The Yokohama Skills Challenge is a fun and competitive way for children to develop and test their skills at youth soccer tournaments nationwide. The timed Skills Challenge course features three obstacles where children dribble around three Chelsea F.C. defenders, pass into the Yokohama tire goals and shoot their way past world class Chelsea F.C. keeper, Thibaut Courtios, to earn their spot on the Yokohama leader board. Those competitors still on the top of the leader board at the end of the day will be awarded exclusive prizes courtesy of Yokohama Tire.
The ultimate award program connecting Yokohama, Youth Soccer and Chelsea FC was introduced in 2017, whereby a select number of youth soccer enthusiasts had the chance to travel to England for an exclusive, once-in-a-lifetime Chelsea FC experience. Participants were selected at random through tournament entries and social media. Winners traveled with Yokohama to the UK, where they were able to visit Chelsea's training grounds at Cobham and watch a home match.
