Soccer skills and character development are the goals for the newly opened Soccer Shots program. Children as young as two years old learn basic skills and practice character traits like teamwork and respect in age-appropriate games centered on having fun. Owner Mike LaValley invites parental involvement, including Parent and Me classes, and uses coaches with elite level playing time and extensive coaching or teaching experience with very young children. Classes are offered in child care centers and local parks for $10/class with an 8-10 week season. Soccer Shots joins 140 other franchises in a national program which has been ranked #1 Top Children’s Fitness Program in Entrepreneur Magazine for two years.
