Weplay.com Launches Youth Sports Skills and Drills Library for Parents, Coaches and Kids
Youth sports community site Weplay.com has launched a youth sports Skills and Drills library. Initially launched with baseball, softball and soccer, the Skills and Drills library features instructional videos from pros such as baseball stars Derek Jeter and Ryan Howard, softball stars Jennie Finch and Monica Abbott, and soccer stars Jonathan Borstein and Brandi Chastain. The library also includes collections from leading online sports sites.
"Weplay is dedicated to providing coaches, parents and kids the information and tools they need to stay organized, get their questions answered, share and save memories and have more fun with less effort," said Steve Hansen, Weplay CEO. "Skills and Drills is an exciting step that represents a partnership between premiere sports professionals, content partners and major organizations to help the youth sports community as a whole. We are looking forward to forging similar partnerships as we launch new sports for Skills and Drills."
Skills and Drills consists of several hundred videos, 3D simulations and diagrams organized by skill, such as base running, hitting or fielding for baseball and softball or goalkeeping, defense and passing for soccer. The comprehensive library is also organized by skill level so that parents, coaches and kids can find the right drills based on the age of their teams and leagues.
