Why Choose DSA Overnight Camp?
DSA camps provide an all-encompassing soccer training program. We will expose players to the exciting international soccer culture with our world class certified instructors. DSA training techniques are cutting edge and proven to impact your game.
- Technical: Dribbling/ball mastery, passing, receiving, shooting.
- Position-specific: Movement off the ball, closing down opponents,
- Tactical: Understand the dynamics of play through numbers. 1v1, 2v2 and up to 11v11 drills including attacking, defending and ball movement.
- Competition: Speed of play, build ups, changing point of attack, team shape, applying pressure and pressing.
Our goalie program is run by professional instructor, Ton Snip, of the Netherlands. DSA believes that the best development for goalies is to combine technical training and game situation training and therefore we run our goalie camp simultaneous with our field players. DSA keepers will train with the goalie instructor in the morning and will receive game situation training in the afternoons during our live 11v11 league matches. Goalies will have additional playing experience during our small sided world cup matches in the evening.

DSA Advanced Camp
High school players may sign up for additional training during our residential camps at no extra cost. Students signed up for our advanced camp will learn how to train their bodies for maximum soccer performance and decrease the potential for injuries during the season. Through soccer specific conditioning and strength training exercises, players will improve their speed, agility, and soccer endurance. Students in our advanced camp will also have the opportunity to play in a match with our coaches, many of whom still play professionally in Europe, to experience soccer at a different level.
Students signed up for our advanced camp should come to camp physically fit and ready for a challenge. This program is excellent for high school players who are serious about improving and playing soccer in college. It will prepare players for the physical and mental demands of the collegiate game and ease the transition.
