They offer day time and after school sessions to teach. Lessons are made and given to you, and are easy to access to attendance and lessons online. Management is easy to work alongside and communicate with. It is easy to find other coaches to pick up your shifts if you cannot teach them. The most difficult part of the job is working with very young children that might not be ready to participate in soccer instruction. Overall a fun second job, and great way to stay active. The pay is very good as well, especially for part time work.
As an intern at soccer shots I was able to get the all around experience. I assisted coaches, got the sales experience, as well as launched a new park. I was able to see how the hiring process was ran. They gave me the ultimate experience and I was able to see all aspects of the company.
I have never worked for a company this great. They always check up and ensure that you are doing great and if not they try to find ways to help. They truly invest their time in their mission and ensure that everyone is being heard and they assure inclusivity. The communicate very well on expectations and will help guide you if more explanation or instructions are needed. Overall I love working for Soccer Shots!
The hardest part of a Lead Coach is commuting to sessions with the equipment. Learning tasks for each session is time-consuming but not that hard to do. Coaching is fun, but commute + heavy weight from equipment is not.
- Very fun
- have to be very patient and good at working with kids
- a love for soccer is helpful to motivate the kids to learn the game and skills
- pays well hourly
- very flexible with your schedule
Coach (Ancien employé) - South Hills, PA - 7 janvier 2020
The owner never paid me for those 2 days of training, when I asked him, he told me I needed to completed the 3 days. So no sure why in the job description says you get paid for training? There are other countries that is ilegal no to pay for training so i guess this country is not too great after all. I had several few bad experience here in Pittsburgh from small business owners they didn’t paid for training m I guess my time and effort should be free. No thanks.
As a college student, I always looked for flexible part-time work that worked well alongside my busy class schedule and intense coursework. Soccer Shots provided me the perfect opportunity to work 1-2 hour shifts as often or seldom as I wanted.
This company and their goals are very transparent. You get to interact with many different types of children. They are all excited to learn new skills and improve on them. Pay is very appealing but hours can be limited .
The director for this company made working here a dream come true. The best job i will ever have. I put my all into this position, and seeing the results of my work in the kids smiles was the most rewarding part. This job was definitely not easy, but It became easy when i learned the ins and outs of every situation that came up over the years. Id love to teach others how to be a great coach.
This organization is a fantastic one to work for, and I have nothing but good things to say about it. In the past, I have worked for a swim school with a similar model but it was nowhere near as well-run as Soccer Shots. If you love working with kids and being active, this is a wonderful job. However, if you are not used to the normal difficulties that come with children or prefer to have an "easy" job, this isn't the place for you. The pay is fantastic--$20 per 30-minute class. It was easy to balance 15 hours of work a week with going to a top 20 college, and most days going to work was a great stress relief and something to look forward to!
Great place while in school. Pays well for a school job. Not so great out of school. Is a 1099 tax and not a w2 so it's harder to do taxes. Pay sometimes doesn't come in two weeks depending on what the boss is feeling like doing. Everyone is really nice though.
Sessions last for 30 minutes, You pick the kids up within a 5 minute time frame then you walk them to the set up field. Keep in mind you will be dealing with 2-8 year olds (high energy). There are about 3 sessions a day. "Free Days" you are paid hourly. Would only recommend to college students or retirees, however, not much cultural diversity. The kids are great, however, owner not so great. Looks are very deceiving.
