Once youngsters are identified into the foundation our team provide help, advice and financial support to create a great pathway to combating many social health issues as well as healthy exercise through a mentoring process.

The TSFA will work with parents to look at the different backgrounds of its youngsters. Through this process the Foundation will help improve social behaviour. Whilst this process is ongoing the youngsters are further recommended and encouraged by our coaches to join a sports club to help them enjoy their sport, meet new people and help breakdown the social and health barriers that effects young people today.

The TSFA priority is not based on finding champions, however many of the  youngsters who have been identified with having a particular talent by our sports coaches have now gone on to become county champions and national title holders for their age group whilst continuing in further education through the aid and support of the foundation. In addition our sports coaches are growing increasingly confident that many more youngsters are likely to win national titles for their age group in the near future.
