Can I have Soccer Shots start a park program near me?
Yes! We are always willing to launch a park program near you. The easiest way for this to happen is for you to form a group of 8 kids willing to take part in a Soccer Shots season. These could be kids from your neighborhood, friends from church or synagogue, or your parent groups. We're happy to help talk through ideas on how to make this happen. Please contact your local director for more information.
