DENVER (Nov. 02, 2016) – Lacrosse icon Paul Rabil and TopYa! creator Talentkode, are excited to announce that Paul Rabil Experience, the first subscription platform created for lacrosse skilling, is now part of the Talentkode family. An early preview of the new Paul Rabil Experience powered by TopYa! will be available at the U.S. Lacrosse Convention in Baltimore, Md. in January 2017.
"From the start, our goal was to build the Paul Rabil Experience into a skill development platform that unlocked access to lacrosse players everywhere wanting to improve," said Paul Rabil, founder of Paul Rabil Experience. "By joining forces with TalentKode, I'm confident this goal can be accelerated with their superior mobile app technology and sales channels."
Rabil, an eight-time All-Pro in Major League Lacrosse, was the 2015 MLL Championship Coca-Cola MVP and is a two-time MLL MVP. The Maryland native is one of three players in lacrosse to have won an MLL, NLL, World Championship and Division I Championship during his career. Lacrosse Magazine’s 2015 Person of the Year, Rabil led MLL in goals in 2016, registering 43.
Together, the two innovative companies will continue to reach players around the world, combining youth development and technology to inspire and engage athletes to spend more time being active and playing sports. Rabil will serve as the GM of TopYa! Lacrosse and join Talentkode’s advisory board. Paul Rabil Experience will continue to work with TalentKode with a focus on mobile app development, sales, user-generated content and business development. TopYa! is the first ever COPPA-compliant, mobile video- based skilling and freestyle challenge sports platform. The app has inspired kids in USA, UK, India and 20 other countries of all athletic levels and abilities to get active. Using skill and creativity, players have logged millions of vital minutes of time on practice at home – beyond what they’ve done at their sport or school facility.
"We are so excited to have Paul Rabil join the TalentKode leadership team to offer the best platform for youth lacrosse skill development in the marketplace," said Jason Keller, Managing Partner of TalentKode. "Paul's deep expertise in the sport will also bring insight to our industry leading Advisory Board which supports the TopYa! mission of getting kids active."
