Part Time

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 Charlottesville 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.
