October is National Breast Cancer Awarness Month. As part of this, Tennessee Soccer Club has worked with America Athletics (Club Spirit Wear Provider) to come up with some special deals. Orders on these deals are due by Oct. 7th so "Don't Miss Out". Our Coaching Directors have authorized these Pink shirts to be worn this month instead of the red training shirts.

The Tennessee Soccer Club held its inaugural tournament over the weekend of September 14th - 16th. We had 104 teams participating in 11 Boys Divisions and 10 Girls Divisions from Tennessee, Alabama, Kentucky and Missisippi. Tennesse Soccer Club had 13 Champions (7 Boys and 6 Girls) and 13 Finalist (7 Boys and 6 Girls). We want to thank everyone who helped make this a successful event.
Tennessee Soccer Club invited Wayne Harrison to lead the clubs first Coaching Education Session. Wayne is well known nationally and even around the world for his “Soccer Awareness” books, and methods of coaching. Wayne has developed successful methods of teaching players how to be aware of what is going on around them on the soccer field which in turn increases their speed of play. There were 60+ Tennessee SC coaches in attendance for the 2 day seminar as Wayne did sessions on the field followed by lectures. Tennessee Soccer Club thanks Wayne for leading our Coaching Education and sharing his secrets. There is no doubt it will benefit our players!
