IT ALL STARTED WITH A TENNIS BALL…
While a scholarship athlete at UCLA, Eddie looked for ways to improve his game faster. When he learned that the UCLA Bruins basketball team practiced shooting into a smaller-size rim, he realized he could achieve the same benefits by practicing his soccer touch with a smaller ball. After that, he took thousands of reps with a tennis ball against industrial garages in West LA.
This small-is-harder methodology was making him better faster, and it was his secret weapon to outpacing the competition. Little did he know that he was on the verge of developing a soccer training experience like no other.
This secret is what TOCA calls our “small-ball philosophy.” It gives individual players the ability to train themselves in a variety of ways, in a fun environment, so they can empower their game and find their best.
