Got a great question from Chris this morning:
“I realise my boy may not ‘make it’ as a Pro but
I want to help him be the best he can be”
I know a lot of parents that are just thinking swans
and pro academy's. But they are too young, still
It’s great to see a parent thinking carefully about
the best route for his son to take, instead of blindly
following ’the crowd’.
Chris has correctly identified that being with a Pro
Club at a young age is not the be-all-and-end-all.
At the same time, Chris wants to make sure his son
develops in the best way…and maybe one day ‘gets
After all, he made his decision NOT to follow the
crowd in his son’s best interests, not because he’s
too lazy to take him.
Chris is proactive about helping his son.
And wants to know the steps his son needs to take
to develop to his full potential.
As it happens, I’ve created a step-by-step system
that ANY player can follow to meet his FULL potential
as a player.
I’ll get to that in a second. For it to work though...
You need TWO foundation blocks in place:
1. Get the best coaching you can get your hands on
Chris is already doing that for his son as he’s enrolled
him at TCSA. This means his son is benefitting from
UEFA A and B Licence Coaches with decades of experience
At all levels from grass-roots to Pro Clubs
Plus we work on wider aspects of development that are
Like optimum physical development – the ABC’s agility,
balance and coordination
2. Find the best environment for your son to develop in
This means an environment based around LEARNING.
Not win-at-all-costs and not with parents screaming and
shouting from the sidelines.
Get those areas sorted and if your son has the right attitude
and has developed a certain level of competence, he will
be ready for TCSA’s proven step-by-step system for
squeezing every last drop out of potential
3. TCSA Curriculum & Grading
One of the challenges I found working with young aspiring
Players whether that was inside or outside a Pro Club is that
Players (and of course parents) didn’t know EXACTLY how
close they are to ‘Academy standard’.
And to compound the problem. They might be closer in some
areas than they are in others (which most players are).
That’s why I created 6 levels from in FIVE KEY areas of the
Any player going through this system will know exactly where
he’s at and what he needs to do to get to the next level…
How do you access it?
You need to be on TCSA’s Advanced Small-Group Training
We are already FULL in 3 out of 5 groups with just one or
two spaces left in the other two.
APPLY HERE if you want your son to receive a step-by-step
plan to reach his potential:
Have a great day
PS - The 'Advanced Groups' are ony for ambitious players who are
already competent at club level.
