Soccer Shots Charlottesville is looking to expand our team of instructors to accommodate our growth. We operate in childcare centers, preschools, and parks all over the Charlottesville area.
We are currently hiring for our fall and spring season, which lasts a minimum of 8-10 weeks. We're hiring now so we can use the next several weeks to train you, and bring you on board as we prepare for the season.

  • Soccer: Soccer experience is preferred, however, if you are great with children and have some familiarity with the game, that would work.
  • Working with children: Must be able to engage and interact with 2-8-year-olds and have experience doing so. This is very important.
  • Fun – enjoys having FUN with young kids, using your imagination, and watching kids smile.
  • Patient – must be a patient person who understands young kids.

  • CPR/ First Aid Certified You need to be certified in CPR/ first aid or willing to get certified.
We have sessions running Monday through Friday at childcare centers and Park Programs in the evenings and Saturday mornings. There is some flexibility in scheduling; meaning that if there are some morning or afternoons where you aren’t available, we can work around that. However, once your schedule is set with us, it won’t change. You’ll be at the same locations at the same times each week, and we need you to be committed for the entire season.

Soccer Shots® is the #1 Children’s Fitness Franchise in the country. Why? Aside from the incredible curriculum, leadership, and passion, it’s because we only hire the best instructors to work with our children. Sure, we want you to have some soccer skills and to be familiar with the game, but more importantly, can you handle a group of three-year-olds? This is what separates Soccer Shots from everyone else - we are in this to impact children in such a way that we leave a lasting impression on them that will give them the confidence to be successful both on and off the field. We want our Soccer Shots sessions to be the best 30-40 minutes of each child’s week.
