While down in Phoenix for the first Development Academy event of the year we had a chance to speak with Robbie Elliot from SPARQ. Robbie highlights two of key elements that SPARQ and iSoccer share:
1) Quantifying ability allows players to measure performance and set goals to improve
2) Competition motivates players to work harder which results in accelerated player development
Robbie, a 17 year professional in the English Premier League and England U21 International, also speaks to the importance of young players getting as many quality touches on the ball as possible. This challenge is particularly prevalent in the US given the number of other sports, academic, and entertainment options competing for their time. As a result, “training smarter” or more efficiently with tools such as iSoccer is vital to improving the level of soccer in the United States.
iSoccer is excited to be working with America SCORES New York again, this time to help raise money. We are sponsoring the “America SCORES Skills Challenge powered by iSoccer” on Saturday December 12.
