There is always a silver lining...
Given the recent developments over the past couple weeks and looking forward, it may take a little time before life returns to normal. While Wyoming Soccer activities are currently suspended, we believe there is no reason soccer players cannot enjoy and play soccer alone or with family members.
With this in mind, we are offering a special opportunity to get on board with the TopYa! Homework Program. This was something exclusively offered to our Wyoming 307 Select players, but with recent circumstances, we feel it is the perfect time to extend this program to all of you. TopYa! is an app that provides free skills contests for players to continue to play and enjoy the beautiful game.
With schools currently closed, and with all the entertainment options available to kids at the click of a button, it can be difficult for young athletes to get the time on the ball they need, so why not embrace tec
hnology and encourage them to spend some of this "down" time developing their skills!
With the program, kids upload videos of them performing skills or tricks to a database that awards them points. Even if kids aren’t achieving the challenge, a 20 second video might take 2 hours to get, and that is two hours they may have been spending on something much less productive.
This program is being offered for free, so grab a smartphone or tablet and get started! It's as easy as 1...2...3!
