In August 2019, NEFC joined with TopYa! to launch the Juggling Club to provide a club development platform for all players within the club. Five months later, more than 2,500 skills videos have been uploaded from players within the club. The videos prove a hugely successful initiative, which has elevated player engagement to the next level.
Due to the success of the Juggling Club, NEFC is launching a Player First Skills-powered NEFC Winter contest and will be challenging players ages 11 to 15 to complete skills videos and help kids stay active during the winter months in the Northeast.
TopYa! has been a Players First partner since the initiative launched in August 2015, advancing the pillars of Club Development and Player Development. While Players First partners extend exclusive benefits to Players First-licensed clubs, of which NEFC is one of 90 currently in that community, all US Club Soccer members are able to take advantage of TopYa! offerings.
