Our Player Development Philosophy
Continuous Development of Each Individual Player
We group players according to age and ability, making their experience always challenging and enjoyable. Based on staff assessment and recommendation, players may be moved to higher-level groups as they progress.
Our Youth Academy instruction is designed to help players achieve their maximum potential through progressive exercises that are individually challenging, as well as age and ability appropriate.
Game-like Technical and Tactical Training Environment
The unique Dutch development program goes far beyond the static regimented training environment employed by most youth soccer development programs. Technical and tactical instructions are conducted through the application of small-sided games so that players experience a training environment that replicates real game scenarios.
Under the watchful eye of our licensed, professional coaching staff, players will learn WHAT to do, HOW to do it, and WHEN to do it – at the technical speed required in the modern game.
