U12-U14 COMPETITIVE PROGRAM
The U12-U14 Competitive Program is a 10-month (Aug. – May) competitive program for boys and girls players in the middle age group phase of the TSC Player Development Pathway. The U12-U14 Program continues to focus on player development while also beginning to place an emphasis on team development.
Team training occurs two to three times weekly with games on weekends. Additional training opportunities along with speed, strength and agility training with our partners at D1 will be available and encouraged. U12-U14 teams will participate in two to three tournaments per season. All teams are trained by appropriately licensed, professional club coaches to provide the players with the best possible foundation of skills and knowledge of the game.
TSC U12 players will continue to train throughout the year in a player pool system similar to the TSC U7-U11 Academy program. As the year progresses, TSC Directors and Staff Coaches will begin to create more set rosters ahead of the transition to U13 and 11v11.
TSC U13-U14 teams will form set rosters at the start of each season and compete at the highest levels within the Tennessee State Soccer Association. Some U13-U14 teams also compete in various elite leagues across the region and country, such as the USYS Mid South, USYS National League, etc.
TSC U12-U14 teams are formed after players participate in formal evaluations led by TSC Directors and Staff Coaches.
Player attendance at all training sessions and games is expected in all TSC Competitive Programs.
