Claire's Catalan Adventure

Claire Winter is an accomplished young woman. Having grown up in the Bay Area, Claire traveled south to attend UCLA, one of America's top collegiate programs. She co-captained her team for her senior year, helping them to get to the National Championship game. Her journey to TOVO was a personal pilgrimage and an opportunity to test herself on European soil. She trained hard and fully immersed herself in the rich Catalan culture, which breathes football on a daily basis. Claire is currently on trial for a professional women's team, combining her passion with commitment. 


"I felt fearless and had the confidence to try things I may have not tried before. TOVO trainings allow each player to grow their confidence each day they step out on the field. I am the most confident I have ever been. I also have learned a significant amount about the game and truly feel I am a better player because of it. The TOVO Method has inspired me to look at and play the game in a whole new way,"  comments Claire.

"Claire came to us having recently competed in the national championship match - a high stakes, high pressure environment. We felt that we needed to help her fall in love with the game again by focusing on pure development and by kindling a deeper understanding of the game. She responded brilliantly and we are so proud to be providing her a pathway to professional football here in Europe," shares Todd Beane. 

We wish Claire well on her journey to extraordinary.
