Welcome to TOVO Institute.
We are delighted to work with you to build a remarkable program for the children in your charge. The work, as it should be, will be carried out by you and your colleagues at Bend FC Timbers. Hopefully from Barcelona we may be able to add value to your Professional Development Program. If we can support you as you combine your passion with a sense of purpose we are on the right path. Ultimately, we all want the players to benefit from a coherent, consistent and clear club program.

This material presented online is designed to share with you a process we have found amazingly fruitful in Barcelona and beyond. TOVO Training was inspired by a legend, Johan Cruyff, and built by an educator, Todd Beane. It is a methodology founded on sound pedagogical principles and talent development research. In the end, we know why this methodology works. But no methodology is effective if not delivered by inspired and capable coaches. We will share our ideals with you, but ultimately, you will construct a methodology customized to inspire your players.
If we are to nurture our player’s capacity to play this game well, we need to develop players of great cognition, competence, and character. As we proceed, we will examine the limitations of traditional training and introduce a new paradigm for talent development.
By exploring the material presented here, we hope that you are inspired to question assumptions. We also hope that you may wrestle with alternative ideas as to how we may approach holistic talent development with an emphasis on training intelligence.
