Most players and their families are very excited about the opportunity with the TFC Youth Academy. Their state of the art facilities will support them in further enhancing their potential and their continued growth in soccer. VSC has one of the highest amount of recruited players at TFC if not the highest, compared to any other not-for-profit community clubs.
Among the players listed, we also had at least another 8 players that participated in the TFC Youth Academy trials not included in the list above. Every year, this cycle repeats itself, another example of VSC's commitment to player development and our high performance development program!
Vaughan soccer club has a reputation of regularly producing division 1 caliber players, under the guidance of Carmine Isacco [VSC's Technical Director]. Supported by a sound technical team, the commitment to player development truly shines North of Toronto. Adapting to the OSA's long-term developmental philosophy [LTPD], has had Vaughan Soccer Club placing a strong emphasis in identifying, and grooming, high skilled players from a young age.
We are very happy for all these players and wish them the best in their development as soccer players. Special thanks to the team coaches, technical trainers, and all the volunteers who have contributed to our players successes.
All the best from all of here at Vaughan Soccer!
