Dear TSA Parents:
Over the summer, we have built a relationship with an exciting new soccer organization, I-Soccer, that was founded by a former Tucson soccer player, Scott Leber. With our approval, I-Soccer has administered training sessions to select TSA teams during regularly scheduled practices. You may have seen or heard about the I-Soccer program that some of your sons or daughters participated in to measure their individual soccer skills.
I-Soccer is currently seeking youth players with strong technical skills relative to their age and gender to be featured in web-based soccer training videos it will be producing this fall and winter. As parents, we know you may have concerns about your child’s participation and that is why we want to assure you that I-Soccer is a credible organization, and Scott is a local Tucsonan we know and trust. We are fully supportive of I-Soccer’s work and believe that our relationship creates a unique opportunity for TSA players. We hope you will join us in supporting I-Soccer and Scott by encouraging your son or daughter to attend tryouts.
Please see Scott’s email below for further details.
Dave Cosgrove, Director of Player Development
Jeff Rogers, Director of Coaching
Dear TSA Parents:
First, I want to thank you for taking the time to read the following email. I am very fortunate to have had such a great experience as a youth soccer player in Tucson and I am excited about the opportunity to give back to other local players.
I-Soccer is a web-based soccer program whose mission is to motivate, educate and inspire individual players. As a trainer and coach, I saw a need for youth players to have a fun and competitive environment that would encourage them to practice on their own and improve their technical skills. An important component of the I-Soccer website will be soccer videos featuring youth players demonstrating various skills. How better to teach than by example? If you believe your son or daughter possesses strong technical skills and would be interested in being featured in one or several of these videos, please encourage them to attend tryouts.
