Our Programs

Since our establishment in July 2007, Total Football has developed a number of successful programs designed to introduce high-level European-style football training techniques to players and coaches in Japan.

Nike Elite Training

With the support of Nike Japan, we have coached over 45,000 players from junior high schools, high schools, and club teams. With our Elite Training program, our coaches visit local football grounds and provide free 2-hour coaching sessions based on a custom-designed grassroots program. This covers all levels from beginner to advanced, and is tailored to match almost any number of players.

Pocari Sweat Sports Clinic

In collaboration with Otsuka Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., Total Football has developed a female-focused year-around coaching programme. Our coaches visit women’s teams (age 15 and above) across Kanto and Kansai providing elite-level football clinics, with integrated training focused on the importance of hydration and nutrition for the players’ peak performance.

Total Football School Philippines

Total Football has partnered with The Philippines National Football team the Azkals and SM Mall of Asia – the largest Mall in the Philippines – to run a year-round elite football academy to support a new generation of football players. The program, led by Total Football Head Coach Leigh Manson, also offers scholarships to qualifying players, and is set to become the largest grassroots football program in the Philippines.

TFA Elite Soccer Academy

The premier soccer school program for American military personnel and their dependents stationed on Yokota airbase. Designed for youths and young adults aged 5 – 18 years old, the TFA Elite Soccer Academy provides many opportunities to soccer players, inspiring them to reach their fullest potential by placing them in a game-related training environment, which is challenging, yet still an enjoyable and positive experience. The program is now being rolled out to other bases in the region.

Asia-wide Programs

Total Football coaches are often invited overseas to coach players from various backgrounds. Since 2012, head coach Leigh Manson and the goalkeeper coach Jorge Kuriyama have run several intensive training programs for the Philippines FA, coaching Global FC players (including Philippines national players). Total Football has also launched a new program in China providing opportunities for players in Beijing and beyond to take party in high-level US university try-outs.
