All Soccer Shots instructors are enthusiastic, great teachers, and love working with children. The instructors not only teach soccer skills, but also work on improving balance, coordination, and agility with the kids. Soccer Shots also uses the sessions to teach children important concepts such as teamwork, sharing, and respect.
