The inception of ‘iBaller’ began in Glasgow in 2016. 14-year old Lucy Sinclair was with her friends as they played football at the park during a typically cold, wet Glaswegian day. There was no joy or laughter as they kicked around the ball; lifeless. As she looked around, she noticed that there was a lack of enjoyment and involvement from the kids, as they were either forced to sit out and wait their turn.
From that moment, Lucy decided that she would make it her responsibility to make football fun again. Her mission was to create a fun environment for people of all ages to enjoy football in an unique fashion.
Therefore, from this point onwards – ‘iBaller’ was created and our feet do all the talking. Take football beyond levels.
The iBaller Skills Challenge is designed to ignite a passion for fun in players young or old. ‘Inspiration’ is one of methods that iBaller coaches use to deliver a fun way to help kids and a great time at the iBaller experience. The Skills Challenge Series provides a set of objective results that players can use to track their own personal technical development over time and compete with others to be the best “iBaller“.
It is important to note that the challenges are not intended as means of assessing a player’s overall football ability.
