WINTER AND SPRING SCHEDULE INFORMATION

SPRING TRAINING: Spring outdoor training will take place at Schneider Soccer Complex (2706 Schneider Rd, Toledo) and is included with your fees.

Youth players will have 2 mandatory and 2 optional trainings. High School teams will have 2 mandatory and 1 "strongly encouraged" optional training.

Players should attend their team's mandatory trainings unless there is an excused absence (excused absences include illness/injury, important family events, religious events or school functions, not including other sports events/teams). For absences to be excused, players/parents must contact their Head Coach as soon as they have confirmation of missing a mandatory TFA event.

We also strongly recommend and encourage our players to attend the optional trainings; these are varying themed scrimmages that brings TFA practice to game ratio to a healthy 4 to 1. Youngers get to mix and play with older players and our older players are given responsibilities to show their leadership qualities.

  • Speed and Agility will be included within optional training sessions.
  • GK training is also strongly recommended for any goalkeeper who will participate for any minutes during league or tournament games.
  • Youth teams will end training on May 21 and High School teams on May 28.
