Starting this month, Vancouver Island Wave will begin rolling out iSoccer in order to motivate its players to spend more time individually with the ball working on developing technical skills.
“We recognize that the technical level of our players must be improved. The reality of our situation is that we don’t get to spend enough time with the players. We believe that the isoccer program encourages the players to develop their technique in their own time” said Andrew Latham, head coach of the Vancouver Island Wave.” The player’s response to the program so far has been very encouraging”.
“We are very excited to be working with Vancouver Island Wave to help ignite player development within their organization,” said Scott Leber, iSoccer Founder and CEO. “Vancouver Island Wave has a commitment to providing the best possible experience for their players, and iSoccer provides the tools to help them maximize their potential and take their soccer ability to the next level!”
Since launching, iSoccer has developed a national testing standard to assess players, and has collected over 500,000 assessments in the past two years. More than 200 youth organizations, five state soccer organizations and eight national organizations – as well as high school and college coaches – have all partnered with iSoccer to improve their players and their teams. iSoccer’s mission is to ‘Raise the Level of the Game, One Player at a Time.’ To learn more, go to: www.iSoccer.org.
