TMCNet:  Soccer Training Goes High Tech with August Launch of iSoccer.org

Soccer Training Goes High Tech with August Launch of iSoccer.org

PALO ALTO, Calif., Aug 17, 2009 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- To raise the level of the game of soccer, one player at a time, is iSoccer founder Scott Leber's vision. After nearly two years of planning, fundraising, filming and beta-testing, the soccer educator is excited to announce the launch of www.isoccer.org. The site is poised to revolutionize soccer with its patented skills assessments and downloadable technical training videos for players and coaches of all levels.


To view the multimedia assets associated with this release, please click http://news.prnewswire.com/viewrelease.aspx?STORY=MTE4 iSoccer's launch follows Leber's successes on and off the field. Named 1997 Gatorade High School Player of the Year, he was an NCAA Division I top scorer for Stanford (1997-2001). After graduating with a degree in Industrial Engineering and co-founding the east coast youth soccer training business, Coastal Soccer, Leber has poured everything he knows about soccer education into iSoccer, assisted by a team of fellow Stanford graduates.

"To raise the overall level of soccer in the U.S., we need to focus on the technical development of youth players ages 5 to 17," said Leber, who believes that successful soccer players must first develop and then build onto a strong technical foundation in order to maximize their individual potential. iSoccer provides tools to assess a player's current ability and tailors training programs based on individual strengths and weaknesses.

Leveraging the power of social media, mobile technology and worldwide soccer mania, iSoccer now affords an estimated 20 million U.S. soccer players and their parents free access to the tools they need to develop individual technical skills to the best of their ability, on their own time or with their team.

Portability is also key. Registered users may download video training sessions to their iPods and take them to the field, where they can watch skill demonstrations on the spot, then practice the skills and record their results.

With pilot programs underway in Northern California, Arizona and Michigan, Leber says he's delighted but not surprised that coaches and clubs are embracing iSoccer at a formidable pace. "Knowing what to teach and how to teach it has always been a real challenge for youth soccer coaches, many of whom are well-meaning parent volunteers who lack formal training," he explains. iSoccer will help clubs and coaches fill that gap.

Plans are already in the works to translate the site into multiple languages and as word of iSoccer spreads, Leber looks forward to witnessing the impact it will have on the game he loves.
