Total Sports Football Academy
IN PARTNERSHIP WITH YORK SCHOOL BOYS FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION
It’s time to think different. It’s time for the
“Total Sports Football Academy”
Starting THIS SEPTEMBER at PLAY FOOTBALL / ROKO – York
Total Sports Football Academy (TSFA) is the only official partner of York & District School Boys. They believe Total Sports are the way forward to develop Elite Football talent in York over the next ten years. Our coaches and staff work with children every day in schools as we teach PE and Sport to many children throughout the city every week. We have been running football camps for over ten years.
What is the pathway to the top?
We have an amazing pathway for our super footballers that links TSFA to The York & District School Boys Football Association, an amazing Scouting system from professional clubs and a chance to show case and develop your talent. It starts from playing for your school, to being selected for trials at York School Boys (starts in Year 6) and then being watched by professional clubs who go to the school boys matches – as that is where the considered best players in each city are playing one another. Total Sports Football Academy runs alongside this to bring many of York & Districts most talented players together to train on a weekly basis.
Why are you starting Elite & Gifted from U7’s when they do not have an U7’s-U10’s York School Boys Team?
After consultation with York & District School Boys we agreed that starting younger and bringing these gifted players together gave them the best chance to excel and develop. The TSFA Elite & Gifted is through invite only. We aim to bring gifted players together. Total Sports aims to give it their all in our coaching and opportunities to be seen beyond our academy. Professional Clubs who are watching U11’s will be invited to our Gifted and Talented sessions for our younger age groups.
Do I have to attend TSFA to play for York & District School Boys in the future?
Absolutely not. That is based upon trials and is completely based upon merit at those trials. We do feel that bringing the best players together and through working in partnership with York School Boys that being part of the TSFA Gifted squad gives you the best foundation, as you are working with young players who are at a similarly gifted level.
What are the Total Sports Football Academy Talent Centres ?
This is Friday nights and is about improving your game through playing small sided games, challenges and drills, through 1v1’s, 2v2’s, 3v’3 and mini games. It’s about enjoying your football and is chance to be seen too and considered for the Elite & Gifted Squad. It is open to all players. So if you play on a weekend or want to get involved or just miss out on the Talented and Gifted then come along.
You do not have to book blocks – you can book each week. But spaces are limited.
There is a Girls Talent Centre specifically on a Wednesday night 5pm-6pm.
How does a Elite & Gifted fit into Total Sports ethos?
Anyone that knows Total Sports know we have and always will be about ‘bringing out the best in children’ no matter what. This will never change and we do this through so many of our lessons, after school clubs, holiday clubs and weekend clubs.
We do feel is is fair that we also give the opportunity to those that excel too.
The Academy’s aim is to “bring out the best in gifted young footballers” and give them the chance to demonstrate their talent where possible and send them on to the next level.
