Extra Training at Total Soccer
Total Soccer was founded in 1997 as one of the first pay-per-use soccer academies in the Lower Mainland. It was originally known as "TSS Academy" but recently, the soccer club arm of the business became a separate organization now known as TSS Rovers Football Club. Over the years, Total Soccer has become the most established and successful youth soccer academy in the province, boasting over 600 players annually. Players come from all reaches of the Lower Mainland to attend Total Soccer programs. In some cases, players even travel from outside the Lower Mainland as far as Kelowna and the Sunshine Coast to attend sessions.
Thousands of players have come through Total Soccer over the years. Many players have used Total Soccer as a stepping stone to greater success in the game - senior national team players such as Christine Sinclair, Terry Dunfield, Sari Raber, and many youth national team players. But Total Soccer is not just for top elite players. The academy helps young players of all abilities to advance their game. Our vision statement is clear:
Total Soccer strives to teach youth how to become skillful and effective soccer players by providing a professional and optimal learning environment. Our objective is to help players attain long term joy and success in the game.
Our training model supplements the work done by community coaches by breaking down parts of a soccer game into small-sided activities. The emphasis is to help develop stronger technical ability in players for the next level of play - whatever that may be.
Total Soccer is generally for those players looking for some added technical work on their game. All sessions take place indoors at the Total Soccer Centre where young players can be comfortable and focus on their training.
