We all like to do what we do well.....not many of us...continue something we consistently fail at...

So providing players with the tools to achieve success is mission #1 at TSi.

Best value: 
The fees are low...
yet all of our players receive the highest level USSF "A" licensed coaching !

The TSi founder grew up in a modest family.. that dealt with financial hardship...

So it's a core commitment to keep the programs as affordable as is financially feasible to continue operating the TSI Campus facility, club, camps, and programs at TSi.

...we make every effort to foster a positive youth experience"
