TSC - Becoming an Elite Youth Development Club
Towamencin Soccer Club is building a solid reputation as a highly competitive club in the Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer Association (EPYSA) and the results are showing for many reasons:
Continued success of our Travel Teams.
A progressive Intramural division as measured by the number of new travel teams and players who’ve been jumping from intramurals to our travel clubs.
The Club offers "something for everyone” and focuses on developing the abilities of all players at all levels.
Training, both youth (player)and adult (coaching)is encouraged, emphasized and readily available from our training staff.
TSC continues to strive to better prepare players making the jump from Intramural to travel. The clubs heavy emphasis on strong training programs such as our professional training weeks and summer camp run by the clubs Director of coaching, Chris Felber, have received acclaim as being "the highlight of the season, great fun yet highly developmental”. Additionally we’re now in the second year of the TSC player development academy run indoors during the winter. Academy programs are specially aimed at select level players looking for a chance to play through the winter and develop their skills to a level that they will be ready to compete and play for our travel teams in the spring. In 2010 we have also introduced an academy program for younger age travel teams looking to enhance their team play so they can compete in State wide competitions through the winter and spring.
On top of these programs we also added our first U8 travel and U8 select teams last fall building more options for youth players to choose from in TSC. Towamencin has really become a great place for all players starting out their soccer careers.
Beginning with TSC’s intramural division (IM). For ages (5-17) this program is for players wanting to learn the game, play and have fun.
Our Select teams program, a progression from IM is aimed at developing skilled players with assistance from our professional and travel coaching teams.
Travel teams are for players looking for the highest level of competition locally and nationally, TSC competes in the inter-county soccer league (ICSL).
What’s new at TSC?
TSC will continue to start the select team formation by end of August, which gives the teams additional formation time and coaching. The select teams will be handpicked teams for players that want to play travel but are not ready for the every week commitment or perhaps feel they need to develop their skill for one more season. What the select team players will offer is a night of Professional training to develop the individual skills of players on the team plus the two nights of games in the IM division.
This is just another option at Towamencin Soccer Club for our young players and another step in the right direction to make TSC truly an Elite Youth Development Club.
