DSA Sunday Skills Academy
We will once again offer our DSA Academy. This program is offered in addition to the House weekly practice and Saturday game. The goal of this program is to allow our more dedicated DSA players to improve their skills through intense coaching sessions. The Academy will train the more committed boys and girls separately, exposing them to a higher level of play and instruction, allowing them to further develop their soccer acumen. This program is designed to be rigorous and intense, and will seek to get the best out of all participants. Academy participants will be separated by gender, and further grouped into smaller groups based on ability, to allow for a more focused and individualized training session. Evaluations will take place during the first session for group formation; however, the evaluations will be fluid, allowing for player movement over the course of the Academy.
Sessions will be held on Sunday mornings for 7 weeks, and will consist of 1 intense practice session per week. Playing on DSA House program teams caters well to the development of our players and allows kids to play with their friends. Participation in a challenging in-town program such as the DSA Academy will help advance the development of our most dedicated players to a level that will reap rewards down the road when it really counts!
The common denominator of the groups will be commitment and talent.
The goal of DSA Academy is to create a more competitive player development environment for local players who clearly have the passion and work ethic to become the best soccer players they can be.
