ABOUT US

TFA Willamette is a 501(c)(3) non-profit youth soccer organization. Our membership includes youth from Albany, Oregon and surrounding communities in Linn, Benton, Marion, and Lane counties. Our members come from all socio-economic backgrounds, and we embrace high levels of diversity within our club community.



The TFA Willamette Difference

TFA Willamette is the only full service youth soccer club in Albany, Oregon and the greater Willamette Valley that utilizes an integrated club model which requires the use of standardized curriculums, coaching methodologies, and a style of play that emphasizes purposeful possession called, "total futbol." This creates a clear path and progression for all of our players from 5 years old through to our high school-aged and senior-level teams.

These curriculum's and methodologies also happen to be time-tested and proven at La Masia, FC Barcelona's world renowned youth soccer academy in Spain, and set the standard for both child development and player development.



Mission Statement

Total Futbol Academy Willamette was established to promote and enhance the soccer culture in Linn, Benton, and Marion counties with the objective of providing a professionally structured and disciplined program in order to positively influence the lives of our student athletes. Through a rigid soccer curriculum, built upon the world renowned "total futbol" philosophy, we strive to use soccer as a tool to deliver non-soccer specific skills such as communication, teamwork, time management, responsibility, discipline and respect for all players, parents and the community.

Local History

Total Futbol Academy Willamette was created in 2014 when Albany Futbol Club (Albany, OR) took the bold step of becoming a Namesake Partner in the Total Futbol Academy Collaboration Program (Los Angeles, CA).  The TFA Affiliation Program was the perfect fit for our club as we too endeavored to implement the "total futbol" philosophy and player development system.  Joining an already established and internationally recognized organization will help us to achieve our vision of becoming the premier full service soccer club in our local community of Albany, OR, and our larger communities of Linn and Benton counties and the greater Willamette Valley.

Vision Statement

To become the premier, full service (U5-U23) soccer club in the Central Willamette Valley region serving Linn, Benton, and Marion Counties.


Total Futbol Academy's Foundation

Total Futbol Academy's Non-Profit 501c(3) Foundation was founded in 1999 in order to serve three principle objectives:

First, to represent and support one of the greatest professional soccer clubs of the world, FC Barcelona, as one of their official FCB "Supporters Clubs" awarded in 2001. (Official FCB Penya #1437)

Second, to fully support the activities of the Total Futbol Academy Youth Soccer program, via the "Kids Off The Streets" campaign, as well as to provide a professionally structured and disciplined youth soccer academy "vehicle" that ultimately guides them to achieve their ultimate goal of attending college.  

And third, to provide the ability for other Youth Soccer Clubs and Coaches to gain access to our acquired library of "total futbol" related curriculum's, know-how and resources through an AFFILIATION PROGRAM.
