Player Development Model Overview
Creating Future Stars in the Game of Soccer and in Life.
We take our role in player development seriously.  Our curriculum is designed to improve the development of players concentrating on creating more organized, age-appropriate training sessions, developing coaching practices and creating an environment that is fun for the players. 
Our curriculum is based on the 7v7 and 9v9 formats which is endorsed by US Soccer and is a more natual learning progression into 11v11.  TSC Hurricane integrated these formats as well as several other development initiatives into our Juniors and Player Development programming.  As affiliates of TSCH, MTsc and BASC also support these player development methods and philosophies.  TSC Hurricane also highly endorses Futsal as another important part of developing technical skills.
The foundation is built starting with our Juniors Program. Our club cooperatively guides our young players through four stages that will fully prepare them for the next levels:
1. Learning To Train (100% development focus) U6
2. Learning Style Of Play (100% development focus) U7-8
3. Refining Style Of Play (95% development focus, 5% winning focus) U9-10
4. Training To Compete (85% development focus, 15% winning focus) U11-12

Vertical Development Philosophy

TSC Hurricane also follows a unique Vertical Development Philosophy which means coaches are matched to the ages where they provide the most value while also providing more development opportunities for the coaches.  Teams and players are matched with new coaches every few years which provides different challenges for the players as they get exposed to different techniques and coaching styles while progressing through the system.

We have also outlined the expectations or End Product measurements that we would expect to see at each stage of a player’s development.  (See left menu.)
