Soccer Shots is offering fun, non-competitive soccer skills classes for kids ages 3-5 after school on Tuesdays this Fall at The Marylhurst School. Soccer Shots will meet once a week at The Marylhurst School to provide a high energy, fun introduction to soccer. Soccer Shots is not a league: we are 35-minute classes that uses a creative, age-appropriate curriculum to introduce basic soccer skills. We take the game further with a focus on character development by introducing character words each week. If you have any questions about the class or Soccer Shots feel free to contact Soccer Shots at coach@soccershots.org or by calling (503) 913-4542. To register, visit pdx.ssreg.org.
