The Importance of Role Modeling in a Child’s Life

Positive role modeling is key in any child’s development and learning process. Our children learn by watching and emulating before they can even process verbal commands. Aristotle believed that with positive role modeling we learn virtue and honor in the context of socialization. Let’s think about this for a minute…How do those around our children (teachers, family members, parents, friends) deal with various situations? Are they happy, energetic, caring, angry, disapproving?

It’s important to provide positive role modeling throughout our children’s lives. It gives them an example of how to react in certain situations, a figure to aspire to as they grow up, goals to reach as they experience life, a pattern of behavior that they will copy as they mature.

With that in mind, Soccer Shots’ innovative curriculum extends beyond physical activity to incorporate values like teamwork, encouragement and cooperation. The enhancement of your child’s coordination, balance and agility is often seen immediately, but it is the building blocks being created for a life-long love of sports that have the strongest impact. In each 35-40 minute class, our experienced and enthusiastic instructors focus on having fun while guiding your children through imaginative games that teach basic soccer skills. Our trained instructors are energetic, great teachers, love working with children and strive to be a positive influence in their lives!

We believe it is important that all children have a positive first experience with organized sports. Our goal is simple: to leave a lasting, positive impact on every child we serve.
