What to WearChildren should be dressed in comfortable clothes and sneakers. Parents/guardians are encouraged to consider the weather when planning for the session, as most of our year-round programs take place outside. Oftentimes, it is helpful to have an extra layer to remove and/or add during days of wind, varying temperatures, and light rain. For after-school sessions at elementary schools, it's best if children DO NOT get changed for Soccer Shots. As long as children are wearing sneakers and something they can comfortably play in during recess, they will be all set for Soccer Shots. If many children get changed, it often takes away from time on the field.
We also love to see children wear their Soccer Shots Jersey each week*!
Cleats and Shin GuardsCleats and shin guards are not required for our programs, and most children will not wear them until the Premier programs (ages 5-8); even in Premier, cleats and shin guards are not required.
For the sites that have an indoor alternative, sneakers are required for play.
What to BringThe Soccer Shots coach will supply soccer balls, cones, goals, and all else that is needed for the session. Children should have their own water bottle, and parents/guardians are welcome to bring chairs and/or blankets to enjoy a comfortable view from the sideline!
