful team bringing a new and exciting initiative to New Zealand?

What do Kelly Sports do?
Kelly Sports can provide the following services:
In school PE and sports programmes
After school and lunchtime sports clinics
Holiday programmes and coaching clinics
Children’s events and corporate activities

Skills & training
No skills or training required, but if you have a teaching qualification or a sports and recreational degree this would be helpful.
