West Philly Spotlight: Soccer Shots Comes To West Philly

I am so excited that Soccer Shots is going to have a class right here in West Philly!  I've heard great things about the program (they have 7 other locations around the city including two weekday morning programs) and I have been wanting to check it out for some time now. 

Location: Calvary United Methodist Church (Gym)--48th and Baltimore Ave.
Dates: Fridays, January 10th--February 28th
Times:  4:30pm and 5:15pm
Ages: 2-5
Cost: $105 for the 8 week season
Register Online:  Soccer Shots in West Philly!

It's hard to find soccer instruction for younger kids, so with classes geared to kids as young as two years old, Soccer Shots should be a great way to get kids interested in the game from an early age.
Soccer is significant part of our family story.  jb was a superstar soccer player in high school and was offered scholarships to several colleges based on her superior soccer skills.  She has coached several teams and played in a few adult leagues (most recently a co-ed league right here in Philly where she played with Uncle Daniel).  

Obviously, soccer is one of the things she's long looked forward to sharing with our kids - as was evidenced when she got Leo a soccer ball for his first Christmas...he was six months old!  Of course he still has it and ever since he could walk he's LOVED going out to kick the ball around with jb and/or Uncle Daniel.  

Leo is super pumped to start these classes, and I'm so glad to see another option for preschool aged kids here in West Philly.  I'm also very glad to have an active and indoor class to burn off some of this wintertime energy.  The winter season starts January 10th - so be sure and check it out!

Disclosure: Soccer Shots provided a discount on our family's registration.  All opinions are my own.
