FRISCO, Texas (March 23, 2020) — US Youth Soccer (USYS), the country’s largest and most influential youth soccer organization, is excited to announce the launch of an all new kid-sourced video content series via Cinebody. This user-generated video content series is designed to keep kids engaged, busy and having fun while they share their ideas and creativity — all while focused on their love of soccer and the accessible technology of their phones.
The Cinebody (cinebody.com) app and video software allows kids from anywhere to collaborate on video projects. The Cinebody platform has aggregated video content from over 132 countries and 4,988 cities. USYS will designate project details like themes and timing, then kids can submit their videos. USYS will then select the best videos from the kid-submissions to create a final video, which will be posted on USYS social channels. The Cinebody app is available on iOS, and Android users simply upload their videos to the Cinebody platform. To sign up directly, visit bit.ly/USYSCinebody. Given the creativity of our USYS kid audience, numerous video projects are planned over the weeks and months ahead.
“While many of our State Associations are developing online resources to help players train at home, USYS is going in a different direction to ask players to submit creative videos to demonstrate what they do to stay in soccer shape while at home. This will be a fun, creative exercise that all players will enjoy, ” said USYS CEO Skip Gilbert.
USYS invites everyone to be a part of the fun. As we all navigate our new environment, we’re happy to provide a resource that keeps kids and families engaged. We hope to share, retweet and like across all of our social media channels so everyone can join in the spirit of soccer.
