TSC are expanding their popular academy sessions with a new foundation academy venue in Herne Bay.

These sessions will provide structured professional coaching sessions for youth players in the under 7 to under 11 age groups, starting 9th June at Herne Bay High School. We currently have one foundation academy in Thanet which has proved hugely successful over the years. But with the distance between Thanet and Faversham academies being quite far and with some players not being able to train on certain nights we have decided to open another venue in Herne Bay.

The academy is structured so that we have 3 levels at each age group: Foundation, Development and Elite. The foundation academies are the entry level to the academy and can lead to progression into the development and Elite academies. The Herne Bay session can feed players into either the Thanet (Monday) or Faversham (Fridays) Elite/Development sessions.

Our training sessions are built around our TSC DNA which is a training programme designed to deliver a technical programme for youth football players, the programme is designed differently for each age group. The younger players will always work in smaller numbers with a large emphasis on having a high ball contact time, as players become older there is a shift from technical work into tactical and strength & conditioning work to keep them developing from aged 6 to adulthood. Our DNA is structured around helping players develop their 1v1 attacking, passing ability, creativity, ability to use both feet, 1v1 defending, defending as a team and also transition.

Our structure of having 3 levels to the academy means we can fit players into a level we believe will benefit their development the most. Detailed information on our development pyramid can be seen by clicking on the picture below:


The session details are:

Thursday nights: 5pm – 6pm – Herne Bay High School, Bullockstone Road, Herne Bay, Kent, CT6 7NS – Starting June 9th

Academy kit is available to all of our Foundation academy players, we are also looking to add in a games programme should our numbers grow to a level that we can run teams at each age group.
