Since Cricket tots was established in 2016, the support and recognition they have gained from the industry has been incredible. Moreover, they are members of ukactive Kids and have earned Gold accreditation status by the Children’s Activities Association, both high valued seals of recognition to give parents peace of mind.
Cricket tots is the first stop for children looking to enjoy the dazzling world of cricket. Classes focus on 2 ½ -5 year olds, in an environment that nurtures development and curates their pivotal first experiences of being part of a team.
Cricket tots has found that franchising reduces a lot of the risk involved in starting a business because you are buying the experience and marketing expertise of the franchisor. It’s an established service which already operates successfully.
Everything from the brand, systems and processes are tried, tested and proven so you can replicate the exact same business model as them. Alongside the classes, Cricket tots can run cricket parties too. They also encourage franchisees to give back to the community, running classes for local nurseries and community groups.
Established in 2016, Cricket tots has been steadily building throughout the UK, with classes running in four locations in north-west London and also Blackburn. The franchise has also launched clubs in Australia and most recently, Barbados.
The franchise package has been developed with the aim of providing franchisees with all the knowledge, information and support to launch a successful Children's Cricket Franchise that not only has a clear return on investment but is also highly competitive in the market.
The Cricket tots team has a network of dedicated professionals from coaches, cricketers, business owners and marketers ready to support new franchise owners.
But what sets the franchise apart is the continual focus on running and creating franchise clubs that focus on the development of children in sport and the advantages that brings to their development.
The fundamental bones of the Cricket tots franchisee is ensuring the lead coach is fully qualified (ECB Level 2), the right venue is selected to hold the classes, and be integral to the promotion of their classes, encouraging sign ups and making sure all the classes run smoothly. The franchisee can choose to be the lead coach and get qualified if they so wish, and no prior experience is required.
A typical day will involve ensuring the classes are running smoothly, networking with parents to encourage sign ups, recruiting new coaches, sourcing venues and keeping an eye on how many children there are in each class.
