Intensive Training Camp
For 18 – 22 Year Olds



Ambitious Footballers

This is a program designed for passionate footballers. You will train hard, get fit, and maximize your potential on the pitch. In essence, this a intensive training camp for collegiate players. 


College Students

Intelligent Training

You will want to develop yourself fully on and off the field. You will train to become a footballer and you will engage in professional development workshops. 


TOVO Vision

global-minded leaders

Through a dynamic blend of football, academics and cultural immersion, TOVO Academy will inspire and develop the player and the future leader in you so that you can embrace the challenges of an increasingly interconnected world with optimism, creativity and excellence.  



a footballer’s paradise

TOVO is a rare opportunity to train, learn and excel in a way that very few student-athletes ever experience in their lifetime. Our multidisciplinary program is designed to develop creative and competent leaders on and off the field, while encouraging them to enjoy every moment of that process in a footballer’s paradise. Our focus is football, but our goal is growth. 


TOVO Difference

Total Football from the Source

TOVO is based on Total Football, played and taught by Johan Cruyff throughout his brilliant career. In a style where eleven players contribute systematically to both offense and defense, players utilize both 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 you will need to perform. This learner-based program uses pattern recognition and geometric forms to simplify the complexity of the game and teach you the secrets to greater vision, precision and pace.  



Your Passion

Do what you love most

At TOVO we want you to pursue your passion for football with full focus and all of your energy. The best way for us to make that happen is to treat you like a professional. We eat together and train together under the optimal conditions for your growth and development as a player and as a person. In the end, we want to send you onto your next destination prepared for future challenges on the field and far beyond.
