Frequently Asked Questions

Where can my child participate in Soccer Shots?

Soccer Shots is held at childcare centers, preschools and schools, as well as public locations. Our public programs are open to the general public while our childcare center and school programs are only open to those enrolled at the location.

What type of equipment will my child need to participate?

Soccer Shots provides all of the equipment needed at each of our sessions. Your child should wear activity-appropriate clothing. Cleats and shin guards are NOT necessary.

How do I know the locations of the park programs?

To find public programs in your area, select View Locations at the top of this page.

Can I have Soccer Shots start a park program near me?

Yes! We are always willing to start a public program near you. The easiest way for this to happen is for you to form a group of eight children willing to take part in a Soccer Shots season. These could be children 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.

What can I expect from a Soccer Shots session?

Our weekly 30-40 minute sessions focus on basic soccer skills like dribbling, passing and shooting. Through fun games and positive reinforcement, children will begin to experience the joy of playing soccer and being active. We also highlight a positive character trait each session such as respect, teamwork and appreciation.

What happens if a session is cancelled due to inclement weather?

Soccer Shots attempts to make up all missed sessions during the course of a season. We will either add an additional week to the season or choose a make-up day.

How do I know if a session is cancelled due to in inclement weather?

In the case of inclement weather, Soccer Shots will notify you of any cancelations and make up sessions. We generally try to notify you of cancelations at least 2 hours before the start of the session.

The class is full and my only option is "join the waitlist". How does that work?

When a spot becomes available you will receive an automatic notification letting you know that you can enroll.

This email will go to all families on the waitlist and is first-come-first-served for the available spot. If there are others on the same list they have the same opportunity to enroll as you, so act fast to claim the spot!

Being on the waitlist is the best way to stay informed about added classes, or new opportunities for any current season, as we reach out to you first. We take your interest into account when adding more program sites or more time at existing locations based on our ability to staff up!

If you are on the waitlist, you can always enroll in another public location and remain on the waitlist for your desired location. If a spot opens you will be notified. Email us to request a transfer.

Special tip: In the case of high demand we encourage you to sign up for the newly opened space in your preferred class to claim your spot. Then we can refund the previous enrollment that you no longer want.

Thank you for expressing interest in Soccer Shots!
