Soccer Shots is positioned as the best-in-class children’s soccer program with a focus on character development, for ages 2-8. Soccer experience is NOT a requirement. 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. Soccer Shots is a national program with over 170 territories across 34 states.
In 2017 Soccer Shots Memphis 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 Soccer Shots Memphis time, we have been amazed at the stories and experiences we've shared with families all over the the area as we work together to provide a long-lasting and positive soccer experience for our soccer friends. 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.
