EDP Futures

Training Hub

The environment, which reflects our club’s standards and values, will be positive and challenging to allow us to develop players who can think quickly, understand the game, and frequently execute the correct decisions with confidence when playing the game.
The TSF Training Hub (formerly Inter Academy) is a comprehensive and exciting new training program from TSF Academy which replaces the Inter-Academy Program. TSF coaches will train, educate, and develop ambitious and hardworking young players who have the desire to take their game to the next level.
Continuing from the winter session, we will further study the areas of Attacking and Defending principles, including transition in both functions.

How long is the training session?
The 1.5 hour training sessions will be intense and interactive.

We believe in raising the standards of training and youth development in our area, enhancing player education through their experience, and building a level of confidence that improves them as players and people. 

Who this program is for?
Male and female players U8-U14 of all ability. This program is designed for those that want to better themselves in the game of soccer and improve their current level of play. This is a step in a long-term process of development. Only serious soccer players should enroll in this program. 


Is there competition?
Players enrolled in the program will have opportunities to represent TSF Academy in winter and summer events. The selection process will be managed by the TSF coaches.  There is no guarantee that a player will be selected.
