Modern Development

TOCA Training is lead by our directing team alongside our training staff. TOCA training allows the trainers to focus on player attributes and support development while using the TOCA machines to provide match realistic scenarios. Our Urban Soccer Science brand is constantly looking to push forward with modern training, this is built on the foundation of utilizing the augmented training spaces. Our focus is on player growth through quality repetition and cognitive awareness training.

TOCA training enhances the number of quality touches with personal trainer guidance to vastly speed up development. By nature, the TOCA machine has no personality, therefore you create the positive environment you desire without external influence. The versatility of the augmented game-like environment allows players to focus on core skill areas in a short amount of time. The machines use audio cues to trigger the player to react/move prior to receiving. The integration of visual cues enhances the environments development benefits.
