SOCCER SHOTS Partners with PA-West Soccer for programs for kids 2-5
PA West Soccer is excited to announce a new partnership with Soccer Shots, a soccer program focusing on character development for children ages two to five years old. The local Pittsburgh Soccer Shots owner and team have met with PA West Soccer and want to provide this opportunity to the local Pittsburgh clubs.
PA West Soccer President, Keith Renner, expressed his thoughts on the new affiliation, “We’re excited to begin working with Soccer Shots. We think our partnership provides our clubs with turnkey programming that has proven success and helps fill a need.”
This new partnership enables local Soccer Shots Operators and local member clubs to form alliances and share resources to create a participant pipeline that begins with Soccer Shots’ curriculum-based program. Once participants age out of Soccer Shots they can move on to the club level for more competitive play.
“Soccer Shots Pittsburgh is thrilled to partner with PA West Soccer and be endorsed as an opportunity to provide soccer programming for children ages two to five-years-old, an age group we’ve served since 2011,” commented Soccer Shots Pittsburgh owner, Anthony Calvano. “This mutually beneficial partnership will offer PA West Soccer and Soccer Shots an opportunity to build on some existing programs and launch new ones, and help build PA West Soccer club membership. Most importantly, this partnership lays the foundation to increase participation in the sport among young children across the country.”
