SKLZ Introduces New Line of Soccer Training Products to Prepare Players to be Ready for their Season.

[[para]]16 new soccer products introduced into line with collaboration from Professional Soccer Players Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe[[/para]]

CARLSBAD, Calif., June 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- SKLZ, the leader in innovative training equipment and programs, today announced the launch of their integrated soccer campaign continuing the Prepare to be Ready message that launched in January. The campaign features new products and programs for use at home and on the pitch to help soccer players of all ages gain a competitive edge -- from youth to pro. The line was developed with feedback from coaches, and players including SKLZ Soccer Team Captains, Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe.

"Soccer requires extensive training -- even the slightest touch could be the difference between skimming the post instead of scoring the goal," said Morgan, forward for the U.S. Women's National Team and Portland Thorns FC. "It all comes down to being prepared and having confidence on the field. SKLZ gives athletes the training tools to make that happen."

SKLZ's new soccer line provides a comprehensive solution to help soccer players improve passing, receiving, dribbling and shooting. Additionally, all of these new soccer products come with free training videos. "In our new soccer line, 14 of the 16 are either patented or patent pending," says SKLZ Soccer Category Manager and Professional Soccer Player Brian Farber. "This innovation is fueled by our internal team along with support from our Team Captains and Soccer Sport Board which includes, Warren Barton (Former English Premier League Player and current Broadcaster) and Shannon MacMillan (former U.S. Women's National Team Gold Medalist)."

* Pro Training System -- the ideal coach's system for high-level training. The available components include agility poles, arcs, cones, cone collector and utility weights that allow coaches and athletes to train on any surface.

* Pro Training Goals -- a portable training goal complete with a crossbar, sturdy design and durable net. It was designed to take the hardest shots and stay upright on all surfaces.

* Quickster Soccer Trainer -- a two-sided skill-building rebounder designed to work on all surfaces. The low net covers passing and receiving and the taller side works everything from your feet to your head.

* Kickback -- a solo passing and striking trainer with a match-quality ball. Available in official size 4 and 5. Work on shooting, striking and serving to any target from 25 yards away.

* Kick Coach -- a wearable pass and strike trainer that teaches proper technique and develops muscle memory by vibrating each time your foot makes proper contact with the ball.

"You don't have to be a professional soccer player to have access to the most innovative products and training methodologies on the market," said Brian Enge, SKLZ President and former professional soccer player. "We now provide athletes, from amateurs to pros alike, the equipment they need to develop their skills and get their body strong specifically for soccer."

The new soccer line is available for sale through SKLZ.com and select retail partners. When used in tandem with SKLZ performance training products, athletes have a complete package of products to prepare them for soccer. Later this month, SKLZ will release a 9-week Get Soccer Strong training program featuring Alex Morgan and expert performance specialists from EXOS, the leaders in sport performance training who trained the German Men's National Team for the 2014 World Cup. This program consists of 3 progressive phases focusing on strength, power, and speed and will provide athletes with a high intensity program designed to show results on the field.
