Q: Can our children still play recreational soccer or AYSO?
A: Yes - even though this program is directed by a travel soccer club this does not mean you have to play travel soccer. The TESC Skills Academy will be available to any player within the community (limited Spaces available) who is looking for professional training. Our aim is for players to take the skills they learn from the TESC Skills  Academy and use them in their recreational / AYSO games. For the winter indoor sessions, players should bring a soccer ball and indoor soccer shoes. For the fall and spring sessions, players should bring a soccer ball and outdoor soccer shoes.
