About Us

miSoccer is the online representation of a soccer training system developed by Evren Asral and Ryan Hayward. It reflects the cumulative knowledge and experience gained over 12 years of running 3 "Total Soccer" academies in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Over 10,000 players have passed through these Total Soccer academies and each player has helped lay the foundation for the miSoccer online training system.

Evren Asral - miSoccer Co-Founder

Evren founded Total Soccer in 2002 and miSoccer in 2012 with former TCNJ Men's Soccer teammate, Ryan Hayward. The name “Total Soccer” is loosely based on a Dutch philosophy which Evren holds in the highest regard. It pertains to the idea in which any player can take over the role of any other player in the team. The theory requires players to be comfortable in multiple positions, therefore it puts high technical and physical demands on them. It is with this philosophy that Evren and Ryan originally laid the foundation for Total Soccer and more recently miSocce

Evren grew up in the NJ club system and was selected to participate in the Olympic Development Program (ODP). He was then recruited to play Division 1 soccer at West Point. After two sesasons there he transferred to The College of New Jersey and concluded as team captain and 1st team All-Conference. Evren graduated from TCNJ in 2002 with a bachelors degree in Business Management. His final assignment in college was to develop a business plan - the name of the business was Total Soccer.

By family tradition Evren is a supporter of Turkish Club, Fenerbahce. His favorite player of all time is Diego Maradonna and his most memorable soccer moment is being at Old Trafford for English rivals, Manchester United and Arsenal FC, for a FA Cup sime-final.
