"If I was to recommend one person to come in and teach the WHOLE game to your players so you could improve in ALL areas... it would be Frankie Burrows his TCSA Coches, and their TCSA "Elite Player Development Programmes""
Darren Laver - Creative Skills Camps
"A fantastic program that really works, the best coaching package outside of the professional game and better than some Pro Academies."
Daz Jones - Former Coach with The Nike Academy and Current Head of Development, Swansea City Football Club (EPL)
"Frankie's passion and philosophy is clear to see in his his academy. His ideas are based around a player centred approach and the extra special skills he and his team of Coaches bring means they are guaranteed to improve virtually any individual or group of players."
Andrew Stokes - Lead Coach, Manchester United International Soccer Schools
"In youth football in this country, we have a lack of quality coaching of a holistic nature which covers the WHOLE of a young player’s development. I have seen very few coaches, clubs and organisations that are able to deliver this.
But I wasn’t surprised to see during my week-long visit to Swansea that 'The Champion’s Soccer Academy' is already providing the type of ‘complete’ coaching that we desperately need in this country.
The interaction with parents was excellent as was the scope of the work with each child. The general education of the boys and the effect on their attitude was top class. I wouldn’t expect anything less with Frankie. The comradeship, response and positive attitude of the boys and coaches over the week has left a lasting impression on me.
We've had a flawed system in this country for decades. It's only now that there are some 'bright sparks coming through who are looking at the wider aspects of children's development.
We need a much more holistic approach…the whole ball game. You've got to look at everything that makes a human being and see how we can accelerate that development.
That's what Frankie's doing…and the kids will benefit BIG TIME."
You can't really put a value on the experience these kids are gaining, in my opinion.

"I've seen at first hand how Frankie can build confidence and help people perform better in sport, business and in life"

"Hi Frankie ,
Great to discuss at length the developments in your excellent coaching programme. I've always been very impressed with the coaching and preparation for sessions by Huw Lloyd and yourself. Your attention to detail and constant assessment of your session content at all levels is well respected by myself and fellow professionals.
I know that the standards you set yourselves and your staff are that of the highest level. As you know I have been involved for over 30 years full-time in professional Football and worked with some terrific coaches including the England manager Roy Hodgson, Steve MacLaren, Rafa Benitez , Mark Hughes and Harry Redknapp. I have also been fortunate enough to have been actively involved with the development of the likes of Gareth Bale , Theo Walcott , Alex Oxlade Chamberlain and Luke Shaw.
Working with the above has made me appreciate how important it is to prepare young players for the challenges ahead.
This is another key area of your programme that impressed me which should be a great comfort to the players and their parents. Keep developing your programme for the benefit of your young players as I know you will do.
I am pleased to be part of your continuing developments.
I look forward to hosting you at Fulham fc.
Regards, Malcolm Elias
(Head of Recruitment @ Fulham fc).
