Below are details of the club fees for the 2022-2023 seasons as well as an explanation of each program.
Youth Development Program – birth years 2015-2014 (U8 & U9):
TFA’s main focus of our youth program is to create an atmosphere and an environment in practice and competition where players are challenged to be creative and solve problems. The main focus is on individual player development rather than team development or tactical priorities at these young ages. The development of technically superior soccer players is at the forefront of our player development curriculum.
Club Program – birth years 2013-2004 (U10 – U19):
TFA’s second tier teams compete at local and state levels. These teams receive coaching/training from qualified staff and will provide an opportunity for players to play competitive soccer while juggling other priorities. Players are expected to participate in two training sessions per week in the spring/fall. Participation on one of these teams will also provide (recommended) opportunities for additional winter and summer training. Players who have the desire to move to the next level of competition will be given the opportunity to work on improving their individual technical and tactical performance.
Premium Program – birth years 2013-2004 (U10 – U19):
TFA’s top competitive teams are composed of advanced players participating at the highest levels of competition: Buckeye Premier League (BPYSL), The Premier League (TPL), Ohio South State League (OSSL), Great Lakes Conference (GLC), The National League (NL), and Upper divisions of the Greater Cincinnati Soccer League (GCSL).
Placement of teams within the various leagues and divisions is determined by the performance of the teams as indicated by league standings and other criteria.
Players must be committed to year-round soccer training. Players will be expected to participate in two to three training sessions per week in the spring/fall as well as additional technical training sessions as deemed necessary by the head coach. The number of practices and the requirement for attendance at practices and games will necessitate a very high degree of dedication on the part of all team players and their parents.

** The U15 age group is unique in that some of these players are in 8th grade and some are in high school. The 8th grade students will play with TFA in the fall, whereas, the high school students can play with their high school team in the fall. For the 8th grade players (or possibly high school players) that will be playing with TFA in the fall, this is an additional season on top of the ‘normal’ high school select season. There is an additional fee associated with this fall season. The yearly fee for these players in the Demosphere registration system will combine the fall fee of $465 along with the regular high school select fee.
