Welcome to The Champion’s Soccer Academy (TCSA)

TCSA is Swansea’s leading independent soccer academy. We offer friendly and professionally run Football training for children aged 4 months to 16 years at playfootball.net, Swansea. We want every child to be confident, happy and to discover the true joy of ‘the beautiful game’ that is football.

With small group sizes, engaging, challenging yet fun sessions, our highly skilled, friendly coaches ensure we get the best out of each and every child, building confidence and instilling a lifelong passion for football.

TCSA is proud to have a curriculum based on extensive studies of some of the Premier League and Europe’s leading Academy’s approaches to developing top players and people. Our Director, Frankie published articles on these studies in The English FA Journal ‘Insight’. He has added in his 20+ years experience of coaching all over the world from grass-roots to Pro level. He’s even worked with athletes from other sports who have achieved amazing things...like Sian Davies, who won the World Tae Kwon Do Championship in 2010.

All of TCSA’s Senior Coaches have worked with numerous players who have gone from grass-roots to play at the Professional level with teams like Swansea, Liverpool and Real Madrid. Not only that, our coaches have all also worked as volunteers at grass-roots clubs with players of all abilities, shapes and sizes...so they have a unique insight into the many pathways youngsters can take to meet their potential.

What Makes Us Different?

Small group sizes

We limit the number of pupils in our sessions ensuring that all players receive individual attention and coaching so they can flourish to the best of their ability over time. We work extremely hard to make each child feel included.

Highly specialised and passionate coaches

We have UEFA ‘A’ Licence and UEFA ‘B’ Licence Coaches amongst a very passionate and dedicated team of people.

Uniquely, as well as the ‘nuts and bolts’ of developing Football skills our focus is on the much wider aspects of children’s development as we help develop confidence, focus, discipline, people skills and health in each player. We believe ‘better people make better players’ and we have assembled a team of proven experts in Mental Skills, Physical Development , Speed, Agility and Coordination, Nutrition and Lifestyle.


Our emphasis on creating better people makes it a win or win situation for our players. All too often in football, it is a case of 'sink or swim' for young players. Players are cast aside at all levels and can often end up on a slippery slope due to a lack of coaching and support.

Whatever happens, the transferable life skills our scholars learn will mean that even if they don't 'make it' in football (and we will help them to significantly increase their chances!), they will definitely 'make it' in life!

Pitchside Support

Because our coaches give 100% focus during their training sessions, we have a designated, friendly support team to look after you at Pitchside for all main/foundation training sessions. Richard and Marc are on hand to update you on upcoming events, pass on messages you may have for the coaches or Member Support Team and anything else you want help/advice with.

Family Atmosphere

We have Members’ Events. Whether it’s a game of Boules, a Barbecue, a game of Beach Soccer, a workshop on how to build your child’s confidence or improve their eating and lifestyle...we give lots of added value to build a stronger relationship between coaches, players and the whole family so we can squeeze every last drop out of their potential and more enjoyment out of the game.

Performance Opportunities

When players are ready (and they must be selected), we play a number of games against high quality opposition each year. Recent games have included Swansea City, Fulham Football Club, Queens Park Rangers, West Brom, Wimbledon, Arsenal and various other teams. We enter the Welsh Supr Cup in Cardiff and also play in the Junior PRemier LEague at certain age-groups. These are for Advanced players while games are also available for Foundation players.

A Safe Learning Environment

A lot of our players and parents comment that at TCSA, they actually get the chance to learn something in every session rather than just ‘kick a ball about’.
Whether an aspiring professional or simply playing for the pure joy of the game, TCSA’s programmes are proven to accelerate learning and help players reach higher levels of performance consistently and reliably. Our 'scholars' are educated in a culture of mutual respect, honesty and excellence. They are nurtured and challenged in equal measure to not only become better players, but better people.

Free Confidence and Skills-Bossting Session

We can offer a limited number of Free Sessions in all our groups so that you and your child are happy before committing to membership. Your child will eceive a warm welcome, a Free T-shirt and a written report at a follow-up meeting discuss the best way forward in your child's development.
