Since TSS Academy opened in 1997, we have been helping young players develop in the game around the Lower Mainland of British Columbia. Much has changed over that time. TSS has evolved from solely a supplementary training provider to a primary soccer provider for a number of young female and male players. This evolution began with the inception of TSS FC in 2011. At the time of publishing this document, approximately 150 youth players look to TSS for their primary soccer instruction, ranging from 2-3 training sessions a week, plus a game outlet. That responsibility has forced TSS to fully examine the quality of instruction and development approach that underlies the organization. The Blueprint for Development is essentially a culmination of that self examination over a number of years. As this review process is ongoing at TSS, the Blueprint for Development will be an organic document that evolves as the organization evolves. We encourage you to have a read in order to better understand the development approach taken at TSS.
