NorCal TopYa Challenge
Johann Cryuff famously said, “Every disadvantage has its advantage”.
Given the developments over the past few weeks and looking forward, it could be a while before life returns to normal. During this time, we believe there is no reason soccer players cannot enjoy and play soccer alone or with family members. With this in mind, we have moved swiftly with our partners TopYa! to develop and provide a free skills contest for players to continue to play and enjoy the beautiful game.
This program is free to all NorCal members, so grab a smartphone or tablet and get started with the 3 simple steps below!

Step 3: Develop Your Skills
Once you’re in the Skills Academy, you’ll find a few sets of NorCal PDP training series skills, along with the first stop in the TopYa! Juggling Club: Sweden! For the Juggling Club, once you complete Sweden, you will progress to Spain, then England, etc. on your virtual international soccer juggling journey! (Note some of the PDP players you see performing the skills at 14/15 years old are now college players, National pool players and professionals)
NOTE: Because every video you submit is reviewed by a real Virtual Coach, there is a delay between when you submit a skill video and when it is approved with your personalized feedback. So make sure your push notifications are turned on so we can notify you when your videos are approved. Once you’ve completed all skill levels for a particular country, you will receive a push notification to start you on your journey in the next country.
Below is our leader board which will update in real time. We will be announcing prizes for our winner soon.
