Super Soccer Stars, the nation’s premier youth soccer organization, announced it has completed the acquisition of KICKZ UK based in Morristown, N.J. Since 2007, Kickz UK has successfully trained hundreds of travel and recreational soccer teams in Northern New Jersey.
“We are thrilled to welcome Kickz UK and Claire Smith, with her 24 years of international coaching experience, to the Super Soccer Stars family,” said Dean Simpson, Chief Programs Officer of Super Soccer Stars. “Kickz UK embodies our driving principles of fun, educational soccer instruction in a safe environment, allowing children to flourish at their own pace. Claire and her team are natural partners for us, as we continue to expand our reach of best in-class soccer content across the country. We look forward to a fantastic future together.”
Claire Smith, Kickz UK founder added, “On behalf of our entire coaching staff, Kickz UK is proud to be joining forces with Super Soccer Stars. The Kickz philosophy is to bring training methods and techniques from around the world and introduce them to youth soccer programs throughout New Jersey. Our coaches draw from experience in both the US and abroad, to offer skill development and unique team strategies. Super Soccer Stars shares in that mission and coaching experience. With the youth soccer industry in the US continuing to grow and evolve, it was essential to partner with a company that has the background knowledge and strength to offer the highest quality product possible.”
“With the addition of Kickz UK, we have added approximately 50 youth soccer programs across New Jersey, including Chatham, Metuchen, Lenape Valley and Hunterdon. We will continue to seek out local market brands to acquire in the soccer industry that share our vision to bring the best youth sports content to families across the country,” said Adam Geisler, CEO of Super Soccer Stars.
Since acquiring Super Soccer Stars only six months ago, Geisler and his executive team will continue to integrate new partners and acquisitions into their national brand platform as they look to continue to be the one of the largest corporately run youth soccer companies in the U.S.
