 The InsideCoach-Connected football/soccer ball contains motion detection technology. It collects and reports data to your iPhone or Android device such as force, trajectory, spin, number of passes and number of touches. Then uses this data to provide coaching cues to help you improve your game.

We've integrated sensors within a football/soccer ball to help young and not so young athletes stay motivated and develop their skills.

Players who own an InsideCoach Smart Ball can challenge each other to games that will help improve their skills. Players can accept a challenge and compete and then compare their results in real time. Examples of challenges include Number of Touches, Number of Passes, Power Kicks, Spin etc. 

As you continue to improve your skills you can increase your leaderboard position. This is a great way to motivate yourself and your team on and off the field.

The InsideCoach Smart Ball, and Mobile App relays real-time coaching feedback through your earphones in real-time to keep you motivated to continue developing your skills. InsideCoach is your digital cheerleader and coach.

There are how-to videos built into the App showing you step by step how to perform a certain technique. Perfect for any level of a football/soccer player.

 InsideCoach allows you to assign specific exercises for a player to perform. Monitor your players’ progress and reward them however you like.

Our technology is an open architecture so you can expect third party apps to be developed giving you more choices to improve your game.
