Yael Averbuch — How Former USWNT Member Brings The Beautiful Game to the Masses with Techne Futbol
The Game Plan
A former National Player of the Year at the University of North Carolina and two-time NCAA Women's College Cup champion, Yael Averbuch went on to have a 16-year professional soccer career, including significant time with the US Women’s National Team.Averbuch took her leadership on the pitch and in the locker room to the board room where she played an instrumental role in the creation of the NWSLPA in 2017, serving as Executive Director until 2020.Today, Averbuch is CEO and founder of Techne Futbol, a soccer training app she launched in 2016. Always looking to incorporate new skills and techniques in the development of her own game, Averbuch found herself doing small group and individual training. Looking to expand those efforts and reach more players, Averbuch was naturally pulled into the creation of training videos on YouTube and a weekly email she sends out every Sunday featuring a new training drill. This evolution from player to teacher laid the foundation for what is now Techne Futbol; a system that helps players get better.About The Game PlanThe Game Plan is a weekly SportTechie podcast hosted by venture capitalists Jay Kapoor and Tim Katt.

Vision of a Champion with Anson Dorrance
Today Anson and host Dean Linke are joined by Gloria and Yael Averbuch. Gloria is the co-author of Vision of a Champion with Anson, and they wrote it together when Yael was just 10. Yael dreamed up playing for Anson, but he didn't want to recruit a friend's daughter - except that Yael's talent was too impressive to ignore. On the show, Gloria, Yael, and Anson talk about being a parent of a superstar athlete, how entrepreneurship and athletics are similar (Yael is the founder of the Techne Futbol soccer training app), and how fitness is so important in women's athletics.Vision of a Champion is a production of Creative Allies. Intro and outro music by Conquest.

In today’s podcast, I interview the technical soccer goddess, Yael Averbuch. I first knew of Yael from afar, as I watched her YouTube videos that she posted of her dribbling and juggling drills. And I was like ‘damnnnn this girl is a hard ass worker and she’s got silky smooth touches that make me feel things.’ We recently got to know each other through a mutual friend and we bonded over the fact that we are both, what I like to call, “semi psycho obsessive human beings.” Or fully psycho, depending on who you’re talking to. People who are obsessive about their dreams are my kind of people. If you’re one of those people, I know this episode will resonate. Come join the club. Yael won two NCAA college cups with the North Carolina Tarheels. She has won three championships during her pro career with Sky Blue FC, Western New York flash, and FC Kansas City. She’s also played overseas in Russia, Sweden, and Cyprus. Yael has played for US at at every level of the youth national teams and represented the full team from 2007 to 2013. In 2018, Yael was forced to step away from playing due to ulcerative colitis. Despite not currently being on the pitch, she is still heavily involved in the game. She is the executive director of the NWSL Players Association. She is also the founder of Techne Futbol, a soccer training app that provides personal training for soccer players. I highly recommend checking the app out…like I said her touches make me feel things. In our conversation, Yael talks about: her addiction to being productive how positive things done in excess, can go to far why she enjoys not being good at things her process of mastery the one thing she would do differently, if she could go back and redo her national team career again the intimate details of her battle with ulcerative colitis and what this illness has taught her about herself And more.
