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 (whom we refer to as friends) we serve. We want Soccer Shots to be the BEST 30 - 45 minutes of each friend’s week. SSMEM runs sessions Monday through Saturday at preschools and parks all over the Memphis, Arlington, Cordova, Bartlett, Germantown, Collierville and surrounding areas, all year round.
