Lantana, Texas – Soccer mom gets tough, soccer toughness that is. Martha Castro RN is not your typical soccer mom of 4 kids. She is a personal trainer and home schools her 4 kids. All her kids play soccer and states she lives on the “pitch”. Soccer slang for soccer field. She states she learned a lot over the years and decided to share her knowledge with other soccer parents, players and coaches.
She began to research different topics in soccer and decided to developed a new local soccer website that is focus on soccer topics for parents, soccer players and coaches. The website currently has local weather, dfw soccer stores, dfe indoor facilities and regional soccer clubs. She added a log book to allow players to keep track of hours of training. She said she believes in the 10,000 hours rule that basically states after 10,000 hours is when players become professional players.
The website facilitates players in logging in their hours of training, keep track of goals, assists and take personal notes on training. She states the feedback has been positive so far. Many kids love looking at the graphs of hours that they have been training. She believes it motivates them to be consistent and work harder towards their goals.
She also added a mental toughness test that allows players to see where they stand. Other features include a “cloud” File storage system on the website. It helps keep any soccer documents ( medical releases, medical insurance card, player cards…) ideal tools for parents. She states that the other neat feature she added was the ability for parents to create their own soccer blog or team blog on the website.
She is currently adding different articles in the soccer forum that is on the website. She states that the website allows players to have their own soccer wall (photos, videos, post your next practice/events). She is very excited to have different experts participating in our forum on mental toughness.
When asked if she is working on anything else she states she just got her “soccer toughness iPhone app” approved. This app wiill allow players to log their hours of training on an iPhone and more!
