Soccer Shots moving indoors for January sessions in WNC
Soccer Shots Asheville made their debut in Western North Carolina this fall, expanding to Macon, Jackson, and Swain Counties for the program’s first time. After a successful fall session, the program is keeping the momentum going with indoor locations to stay warm while still having fun.
“I couldn’t be happier with our experience with Soccer Shots,” said Kerry Hanemann. “The coaches are absolutely amazing with children and the classes are so engaging and fun for the kids. I can’t believe how many new skills my daughter learned and it was incredible to see her confidence grow as the season progressed. Soccer practice quickly became the highlight of our week!”
Soccer Shots is an engaging children’s soccer program with a focus on character development. Their caring team positively impacts children’s lives on and off the field through best-in-class coaching, communication and curriculum. The coaches at Soccer Shots are the best-trained in the business and their expert-approved curriculum is age-appropriate and aligns with childhood education standards.
Soccer Shots is a high-energy program introducing children to fundamental soccer principles, such as using your feet, dribbling, and the basic rules of the game. Through fun games and positive reinforcement, children will begin to experience the joy of playing soccer and being active.
Soccer Shots’ founding partners, Jeremy Sorzano and Jason Webb, were soccer teammates both in college and professionally. They formed Soccer Shots® in 1997 after recognizing a lack of quality soccer programs for children under age 8. They shared an entrepreneurial spirit, a deep love of soccer, and a passion to inspire children to live fit and healthy lives.
When Soccer Shots expanded to Macon and Jackson Counties registration became open for families in Swain County to participate as well. There are two age divisions — 2&3-year-olds and 4-6-year-olds. The groups are kept small — with fewer than 10 kids in each class to optimize time with coaches.
The sessions are designed to be 30-minute sessions that focus on learning a new skill and then building on those skills through stacked learning during the duration of the program.
Soccer Shots is set to launch the Winter Season in January and will feature six weekly sessions. In Macon County, the sessions will be held Saturdays at Trimont Christian Academy. For Jackson County, sessions will be held on Wednesdays at Jackson County Community School on Skyland Drive.
