WESTFIELD, INDIANA (March 8, 2022) — Just in time for a huge spring soccer season, Indiana Soccer and MOJO today announced a new partnership that will transform soccer practice for more than 8,000 active coaches, thousands of volunteers and more than 60,000 youth players across Indiana.
Featuring hundreds of high-quality videos, the award-winning MOJO app empowers Indiana Soccer coaches to plan fun, effective practice sessions in seconds, with activities that are customizable for the age, skill level, and preferences of each team and player. The MOJO app is powered by partnerships with FC Barcelona and US Youth Soccer, and built in conjunction with top child development and youth sports experts, to help bring together age-appropriate development and the power of fun to practice in order to improve lives through soccer.
“MOJO is here to put world-class games, activities and practice plans into the hands of grassroots soccer coaches across Indiana,” said Dave Guthrie, Executive Director of Indiana Soccer. “When we give volunteer coaches high-quality resources and support, we can change the game for everyone.”
“MOJO is thrilled to be part of Indiana Soccer’s toolkit, and to join in the fun, positive environment that they’ve created for the state’s young soccer players — and their coaches,” said Tom Arnett, Chief Customer Officer at MOJO. “The MOJO app makes planning soccer practice easy and stress-free, and learning the game more fun for everyone — and it works.”
