3C: Total Footballer Model

To be a total footballer requires cognitioncompetence and character. We have developed a detailed rubric that defines the complete footballer. The Total Footballer 3C Model covers 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 5 Elements 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.

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.
