You know how you always tell your players to go home and do their Daily Touches? And no matter how much you stress the importance of at-home practice, players just don't seem to put in the work?
We feel your pain. That's why we've been working with clubs and coaches to develop interactive soccer homework. Coaches can set assignments, track progress, and finally hold players accountable.

We've spent a lot of time developing our soccer ball from the idea stage to the beautiful final product we have today. Check out the development process below and notice the huge difference in grip between our prototype ball and the final product.
Exactly one year ago, on August 16th, 2016 , my younger brother, Marc, and I founded DribbleUp Inc. and began an adventure that has changed the course of our lives forever.
We started DribbleUp with the simple goal of solving a problem we personally faced as young kids in Brooklyn. Growing up, we couldn’t afford a personal sports coach and we didn’t have 24/7 access to an indoor gym. So, like many kids our age, we watched training DVDs and Youtube videos in our living room and then jumped outside to practice in our driveway. It was difficult, boring, and ineffective.
We launched our DribbleUp Smart Basketball shortly before the 2016 Holiday Season and quickly sold out of every ball in our inventory. Since our launch, we’ve helped thousands of players reach their potential by providing them with affordable and accessible basketball training, anytime and anywhere. We’re the number one ranked and rated smart basketball on Amazon today and our basketball is used by players at all levels around the world, from six year old youth players all the way to professional players.
Today, I am so excited to present you our latest ball, the DribbleUp Smart Soccer Ball. Soccer holds a very special place in my heart. As a kid, I played soccer religiously every week with my father, and in high school, I represented the United States in international robot soccer competitions.
Our augmented reality soccer app is second to none and represents a revolution in consumer soccer technology. We’re affording access to players of all backgrounds to high quality training whenever and wherever - all the while, making soccer training fun. Players can train inside inside their living rooms at night or on a rainy day, then take their balls to the field the next day where they can use our goal shot analysis and freestyle recording features.
I am so excited for you to experience our smart soccer ball. I can’t wait to hear your incredible stories of how our ball took your game to the next level.
Where you come in
We need your help Kickstarter to fund a large scale manufacturing run so we can produce these incredible soccer balls at an affordable price. We're very keen on hearing your thoughts, comments, and feedback as we develop new features and use cases.

Risks and challenges
Launching a tangible product is always a challenge. Manufacturers, shipping partners, and fulfillment centers must be coordinated and shuffled in near real time to get products delivered on time.
Fortunately, we've done this before. For a little over a year now, we have been manufacturing, fulfilling, and delivering DribbleUp Smart Basketballs to thousands of customers all over the world.
We're excited to do it again for soccer.
We've been working side-by-side with our manufacturing partners and have built a foundation of communication and mutual trust. We're minimizing the fulfillment risk by using the same Logistics & Shipping Partner that we use for our basketball products.
We've invested a lot of time and money developing a system and process for distribution of our basketball product. We intend to leverage our existing processes for soccer to deliver a high quality product to you quickly and on time.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
