DENVER, COLORADO, June 9, 2016 -- The Colorado Soccer Association (CSA), the governing body for youth and adult soccer in Colorado, and TalentKode, the creator of TopYa!, a player development platform, have collaborated to bring @Home Summer Skills Challenges to Colorado’s current Olympic Development Program players, and players aspiring to play in ODP.
The skills were designed by the ODP Coaching Staff and Coach Mike Freitag, CSA’s Director of Coaching, to help ODP players, and others to develop their skills while also challenging players from across Colorado, the United States, and the world through TopYa!’s mobile app. The first set of 10 skills in the CSA ODP Advanced Training Series focus on Aerial Control and Juggling, and will focus heavily on a player’s touch and ability to play the ball out of the air.
The TopYa! mobile app is free and available for download in the App and Android Store. In addition to free content, The CSA ODP Advanced Training Series may be purchased for $4.99, and is one of the newest and most exciting skill paths in the growing library of skills content available on TopYa!. After viewing the challenges and practicing the skills, the players are able to upload a video of themselves performing the skill to the TopYa! app and get personalized coaching on their skills. At the center of the TopYa! app skill paths guide players through a learning experience that incorporates coaches and players along the way. Colorado ODP players are then able to create their own freestyle challenges for other players to “Top,” and challenge back.
The Colorado Soccer Association (CSA) is a non-profit educational and service organization that oversees Colorado soccer. Providing benefits for players and members, CSA hopes to advance the game with critical infrastructure while promoting sportsmanship and fair play in a safe and enjoyable environment.
The TopYa! platform is a COPPA compliant, mobile, and video-based learning hub that connects and motivates players, coaches, clubs, and parents to have fun with coach-created skill challenges and freestyle creative challenges against other players globally – anytime, anywhere!
