With three kids of their own, Mark Miller and his wife Maureen wanted to find a way to introduce their children to sports. But Mark, a former elementary school physical education teacher, and Maureen, an elementary school special education teacher, found most programs they had to choose from were competitive and placed children in a team setting that did little to develop their individual skills. That’s when SoccerShots was born.
SoccerShots is a non-competitive program that encourages kids to go outside and be active while teaching them individual skills and giving them a positive experience in sports at a young age. Coaches lead age-appropriate creative games that utilize a child’s imagination and teach kids soccer skills – making learning fun! Some day, kids will grow up and everything will be a competition – from getting a job, to finding a spouse, to even finding a decent parking spot! SoccerShots was created to let kids keep their fun-loving nature while not putting them in an exclusionary, highly competitive arena. Introducing children to sports at a young age is fantastic to encourage a healthy lifestyle, and SoccerShots provides a great first impression.
Mark (now Coach Mark!) and Maureen held their first season in January 2012 and had a little over 70 kids partake. The following spring, over 600 children took park in SoccerShots at facilities all over Buffalo and Western New York! With programs for kids aged 2-8, SoccerShots is growing by leaps and bounds thanks to parents and facilities that appreciate the message SoccerShots delivers to kids each and every session: have fun!
More about the directors: Coach Mark has been playing soccer since the third grade and has a degree in education. He and Maureen have worked hard to build a staff that shares their passion and SoccerShots vision of allowing kids to be kids while introducing them to sports and helping them learn the fun side of physical activity. Coach Mark and Maureen have three children, and with SoccerShots off the ground and running, they’re happy to be able to provide their own kids with a program that gives a positive first impression with sports.
