METHODOLOGY

The TPA methodology is focused on the long term development of it's players by applying five unified key points.

BALL MASTERY

In order to achieve excellence in soccer, technical ability must be taught and encouraged at all levels of the game. Ball mastery leads to confidence and overall more enjoyment of the game. TPA training sessions will highlight the importance of ball control, ball manipulation, and technical ability. 

APPLICATION

Technical, tactical, physical, and cognitive development are the four pillars of the game and will be present in all training exercises. These pillars can vary depending on the training session theme with purposeful learning principles to be successful in 1v1 to full game situations.  

TECHNICAL FOUNDATION

The difference between technique and skill must be well understood. Again, technique is the ability to perform a physical task, whereas skill is the ability to perform a task in a game setting under pressure. When teaching young athletes, technique must come first.  TPA will focus on applying the technique through repetition, utilizing a balance of low and high pressure scenarios. 

TPA STYLE

The style of play is important for each player in the Technical Performance Academy. Our detailed curriculum allows cohesiveness between coaches, players and methodology through risk taking and expression with the ball.  

PASSION

Soccer is described as the “beautiful game” played throughout the world. Our aim is to provide a player centric culture where players learn, develop, compete, and maximize their potentials.
