Challenger Sports, the largest soccer education and apparel provider in the US and Canada, announced today that it will launch a complete team management solution, TopYa! Teams, in early 2020.
Since its merger with Denver technology company, TopYa!, in 2019 the youth sports organization has gone from strength to strength, engaging players and coaches around the world. TopYa! Teams marks the first in a range of technology products and services from Challenger Sports, which will provide organizations, clubs and coaches with the ultimate 360° approach to youth sports and club management.
New Decade; New Year; New App
Challenger Sports’ complete team management solution is anticipated to outshine competitors in the marketplace by offering a more robust and total solution for coaches and clubs. The solution comes as a natural evolution of the already well-adopted and successful TopYa! player engagement and skill development platform.
Designed by coaches for coaches, TopYa! Teams alleviates a coach’s need for multiple apps or separate systems. The solution enables coaches to centralise and manage messaging to players and families, email lists, shared calendars, scheduling and even assigning at-home skills practice.
The jewel in the crown is TopYa! Teams’ ability to provide virtual coaching to players and teams. Learning continues off-pitch and all season long thanks to the specially developed technology, which means players receive personalised feedback and assessments based on national standards — any place, any time — a feature unique to any other team management product on the market.
TopYa! Teams is also set to cause a significant shift for coaches by offering an array of features in its Freemium package; providing key coaching tools such as scheduling and event management; communication; roster management; player development and assessments; and player engagement for no cost at all.
“The fundamental question is how do we enable coaches, clubs and families to spend more time playing sport, focusing on their passion, and progressing their abilities,” said Taylor Ohlsen, Chief Innovation Officer for Challenger Sports. “TopYa! Teams answers that question without a doubt; in a way that other providers haven’t considered thanks to our unique features and disruptive pricing. Listening to coaches and focusing on their real requirements, and utilizing our decades of sports and technology expertise, we have carefully developed TopYa! Teams as a single source solution for team management, right in the palm of your hand — and we won’t charge the earth for essential coaching tools.”
To coincide with their attendance at the United Soccer Coaches Convention in Baltimore, 15th – 19th January, Challenger Sports will be launching their exclusive TopYa! Teams Founders Clubs ahead of their official product launch. Those lucky few coaches interested in signing up for TopYa! Teams can join the 100 Club or the 250 Club and receive major benefits and savings. Get that ‘Founders Club’ feeling and sign up today.
Paul Lawrence, Chief Executive Officer for Challenger Sports, said: “The launch of TopYa! Teams will be a significant milestone for Challenger Sports, and is the culmination of a lot of hard work since our merger with TopYa! early last year. As a product it will show just what is to come from Challenger Sports as we move into the new decade. It also underpins our company’s continued commitment to provide innovation and value to our sporting communities; for youth sports players, teams, clubs, leagues and governing bodies.”
TopYa! Teams will officially launch Q1 2020. For all packaging, pricing and access to the exclusive Founders Clubs, please visit the TopYa! website.
