Farewell to Feilhaber – The Soul of Sporting Kansas City

To some Sporting Kansas City fans Benny Feilhaber felt like the soul of the team. Not only did he connect the offense and defense on the field but he also helped connect the fans with the team off the pitch through his haircuts & mustache personality. His many interviews and the Benny Fielhaber show showed us a side of him and many other players that we didn't have access to on game day. I couldn't bear to tell my son the news when I heard that [...]

DribbleUp Smart Soccer Ball Users Guide

When we first bought the DribbleUp smart ball the team told us we didn't need any instructions or a manual, installing and using the app was simple - but if we had questions to let them know. The DribbleUp app was simple to use and we started training with it the afternoon we opened the box. However, many of you who purchased a smart ball from our store have asked for installation and setup instructions so here is the DribbleUp users guide. If you don't yet [...]

Why You Should Let Your Soccer Player Watch More TV

Watching professionals at work is a fabulous way to learn the intricacies of the beautiful game called soccer or football. As with any team sport there is a LOT you can teach a young mind about the game but most coaches only have a few hours a week to train their players. To make sure their players fully grasp a concept coaches plan their practices to train their kids on one main concept per training session. So if your daughter or son practices twice a week [...]

Zepp Soccer Tracker App Review

Do you ever feel lazy as you sit on the sideline sipping your coffee and watching your kid race up and down the soccer field? Often I’ll go for a run during their training session or game warmup but I know they’re still getting a far better workout than I am. No question about it, fitness is an important aspect of soccer. Just look at the stats from our Zepp Soccer dashboard, about 25 miles covered in a few weeks of games. One year we had [...]

DribbleUp Makes Your Kids Want to Practice More?

If a professional soccer player told your kid to work on their weak foot, would they do it? One lucky Tuesday night in September a few years back we skipped out of practice a bit early for an autograph session with MLS defender Chance Myers. His tip to my son, "work on your weak foot". Myers went on to play in 27 games that season for Sporting Kansas City. He started and played all game for each of the five playoff matches and put away his PK in [...]

How the DribbleUp Smart Soccer Ball Wrecked My Kids Bedtime

Once upon a time there was a kid who didn't like going to bed.... I'm sure you've never been a part of that story before right? As if my kids needed another excuse not to go to bed, our DribbleUp smart ball came in the mail today. Sleep or Soccer? Finishing up our nightly pre-bedtime reading ritual my son asked "Can we tryout that new ball, just real quick"?  Normally, "wait till tomorrow" would have been the answer but we'd been waiting to get the smart [...]

How Does the DribbleUp Ball Work?

While impatiently awaiting the delivery of the smart soccer ball that we supported on Kickstarter last week I did more research on what I'm hopeful will be a pretty cool soccer innovation. If you've never supported a product on Kickstarter, one of the bummers is that you have to wait several weeks for the project to get it's funding. During that time the creators typically spread the word about their new product to help attract early adopters. There was decent coverage of the new smart ball online [...]

DribbleUp Experiment

The smart soccer ball from DribbleUp came onto my radar via Twitter today when I saw Tristan Tilllette share a video of his kids with the ball. I'm a sucker for innovative products and a soccer fan so the combination was too intriguing to pass up. I scoured the details of the Kickstarter product page and the more I read the more exciting the idea sounded. It seems to have the potential to be a really awesome training tool and the fact that creators (Mark and [...]
