Our Story

Kristin Russell and Elliot Payne realized that it's time for a change!

Soccer continuously evolves and there are certain areas of the game that field players and goalkeepers are expected to understand and excel in. These areas of the game weren’t nearly as important a few years ago but yet, players are still being run through outdated drills.

Since the game is evolving the training needs to evolve as well. We recognize the need to constantly stay on the cutting edge when it comes to soccer training. It’s time to train in an environment that focuses in the areas that need focusing.

We want to bring modernized coaching to the Tampa Bay Area. And So, Tampa Soccer Clinics was born.

"We want to revolutionize the training scene here in Tampa Bay, Florida."

KRS Goalkeeping and TSC Academy have partnered up to offer youth soccer players of the Tampa Bay Area professional soccer training.


Tampa Soccer Clinics provide intense technical soccer training specialized for those players that are ready to take their game to the next level! Players will engage in a competitive training environment, with high level coaching provided by two of the top soccer training academies in Florida.


All clinics are designed and structured to highlight specific components of the game from both sides of the ball. Pairing goalkeepers and field players together within the same training environment enables each soccer player to receive the amount of challenging repetitions needed to become more comfortable and effective in crucial game situations.


Tampa Soccer Clinics' coaches also offer 1on1, small group, and team training, utilizing the same philosophies and coaching styles that we implement during our clinics.

With our modernized approach to soccer training, players will have the ability, knowledge and experience necessary to excel in games.
