Our players are carefully scouted and selected to join our elite group of players who aspire to play top level football in either the USA or Europe. While finding players that simply play good football is essentially what is important when being scouting, the key qualities that we look for include football skills, tactical awareness (football IQ), physique and temperament. When scouting players, these are not the only aspects we value. The key characteristic for those hoping to join TFA is commitment. The Football Academy is only for the committed..
