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.
How does the enrollment fee work?
Our enrollment fee is charged once per school year (fall-summer) and helps us offset the cost of various service and administrative fees necessary to run our programs. It also helps cover the cost of your child’s jersey. Once paid, your child will automatically receive a Soccer Shots jersey in the mail! As a result, the enrollment fee is non-refundable.
Will I receive photos or videos of my child participating in Soccer Shots?
For a variety of reasons, photos and videos of sessions are not guaranteed. First and foremost, we want our coaches focused exclusively on your child’s experience within a session and not on taking photos or videos. Additionally, concerns around liability as well as photo/video quality are also occasionally at play. Photos/videos may be used or distributed on occasion, but again, not guaranteed. If you are curious to see your child in action at their school and are unable to regularly do so, we encourage you to arrange a drop-in visit with your child’s school or reach out to see if they would be willing to accommodate your photo or video requests!
