LAS VEGAS, NEVADA (March 18, 2022) – As young soccer players return to play this spring, Nevada Youth Soccer Association and MOJO today announced an exciting new partnership to bring world-class coaching to more than 12,000 recreational soccer players in Nevada.
Featuring hundreds of high-quality videos, the award-winning MOJO app empowers Nevada Youth Soccer coaches to plan fun, effective practices 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 foster love of the game.
“We are thrilled to put the MOJO app in the hands of grassroots coaches across Nevada,” said Melanie Stafford, Executive Director of the Nevada Youth Soccer Association. “Recreational soccer is the backbone of our sport, and where kids and parents alike learn to love the game. By making coaching easy and practice fun, the MOJO app raises the bar for rec soccer for everyone.”
“MOJO is proud to partner with Nevada Youth Soccer — and to make a real difference for thousands of recreational soccer players age 4 and up in The Silver State,” says Tom Arnett, Chief Customer Officer at MOJO. “Recreational leagues are where it all starts. And MOJO is here to make that first soccer experience the very best for every volunteer coach and every young player in Nevada.”
