Frequently Asked Questions

What is the coach to player ratio?


Can our children still play recreational soccer or AYSO?

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 School will be available to any player within the community (limited spaces available) who is looking for professional training.  Our aim it for to take the skills they learn from the TESC Skills School and use them in their recreational environments.  For the fall and spring outdoor sessions, players should bring a soccer ball and wear outdoor soccer shoes.  For the winter indoor sessions, players should bring a soccer ball and wear indoor soccer shoes.

What days is the Skills School offered?

The TESC Skills School typically goes on Friday’s after school during the Fall, Winter and Spring seasons.  We have additional classes for Pre K – K midweek (Tuesday or Thursday) in the late morning or early afternoon.  Saturday Sessions are offered for too!
