Our training program is founded upon sound pedagogical principles. When we respect the learning process, we tap into a source of true empowerment. Human beings love formulas for success and we provide one. Every detail of development is covered in a clear and coherent fashion

3C: Total Footballer Model

To be a total footballer requires cognitioncompetence and character. We have developed a detailed rubric that defines the complete footballer a young player must become if he is to maximize his potential. With the Total Footballer 3C Model in place, we begin to analyze and train every aspect of performance. An intelligent player capable of executing his options in real time under real pressure is a player that will be prepared to compete at a higher level.

PP: Position Play & Principles of Play

Players who understand the intricacies of position play are elite players. Our methodology empowers players to understand the value of proper and effective positioning to control spatial relationships. While this may seem esoteric, it is not. Even our youngest players may effectively begin to acquire this understanding and put it into practice.  We break position play into 5 critical components that enable players to advance their development remarkably.

By introducing TOVO’s 14 Principles of Play, we help young players master concepts that they will apply throughout their entire football development. Footballers will practice toward consistent execution of these principles and in doing so play capably and confidently.

SP: System of Play

The game of football is open to many interpretations and therein lays the beauty of this international sport. At TOVO we believe in attacking, dynamic, possession-based football. Our methodology is designed to play the style of football that has led remarkable teams to tremendous success. Our origins rest in Total Football and for that reason our entire training method develops players capable of playing the game skillfully and intelligently. Every training detail leads us to play a system of play we find to be spectacular. Ultimately, players of great cognition, competence and character will be players who any coach in any part of the world will value.
