In 2005 Solomon Ofori-Ansah was working as a substitute teacher in the Tulsa Public Schools, and he was often in charge of Physical Education.
But having arrived to the U.S. just a few years prior from Ghana, he was totally unfamiliar with most of the popular P.E. games the students enjoyed. So he began to devise his own games for the students, inspired by some of the soccer games he played growing up in Africa.
His wife helped come up with the name “Iso” from the Greek “Isos,” meaning equal or alike. While isoSoccer shares similarities with soccer, it’s significantly different and exciting and we’re glad to share it with the rest of the world.
