Skills Contest [POWERED BY TOPYA!]
WAILUKU, MAUI, HAWAI‘I (Feb. 1, 2019) – With strong support from Minit Stop and Ohana Fuels, the Hawaii Soccer Federation (HSF) just launched its next TopYa! skills contest. The program is designed to keep players motivated and engaged away from the pitch – in a way which embraces technology to better player development and methodology. The contest launch seeks to hold every player accountable for their own development, which in turn gives players the opportunity to see more enjoyment and success on the field.
Since the TopYa! skill contest coincides with winter futsal, the program is powered with futsal content – such as futsal fundamentals, dribbling, and ball mastering. All of the skills challenges can be completed in one’s own time and space. HSF and its partners – TopYa!, Hawaii Futsal, and the MISO Junior League – are confident that players will find the content to be both challenging and achievable. Best of all, this is a FREE Program – sponsored by Minit Stop and Ohana Fuels.
There will be prizes for the top scorers in each age group. However, the most important reward is competing with oneself, developing persistence and an enhanced overall comfort with the ball.
