Los Angeles's Premier Youth Soccer Program!

We offer classes for 2 year olds (MINI), 3 year olds / 4 year olds / 5 year olds (CLASSIC), and 6 through 8 year olds (PREMIER).

Our innovative curriculum extends beyond physical activity to incorporate values like respect, sharing, teamwork, encouragement and cooperation. The enhancement of a child’s coordination, balance and agility is often seen immediately, but it is the building blocks being created for a life long love of sports that have the strongest impact.
In each 35-40 minute class, we focus on having fun while guiding children through imaginative games that teach basic soccer skills. We offer three unique programs designed specifically for ages 2 (MINI), 3-5 (CLASSIC), and 6-8(PREMIER). Our coaches are energetic and enthusiastic, are great teachers, and love working with children.
Children benefit with increased psychomotor development through fun fitness activities. Soccer Shots encourages the development of active lifestyle habits at an early age.
2 to 3 year olds
Soccer Shots Mini 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, songs, and positive reinforcement, children will begin to experience the joy of playing soccer and being active.
3 to 5 year olds (Pre-K)
For nearly 15 years, Soccer Shots has been introducing soccer exclusively to children ages 3 to 5. Using creative and imaginative games, weekly sessions focus on basic soccer skills like dribbling, passing, and shooting. We also highlight a positive character trait each session such as respect, teamwork, and appreciation. Soccer Shots will expose your child to the fun of soccer and provide the foundation needed to get started in the sport.
5 to 8 year olds (K-2nd)
This program is for children who are new to soccer or who want to build upon what they have learned in Soccer Shots Classic. Focusing on individual skill, fitness, and sportsmanship, each session provides an opportunity for kids to be challenged through fun games and team competitions. Children will also be introduced to tactical elements of the game as they prepare to play on competitive teams.
Global Goals was born out of a vision that the Soccer Shots franchise community could join together and provide opportunities for growth to disadvantaged children, through soccer, across the U.S. and around the world.
Global Goals and the U.S. Soccer Foundation
We at Soccer Shots believe that soccer is a powerful vehicle for impacting youth. That is why, in 2011, we became a proud partner with the U.S. Soccer Foundation. We aim to raise funds and awareness for children who live in underserved communities throughout the U.S. so that they have convenient and affordable access to quality soccer programs that support their physical and personal development.
Last year, your local Soccer Shots operator committed to donate a portion of your child’s registration fee to the Global Goals/U.S. Soccer Foundation in an effort to build a SportCourt playing surface at the B.R.I.C.K. Avon Academy in Newark, NJ. Children from the school will now be able to participate in the U.S. Soccer Foundation’s Soccer for Success program.
Soccer for Success Comes to Los Angeles!!!
This year Soccer Shots Global Goals initiative is providing a soccer Sport Court in El Monte, CA at Madrid Middle School. In El Monte, the average annual household income is about 200% below the federal poverty line. Children do not have access or money to participate in any afterschool programs, but the new court will provide a place to operate Soccer for Success programs.
The El Monte Soccer for Success program will start in the fall 2012 and should have 25-30 children participating in the first season. Soccer for Success is the U.S. Soccer Foundation’s innovative youth development program that uses soccer as a tool to combat childhood obesity and promote healthy lifestyles for children in under-resourced urban communities. The Foundation partners with community-based organizations across the country to operate Soccer for Success sites – providing thousands of children with free after-school programming throughout the academic year.
The El Monte Community Building Initiative group will run the program on the Sport Court. Its mission is Empowering Children and Families for Success.
Beyond the U.S.
In addition to our partnership with the U.S. Soccer Foundation, Soccer Shots Global Goals continues to support AMANDLA EduFootball, a non-profit organization working with youth in South Africa. The mission of AMANDLA is the advancement of education by the provision of sports structures, training and facilities for children and young people in disadvantaged communities in Africa, targeting specifically youth who are no longer in the care of their family.
