Toca, Toca, Toca! The new soccer craze to hit the Northwest

Feeling like you need a little extra help when it comes to your first touch? Or just looking for the next best workout - try Toca NW.

Refined's Erin Mayovsky is kickin' it Toca style with one of the most well know soccer families in the Northwest... the Schmetzers.

Sounders head coach Brian Schmetzer is supporting the new venture his twin brothers Andy and Walter Schmetzer say is vital to elevating your game. Toca is the most sophisticated training tool in the game right now all thanks to former MLS star Eddie Lewis. The former LA Galaxy winger and U.S. National Team member came up with the idea years ago.

So here is how it works.... it's like a tennis ball machine that spits out smaller sized soccer balls for players to react and enhance their first touch. Toca is built for all levels and the goal is to improve every player's skills. And it definitely works! Check out Erin's test run with Toca, Toca, Toca at the brand new Lynnwood location.

Toca NW's new location in Lynwood is located at 18021 Alderwood Mall Pkwy, Lynnwood, Washington 98037.
