Pittsburgh Professional and soccer dad aims to improve youth soccer shooting accuracy with introduction of unique FUTBOLSHOTZ(TM) “Coach in a bag” teaching device

PITTSBURGH, PA, 9th March 2021, ZEXPRWIRE – He’s an award-winning screenwriter, a popular stand up comedian and a creative advisor whose work has appeared on Broadway. He’s also a Pittsburgh native and resident who has spent years volunteering as a youth soccer coach, helping his children and many others refine their playing techniques and win games. 

This month, he added inventor to his resume. Matt Wohlfarth, a native of Brookline and resident of Moon Township, started November by introducing FUTBOLSHOTZ (TM), a device he designed to help young soccer players improve their scoring percentage by helping them make more accurate shots on goal. 

“It’s pandemic-friendly,” said Wohlfarth, who developed the unique, patent-pending product after numerous schools and athletic organizations began curtailing or canceling soccer games and practice sessions. “My objective was, and is, to help young athletes continue to sharpen their skills in a fun way.” 

The product, which is sold as a set of four targets and is shipped in a free carrying bag emblazoned with the FUTBOLSHOTZ(TM) logo, is now being sold online at futbolshotz

“I’ve been coaching youth soccer for many years, beginning when my (now-adult) children were little,” said Wohlfarth. “Some kids have natural talent and others have to work a little harder to develop theirs. But every one of them aspires to be an effective shooter on goal. Just looking at a backstop one day, I realized that I could help them achieve that.” 

As a writer and comedian he knew that repetition is the key to success and learning technique and fundamentals, not only in comedy but also in soccer. That’s when Wohlfarth decided to create FUTBOLSHOTZ(TM) 

He enlisted the help of an engineering student to flesh out the concept, determine what type of materials would offer the most resilience (thermoplastic rubber, which combines the

characteristics of rubber and plastic), decide upon a color (bright orange for easy visibility), and develop the initial prototype. 

In the months that followed, he used the prototypes in a variety of soccer scenarios and recruited fellow soccer coaches as well as soccer dads to preview it in practical applications. They were impressed. 

One soccer dad friend said, “My son loved FUTBOLSHOTZ(TM)! We played for forty minutes and I had to stop because I was tired. It’s a great soccer training tool that allows me to enjoy great bonding time with my son. My wife plays with him as well.” 

Wohlfarth said that having four FUTBOLSHOTZ(TM) in each set enables the device to be placed in a variety of spots on the goal, which helps kids improve their on-goal shooting abilities from several different angles. 

His goal was to make the product available in time for the end-of-year holidays. The website went live in early November and includes a growing collection of soccer lessons, videos and more. 

Currently, FUTBOLSHOTZ(TM) are available via the website (shipping is free), and he’s now exploring other online and retail sales options. He’s also been in contact with a number of soccer organizations, who are considering adding the product to their coaching program. Each FUTBOLSHOTZTM “Coach in a bag” set of four targets plus bag costs $38. Quantity discounts are available.
