Program Overview

The TSA Junior program marks the initial phase toward entry into the Competitive Academy. Serving as a foundational program, it provides young players with access to coaching from licensed professionals, age-specific training, and an elevated learning environment.

Emphasizing individual skill development, fostering a passion for the game, and cultivating a sense of "team and teamwork" are the key focuses of this program for younger players. All players willing to commit are welcome and no player will be excluded from participation in the TSA Junior program. Membership in the junior program also gives players access to extra academy programming provided by the club throughout the season.

Participant Expectations

In our Junior Academy program, we hold a set of expectations designed to foster a positive and enriching experience for every young player. First and foremost, our emphasis is on learning and skill development, encouraging each child to explore and enhance their soccer abilities in a supportive environment.

We prioritize the element of fun, aiming to instill a love for the game that will stay with them throughout their journey. Alongside this, we expect participants to pay attention during training sessions, fostering a focused and engaged mindset. Respecting others, both teammates and coaches, is paramount, creating an atmosphere of camaraderie and sportsmanship.

We also encourage a strong work ethic, teaching kids the value of dedication and effort in their pursuits. Punctuality is essential, instilling the importance of showing up on time to foster a sense of responsibility and commitment.

Through these expectations, we aim to cultivate not just soccer skills but also fundamental life values that will endure beyond the soccer field.
