classic travel

The Classic program is for kids who are looking for more practices, heightened game intensity, personal challenges, and most importantly, a great soccer experience. Players in the Classic program are placed on a dedicated roster, where practices and training are focused on the development of the team as a whole so the kids can develop skills and experience to be more competitive in games by working together. There is no internal competition for placement.

TCSA offers professional coaching for Classic teams. Alternatively, parents may coach a Classic team after completion of a league licensing program.

Guarantee Games & Tournaments

Classic teams play 8 league games per season and at least one tournament per year. There may be additional game opportunities for Classic players if there are multiple teams in an age division.

Home Field Advantage

Half of the games are located on our home fields at James Breen Park. Away games are typically within a 30-60 minute driving radius.

Classic & Recreational

Classic players are allowed to continue playing with their Rec team if they wish to register in both programs.

Balance Between Youth Activities

Training and game schedules in Classic allow balance for kids who want to play competitive soccer, yet leave time for other sports or activities. TCSA strongly encourages participation in all youth activities!

Tryouts for new teams are held in May. Whole teams may be brought into the program with no tryouts required. There may be opportunities for your child to attend a Classic practice to get a feel for the program.

Goalkeeper training

Goalkeepers are a key element to the game and require specialized training for the position. Because TCSA values the quality of all of our goalkeepers' development, we offer goalkeeper specific training to all players looking to play the position. Goalkeepers are offered training to help them learn technical details of the position and to practice proper techniques and tactics based on their age and ability, as well as the psychology and physical demands of the position.

Goalkeeper Training is offered during the fall and spring outdoor season at no extra cost to our travel players.

fast footwork training

Fast Footwork Training is designed to improve an individual player's comfort level with the ball. It gives the player the opportunity to practice what they have learned in training in addition to learning new moves in a no pressure environment. Players are encouraged to be more creative with the ball in 1v1 play, which allows them to get more touches on the ball. Repetition is the key to mastery; the more players practice as individuals the more comfortable they become using what they have been taught against other players in game situations.

Players will work with various coaches within TCSA's coaching staff. They will also learn technical and tactical details about the game. Training is meant to be fun for the players and gives them the chance to experience different perspectives and techniques by working with a variety of coaches. All Classic players are highly encouraged to attend Fast Footwork Training as often as possible. Players should bring a ball and water and must wear shin guards.
