Best Soccer Gifts – Soccer Training Programs

One of the best soccer gifts you can give your player is to help them develop their skills with soccer training. If you're not a soccer coach yourself then a soccer training program can be a great gift to help your kid improve their foot skills. Of course, this soccer gift won't have the same instant reaction as a pair of cleats or a new jersey but your son or daughter will thank you for the soccer training by the end of the next season.

Dribble Up Soccer Juggling App

The Dribble Up app has 3 main ways you can improve your soccer skills: ball control, shooting, and juggling. We've done a soccer shooting app review so now it's time for a look at the Dribble Up juggling feature. You get to the juggle tracker from the main user screen of the app by clicking on the Juggling Tile. At that point it asks you to roll your Dribble Up soccer ball into the tracker to get started juggling.  That step is pretty straight forward, use [...]

One of the reasons it made a difference is that they went through playlists in the smart ball app every day. Those consistent touches on the ball really helped develop their muscle memory so the motions of standard fakes and feints were more natural. Of course it takes some discipline to do technical footwork training every day consistently in the summer. One of the questions we get from some soccer [...]

Dribble Up Soccer Skills Contest Guide

Dribble Up team leaderboards are no longer part of the DribbleUp soccer app which makes it more difficult to run skills contests.  We've requested a return of this feature to the Dribble Up app but for the time being it's not an option. You can still run contests but its a more manual process than it used to be.  The Dribble Up soccer ball, smart ball app, and the coach’s dashboard helped us run a soccer skills contest this summer during the World Cup. If you're [...]

Dribble Up Soccer Shooting App Review

The shooting app feature has been removed from the DribbleUp app. It wasn't perfect but we had a good time with it in the backyard. It's too bad that the app doesn't support shooting any longer but the team decided to focus on the Dribble Up soccer skills features over the shooting functionality. You can read more about how we use the ball to help our players get better at foot skills in our Dribble Up Player & Parent Guide. The Dribble Up soccer shooting app [...]

Do Dribble Up Soccer Drills Help in a Game?

Last week we held our first Soccer Tech Expo where players and teams got the chance to try out various soccer technologies like the Dribble Up smart ball. One fun thing about the event was that we got to answer a lot of questions from parents and players about how we use soccer tech for skill development. One family stopped by on the way to a tournament match and the dad was asking how the drills in the Dribble Up app would help his son in [...]
