tsx: talento

TSX: Talento Program was designed to bring our international experiences and relationships to those players possessing the ability and passion to explore the possibilities that exist for them in the world of soccer.

TSX: Talento is designed to provide players with an opportunity to be placed within the actual training sessions of top European clubs for an early look. That early look incorporates the European youth academy coaches running the sessions with their youth academy players as well as the American player getting a true professional experience that cannot be replicated here in the States.  This is a unique format which is conducted in a cultural soccer environment. The TSX:Talento Program is structured to place hungry, gifted players in training environments of the top professional clubs youth systems throughout Europe.
