“Hi Anthony, the birthday party went very well. Coach Matt was awesome, and all the kids had a great time. He had a really nice rapport with the kids and got them all to participate. There was a variety of ages and skill levels but everyone got to play. All of the parents who stayed were impressed. Nicholas had a great time, and he loves his soccer ball!”

“I’m writing to tell you about a birthday party we attended today with my 4 year old son. It was a soccer theme party at Blueberry Park in Sewickley PA. Coach Kevin was hired through Soccer Shots to give a little lesson and support the kids in a game type activity. My son has autism, and sports are tricky for him. I was really apprehensive about the party because I didn’t want him to distract everyone with poor behavior. I was ready to let him just leave the party area and do his own thing. However, Coach Kevin started off the instruction with loads of enthusiasm and immediately learned the kids names. It was just amazing. He worked so hard during that party and gave each child participating a positive experience at their own level- truly, it was amazing to watch! I felt so much pride and happiness for my son watching as Kevin and all the other party attendees cheered him on as he made a goal. This was a wonderful memory for our whole family. I just felt compelled to send a note and hopefully you can extend our gratitude to Kevin, who went far above and beyond to make this party a huge success!
Thank you so much! We’re checking out the site now to see if lessons in Cranberry might be an option for us! Our son had such a wonderful introduction to the sport today!”
“Hello! Just wanted to drop you a quick note to tell you how AMAZING Coach Kevin was at Aila’s party. It was a diverse group of kids and I didn’t have very high expectations of them engaging for very long! I could not believe how great Kevin was keeping all of the kids interested, engaged, and actually trying to play soccer! There were probably like 8 elementary school teachers there and everyone was in awe of how well Coach Kevin could manage this group of kids! He was really enthusiastic, kind, patient, and fun. The kids had an amazing time and all of the adults kept saying that it was one of the best birthday parties they had ever been to. Thank you again!”
– Natasha, AJ, and Aila!
