Congratulations to the Tennessee SC U18 2016 Boys Showcase team for winning the Division I State Soccer Championship today in Murfreesboro, TN.  Coach Sandy Pollock’s team defeated FC Alliance 98 2-1 in the Finals.  Today’s victory is the first State Championship for the 2016 Boys team.

FC Alliance had won the last three State Championships in this age group.  Tennessee SC u18’s were led by goal scorers Noel Roman and Shak Adams.  “Today was a great team effort and the first state cup for this team” said Coach Pollock.  “I am very proud of all of them."

Due to the rescheduling of the State Tournament the Tennessee SC College Recruiting Education Night has been canceled.  We will, however, be sending out college recruiting information in the near future and creating seminars around our College ID Camps.

November Birth Year Training - Older Boys

11/05/2015, 11:30am CST

Word has just come down from US Soccer by way of the Tennessee State Soccer Association that there has been an adjustment to the birth year designation.  The below PDF of the Birth Year Matrix shows how the birth years will fall.  In some instances players will actually skip a year by the chart.  Remember that everyone in that age group will be skipping with them.  With this new information the 2002’s will now be included in our older boys birth year training in November.  However, for the 2002's this is optional.  We are aware that middle school soccer is in progress.  There will also be an option for the 2002's to train with their birth year group in the Spring.
Tennessee Soccer Club will be holding birth year training sessions in November for the older boys age groups.  The younger boys and all of the girls will be doing so in the Spring.  
November birth year training age groups:
  • 2002, 2001, 2000, 1999, 1998.
Tuesday November 10— 6pm-8pm Downs west fields 22,23,24 and25
Thursday November 12–6pm-8pm Downs west fields 22,23,24 and 25
Tuesday November 17–6pm-8pm Downs west fields 22,23,24 and 25
Tuesday November 24–6pm-8pm Downs west fields 22,23,24 and 25.
These training sessions hold value for players and coaches to gain familiarity with the birth year age grouping as dictated by US Soccer.

The Tennessee Soccer Club is excited to present Earle Davidson as our Boys Director of Coaching for the U12-U14 age group. Coach Davidson will oversee the daily activities of this crucial age range. He will continue as the Boys College Search Coordinator as well as overseeing the United Soccer Leagues component, including coaching the Super-20 Boys. Davidson will be replacing Alan O’Connor who will begin a new chapter in his professional career this month. “Coach O’Connor did a wonderful job for the club as Director of Coaching for the U12-U14 boys; and we all are very excited that Alan will remain on staff as a team coach and wish him the very best as he transitions in his full-time professional career,” said Executive Director Stuart Brown. 

Coach Davidson brings an extensive amount of experience at the developmental as well as the competitive levels, having coached collegiately for 23 seasons, 17 of those as a head coach at the NCAA Division I level on the men's side. He is a graduate of Vanderbilt University, where he was a four year starter and Captain in his senior year. Additionally, Coach Davidson has been involved locally in the competitive club system for 20+ years. 

"I'm looking forward to the challenge of having an integral role in the developmental side of soccer here in middle Tennessee,” said Earle Davidson. “The Tennessee Soccer Club has consistently produced quality teams and players, so this is a thrilling opportunity. This middle age group is crucial to the long-term development and enjoyment of the game. The application of vision and decision-making in combination with technical and tactical concepts are established here."

Brown added, “I’m excitement for the future of the U12-U14 age group with the leadership of Coach Davidson as the Director of Coaching. Coach Davidson is a seasoned professional who understands all facets of developing young players into outstanding high school and collegiate players. I look forward to seeing Coach Davidson's contributions on the field immediately.”

Tennessee Soccer Club is excited to announce its new partnership with Unequal Technology.  The creation of the Unequal Halo has provided high tech security for the competitive athlete.  This new relationship allows our membership to purchase top quality protective headgear at a reduced cost.  

Head injuries can occur in our sport, and harmful impact energy caused by any kind of collision prompts foams to bottom out and stop protecting. UNEQUAL confuses that energy and absorbs, disperses and dissipates much of it away from the head. The Unequal Halo is a patented, military grade composite made of TriDur® and Accelleron® with coated high tensile strength aramid fibers that deal with trauma energy at a level virtually unmatched by other soccer head protection.

Check out Unequal here:

“We are very aware of the recent research concerning concussions and possible head injuries.  We, at Tennessee Soccer Club, want to provide our membership not only the literature regarding this new technology, but also the opportunity to purchase product.  Our player’s health has been and will always be a primary focus of our staff.  We support Unequal Technology and the use of the Halo for any and all of our players that have interest in the new technology.” - Stuart Brown, Tennessee SC.
