Nature of Program

The TFC Academy Program is designed to introduce your child to the game of Soccer and develop their understanding of the game in a structured environment.

Our TFC Staff will run each training session and arrange fun activities that focus on increasing the players interactions within the game. Working to improve  fundamentals of the game such as ball mastery, receiving the ball, passing the ball, and striking the ball & the Decision making involved to utilize these skills.

Most importantly, we want to develop a love for the game to drive players to have the desire to train and get better. Players eligible for the this program are boys and girls born between 2019 and 2016. The TFC Academy is supplementary to rec soccer and not meant to take the place of it.
