Company Profile:

Soccer Shots is the leader in youth soccer development for children ages 2-8. Our nationally recognized program offers a high energy, fun, age-appropriate introduction to the wonderful game of soccer. Our innovative curriculum emphasizes both soccer skills and character development. Our goal is simple: to leave a lasting, positive impact on every child we serve.


Soccer Shots Harrisburg & York has been serving children in our local community for over 15 years. Soccer Shots Harrisburg & York stretches from Dauphin & Cumberland Counties to York County.
