The TVSA Santos Futebol Club is entering its 9th year as a soccer instructional club. The mission of Santos F.C. is to provide each player with the opportunity to build positive self-esteem and to develop his/her technical and tactical abilities to the highest level of his/her potential within an atmosphere of positive reinforcement and fun.
Santos trainer Seymour with soccer legend Pele. Seymour coached alongside the King of Soccer at the Soccer Camp of America.
Santos trademark is its training program based on a Brazilian playing philosophy (Brazil has been ranked the NO. 1 team in the world for the past five World Cup tournament championships). We believe in the formula: Skill = Fun. Skill development has four basic components: technical (ability to control, pass, shoot and head), tactical (ability to make decisions on and off the ball), psychological (mental fortitude to withstand the rigors of select competition), and physical fitness (ability to maneuver at speed over the duration of a game).
The Santos program is directed by Maziya and Seymour. They have shown the ability to develop players otherwise overlooked by other clubs for varying reasons, mainly for not being fast enough. However, currently our teams are competing on par with the so-called top teams in the state and many of those once overlooked players have been and continue to be recruited by other clubs. Technically and tactically we have produced some of the best players in Central Ohio.
Each team has a parent administrator who will actively participate in Board meetings and the day to day and future activities of the organization. Each team will be coached by a qualified instructor responsible for all training sessions and team games. The only guarantee we have is that your child will become a better player at the end of the season.
