HOW OLD IS YOUR CHILD?
MY CHILD IS...
2 My child is 2-years old.
This class is designed specifically for 2 year olds.
The perfect program to start your 2 year old, the MINI program introduces basic, fundamental soccer principles through fun games, songs and positive reinforcement. Helps to socially introduce them to become comfortable as part of a group/team and having a coach. Great first activity for children!
3-4 My child is 3-4 years old.
We split the children up into the most age appropriate groups as possible for maximum development and experience of each child.
The CLASSIC program for 3-4 year old is the perfect introduction to sports activity and soccer along with being part of a team and having a coach. We offer fun based, non-competitive classes that teach the children basic soccer skills like dribbling, passing, and shooting, while reinforcing the character traits that come along with being a good sport. We use the children's imagination in our approach so that they develop essential coordination and motor skills inadvertently while playing fun games. There are new skills and games played from week to week and season to season so you will never get the same class over and over again.
4-5 My child is 4-5 years old.
We always do our best to split the children up into the most age appropriate groups for classes for maximum fun and development. The CLASSIC program for 4-5 year olds is ideal for this age, as we use imaginative games in our weekly sessions to focus on basic soccer skills like dribbling, passing, and shooting. We also highlight a positive character trait each session such as respect, teamwork, and appreciation. Soccer Shots Classic will expose your child to the fun of soccer and provide the foundation needed to get started into sports and move on the next level.
6-8 My child is 6-8 years old.
The most common things we hear is that "My child already plays in a soccer league" or "My child has never played, will this be too advanced?"
Our innovative curriculum extends beyond physical activity to incorporate values like respect, sharing, teamwork, encouragement and cooperation. The enhancement of a child’s coordination, balance and agility is often seen immediately, but it is the building blocks being created for a life long love of sports that have the strongest impact.
In each 35-40 minute class, we focus on having fun while guiding children through imaginative games that teach basic soccer skills. We offer three unique programs designed specifically for ages 2 (MINI), 3-5 (CLASSIC), and 6-8 (PREMIER). Our coaches are energetic and enthusiastic, are great teachers, and love working with children.
Children benefit with increased psychomotor development through fun fitness activities. Soccer Shots encourages the development of active lifestyle habits at an early age.
2 to 3 year olds
Soccer Shots Mini is a high-energy program introducing children to fundamental soccer principles, such as using your feet, dribbling, and the basic rules of the game. Through fun games, songs, and positive reinforcement, children will begin to experience the joy of playing soccer and being active.

For nearly 15 years, Soccer Shots has been introducing soccer exclusively to children ages 3 to 5. Using creative and imaginative games, weekly sessions focus on basic soccer skills like dribbling, passing, and shooting.
