Mark, and his wife Maureen, opened their first Soccer Shots franchise in Buffalo at the end of 2011. They expanded to the entire WNY area, quickly, and now even operate in other States! Mark's goal from the beginning was to provide the families in their community with a safe, fun environment for kids to play and grow. That has remained the focus, and guiding decision making for decisions. With the help of wonderful coaches and leadership team members, Mark looks forward to continuing to help the WNY community in any way he can for years to come!!
When Soccer Shots started in WNY in 2011, Maureen was a teacher. A few years later, she left teaching to care for her third child with Mark. While home with their youngest, she began to be more active in the program. Maureen has taken over operations, and overseen it's growth to the largest sports program in WNY, and one of the largest in the entire State. The goal is still the same: providing safe, fun programming for the families of WNY!
