Soccer Shots is positioned as the best-in-class children’s soccer program with a focus on character development, for ages 2-8. We also look to develop motor skills and teamwork. Our goal is simple: leave a lasting, positive impact on every child we serve. We want Soccer Shots to be the BEST 30 - 40 minutes of each child’s week.
Soccer Shots Richmond was started with the desire to serve children and families through the game of soccer. Using the world's most popular game, we were given the opportunity to form relationships and invest in children in ways that are far beyond just the game of soccer. In the last few years, we have been amazed at the stories and experiences we've shared with families all over Virginia as we work together to provide a long-lasting and positive soccer experience for our soccer friends. We run sessions Monday through Saturday at preschools and parks all over the area, all year round.
Our coaches are the “face” of Soccer Shots, as they travel to our partnering locations and implement the curriculum provided to them. We are currently looking for assistant coaches to join our team. Scheduling is flexible, meaning that if there are some mornings or afternoons that you are unavailable, we can work with you. Once your schedule is set however, it won't change. You will be at the same locations at the same times each week, and we need you to be committed for the entire season.
