If your child is not having fun and engaged in the games to start, don’t panic and be patient. It can take several weeks for children to get comfortable with new adults and other kids if this is their first time participating. If you notice a weekly pattern developing just notify their coach or director immediately to address the concern to discuss the best resolution for the child.
At Soccer Gemz it is extremely important to provide outstanding customer service on a consistent basis.

We understand that families have other obligations, which is why Soccer Gemz is designed to provide convenience in your schedule to help reduce the chances of missed classes. However, should you know your child will miss a class we ask that you notify the instructor which helps improve communication between parents and Soccer Gemz. For the best results we strongly encourage attending every class. However, instructors always review the move of the day from the previous week so if your child does miss a class, he/she will receive a quick overview. Missed classes cannot be made up.
