South Jersey Soccer League, NJ May 2021 - Youth soccer players across southern New Jersey are leveling up their skills this spring in a new way thanks to the South Jersey Soccer League 2021 Kickoff Contest, supported by NJBEST New Jersey’s 529 College Savings Plan.  Thanks to a new partnership between the League and Soccer Sphere, powered by TopYa!, all SJSL players are invited to join a special virtual skills contest showing off their soccer skills and getting real coaching feedback on the Soccer Sphere app.  


“We are very pleased to be able to offer the Soccer Sphere platform to our players this spring thanks to the hard work and support of the team at Soccer Sphere, powered by TopYa! and NJBEST.  We have all tried lots of virtual coaching and training solutions since last year, and this is definitely one of the best.  The players and coaches that are participating are already seeing positive results,” said Keith Rambo, SJSL Vice President.


Today marks the midway point in the Contest and SJSL players have another 6 weeks to build their skills and show off their moves.  Thanks to support from NJBEST, SJSL players are winning awesome prizes throughout the contest.



Players watch professionally produced soccer skill videos, practice the skill or move and then upload their best attempt through the app and get individualized coaching feedback from the Soccer Sphere Coach Connect team.  Players will enhance their technical, tactical and psychological skills with the Soccer Sphere complete person development plan, building towards the ‘whole’ soccer player.
