New Accelerated Development Program at TSC

Tsawwassen Soccer Club follows the Long term Player Development Plan (LTPD) as outlined by the Canadian Soccer Association.  This plan has been put together by academics, athletes and experts in the world of soccer.  The plan defines soccer as a late specialization sport and recommends not overdoing things too early to avoid burn out.  Experts also tell us not to create select teams at the early ages as this does more harm than good – it tells kids at very young ages they are not good enough.  The reality is that nobody knows at 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 etc.  who the best soccer players will be at 15, 16, 17 etc.  We as a club recognize this. 

TSC also recognizes that some players want more soccer at the younger ages. Some want more than one practice per week.We also know that not everyone is following the LTPD and that we have lost players because of what other clubs are doing.It is because of this that we will be offering a new Accelerated Development program next year.

TSC’s Accelerated Development program stays true to the LTPD and to our club philosophy.It focuses on extra training and development for those who want it while not hurting those who kids who are not ready for it yet.The program is open to all U8, U9, U10 boys and girls.It is a mix of academy and regular development programs.Players in these age groups can pick from one of the following programs for the 2014/2015 season.Registration will open by the end of the week
