PURE PRofessional Development
Implement a Total Football Program
Embrace a vision from the source of innovation
TOVO is based on Total Football, played and taught by Johan Cruyff throughout his brilliant career. A style where eleven players contribute systematically to both offense and defense, players utilizing divergent and convergent thinking to create and execute solutions. This can only take place when the brain recognizes patterns and possibilities at game-pace. TOVO Training methodology promotes a logical progression of exercises that directly construct the conditions under which players will need to perform. This learner-based program uses pattern recognition and geometric forms to simplify the complexity of the game and teach the secrets to greater vision, precision, and pace.
Make Barcelona Your Home Away From Home
Welcome to a footballer’s paradise
TOVO Academy Barcelona welcomes youth players and coaches to Spain to experience innovative talent development. Our training programs are a rare opportunity to train, learn and excel in a way that very few student-athletes ever experience in their lifetime. Our focus is football, but our goal is growth. The Club Alliance is our way to bring our TOVO training method to your club. It is a comprehensive and detailed program that allows your players to progress beyond what traditional training affords.
TRAIN your Coaches
Total Professional Development
TOVO coaches are proactive educators capable of inspiring success in others. They seek something more, and we give them more. Coaches who are learning the craft of running an engaging session will need guidance and support. A veteran coach is often eager to continue learning about the latest in innovative training. In either case, the education and development of coaches will be of paramount importance to your club. Attracting and retaining positive and competent coaches becomes easier when we offer them a program to inspire and incentivize them.
Develop Intelligent Footballers
The best players are the most intelligent players
To play the game intelligently and creatively, players need to maximize their cognitive skills. TOVO Footballers dominate the ball. They are explosive. They know where to be and when. They behave. They prepare. They are ambitious and resilient. In the end, the club maximizes the talent of each and every player.
Deliver Effective Training
Training tailored for you
Our research-based program develops intelligent players. We have created a Geo-Cognitive Model that allows footballers to play with remarkable vision, precision and pace. Each exercise within our training portfolio is designed to help a player find solutions to the challenges the opponents present. Our players love the dynamic, engaging and competitive nature of our training sessions. As coaches, we know that while the players are having fun they are unconsciously training the brain and body to work in harmony.
Support Your Director of Coaching
Make talent development your highest priority
A director of coaching or technical director needs support. Too often the duties at hand take them away from the highest priority of building a curriculum and successfully implementing it throughout the organization. We will provide the DOC the very support he or she needs by providing the training program and an efficient manner to train coaches to implement the methodology.
Amaze Your Parents
When parents see progress they see professionalism
Parents are vital to the success of any club and the most important role model in a player’s life. More than anything, parents want a plan that develops their child’s potential fully. We educate parents on the methodology and ensure that they understand both the short-term and long-term benefits for their children.
Provide Clarity to the Board of Directors
A cohesive plan adds value to all involved
Many board members work within industry outside of football. They are used to seeing plans developed, implemented and assessed. When they realize that the club is well-organized and follows a proven program, they will cherish the role they will play to support its implementation.
