FOR SPRING SEASON FAMILIES:
In response to the social distancing measures being taken across North America, we are excited to announce a new way by which we will deliver the Soccer Shots experience: Soccer Shots On The Go! As the safety and well-being of our families is always our highest consideration, we want to ensure that your children (and you!) are still able to keep some sense of normalcy while also seeing your child learn, grow, and have fun with Soccer Shots! Please see more below!
We have some super exciting news to share - Soccer Shots is going online to kick off the spring season and keep your child learning! Soccer Shots On The Go uses our expert-approved curriculum to help families get moving and have some fun - at home! Soccer Shots On The Go features age-appropriate video packed with soccer skills, character development and creative ways to stay active!
Soccer Shots On The Go will launch for most spring players on Monday, April 6; all content will be delivered to your email inbox. A second week of curriculum will be emailed to you on Monday, April 13, and so on until we are able to resume in-person classes on Soccer Island.
From Soccer Shots Pittsburgh Owner, Anthony Calvano:
First and foremost, I want to thank you for being part of the Soccer Shots family and for partnering with us on the greatest journey - the education, character-building, and enrichment of children. I'm a parent first and always, so the health and safety of our children and the children we serve is top priority. Helping families to minimize disruption and to create a sense of normalcy during this time is also a priority. With these priorities in mind, our spring season will move (for the time being) from in-person to virtual sessions (offered via a password-protected online platform) to families currently enrolled in Soccer Shots, aligning with changes adapted by Soccer Shots locations across North America.
I have previewed Soccer Shots On The Go and am thrilled with the quality of content. Soccer Shots On The Go brings Soccer Shots into your living room, basement, back yard, etc. in a fun and engaging way while still allowing all of us to stay safely at home during this period of fight against COVID-19. We plan to continue with this method of delivery until it is widely considered to be safe to resume group activities on the real Soccer Island.
Our leadership team and our coaches are at the heart of what we do. By allowing the season to begin via Soccer Shots On The Go, this allows us to provide financial support to our Soccer Shots Pittsburgh team. We are committed to supporting our team during this time and humbly ask you to join with us so that we will be able to provide in-person Soccer Shots programming for your family in the future.
This is new to all of us, and obviously this is not the way we envisioned starting the spring season. Despite this, we are excited about the opportunity to offer programming to your child(ren) during this time. Soccer Shots On The Go will not only include the age-appropriate curriculum you are accustomed to receiving from Soccer Shots, it will also include activities and resources for the entire family to continue fun and learning after your Soccer Shots session. We ask for your grace and understanding and humbly ask for each family to try at least one session of Soccer Shots On The Go. After trying it out, if your family decides it is not a fit for your child, please contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will set you up with a credit for a future season.
We remain committed to providing best-in-class communication with our families. We will closely monitor all communication from the WHO, CDC, and national, state, and local authorities for safety updates and will move to in-person programming as soon as we are permitted to do so.
To ensure that you receive all future communications from us, please add email@example.com to your email safe senders list. We appreciate your patience and flexibility as we work through this situation as a strong, unified community. As always, if you have any additional questions please do not hesitate to reach out.
Thank you for being part of the Soccer Shots Pittsburgh family; we truly appreciate you and are grateful for your support.
