Providing the best pathway for each player by improving soccer opportunities for every player at every level of interest and ability.
Our mission at Total Futbol Club is to provide a positive, competitive youth soccer experience for player, parent, and coach. We believe a positive team sport experience will promote a youth’s self-confidence and self-esteem beyond the soccer field. We emphasize individual skill development, teamwork, game concepts and sportsmanship. Our mission is to positively impact the development of youth in the Princes Georges County community by providing soccer and life-enrichment opportunities to young players of all ages and playing abilities while creating a lifelong passion for the sport of soccer. In return, our hope is to have mentor players as they become adults to be strong leaders and coaches that can eventually impact their community with the same values that were provided by Total Futbol Club.
- A positive attitude creates a positive environment.
- Never give up!
- Committed to developing the player and the individual.
- Good leaders will inspire themselves. Great leaders will inspire others.
- The team is greater than the individual.
- The club is greater than the team.
- The community is greater than the club.
Our goal at Total Futbol Club is to maximize each player’s potential by working to enhance all components of their game. At Total Futbol Club we have a program which is unique in the United States. The most obvious difference is our trademark style of play….technique and ball possession, versus the common “kick and run” soccer; which may produce more “wins” in a player’s younger years, but does little to prepare him/her for play at top competitive levels. While we emphasize the importance of winning soccer games, from a coaching stand point, long term growth of the player comes first with TFC. It is a difficult, tedious approach, filled with highs and lows, but the results are worthwhile.
Our belief is that a player’s greatest area of opportunity is technique. By mastering skill and technique, we will see more confident players who will gain more opportunities on the field. Once the technical skill is mastered, game tactics are introduced to build the complete player. Further, prioritizing creativity in our players allows them to make decisions in the game under high pressure and execute them effectively. To do this, they must master the technique, which then correlates tactical decisions at a high pace consistently. Therefore, Our training sessions are focused on dynamic and creative ways to solve pressure in tight spaces to meet the demands of the game.
In player’s developmental years, we emphasize different formations and tactics to prepare them for different systems of play that will be needed at the more competitive level. This will allow them to smoothly transition, and adapt an understanding game management and team roles and responsibilities.
Further, we spend significant time integrating life experiences to help mold, nurture, and shape players to see the bigger picture. We want them to understand that there is more to life than the game, and that making the right choices are an integral part in their overall decisions. The choices that they make, specifically outside of the game, will go a long way if their actions. These qualities are important for their future growth, both on and off the field, and will help bring awareness when they tackle challenges in school, life, soccer, relationships, and work. We are a safe place for players to excel and build confidence so that they can grow a strong soccer skill set and have an overall positive mindset that will help prepare them for college and life.
