DTS Soccer Clinics ­- Youth Soccer Clinics

Youth Soccer Clinics Overview

Aviator Sports and Events Centers Youth Soccer Clinics are run by Dutch Total Soccer (DTS), a training organization that consists of professional trainers from the Netherlands. All DTS trainers are licensed by the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) and have a sports teacher background (Dutch DIOS/ALO education), so they are all true teachers of the game.

DTS training is based on the Dutch philosophy of coaching, which is founded on the premise that the player’s ball control and tactical development will receive top priority in training. Players will be constantly challenged to achieve individual and team goals.

Under the watchful eye of our Dutch trained coaching staff, players will begin to know what to do, when to do it, and how to do it at the technical and tactical speed that is required in the modern game. Classes are available for ages 18 months – 14 years old. We now offer an Adult class as well!

The Fall 2018 Youth Soccer Clinics Session will begin on the below dates and all classes are 8 weeks long

Saturdays September 8th
Sundays September 9th
Mondays September 10th
Tuesdays September 11th
Thursdays September 13th

At our state of the art indoor facility play time ever ends!!

During this class the Toddlers will learn how to play in a group setting and work on social development through small games and activities. This class is a perfect way for children to learn basic athletic skills such as coordination, balance, catching, throwing and much more.

When we ask a youth soccer player who their favorite soccer star most of them will answer Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo. It’s not a coincidence most people really like these players. Messi and Ronaldo are the 2 players with the best foot skills in the world. Both of them are always in control of the ball and have the ability to pass defenders using their skills (moves). The Fast Footwork classes are based on being in control of the ball and use skills (moves) to pass the defender. The basic skills of the best players in the world are the foundation of the Fast Footwork classes. The goal of learning these skills is to be comfortable with the ball and dominate the defender in a 1 versus 1 situation.

What is taught in this Class

In the Fast Footwork class we are focusing on using the moves without too much pressure. The pressure is the ball, the move and changing the direction. We start with learning different moves to change into different directions. We will teach the players moves to make a turn and go back, to go to the side and to pass a defender in a forward direction.

Moves to make a turn and go back, to go to the side and to pass a defender in a forward direction are also in this class. The key is to become more confident with the ball and learn how to dominate the defender in 1 versus 1 situations.

All Fast Footwork classes are focused on individual development.

Who should take this Class

In the Dutch philosophy every attack starts with the goalkeeper or at least a defender. We think building up from the back is better for the development of the players and much more fun for them. To be able to build up every players need to be comfortable with the ball. This is one of the things players will learn during the Fast Footwork Classes: Being comfortable with the ball. Every player on the field should be able to use a move to keep possession of the ball. In our philosophy every player should have the skills we teach in the Fast Footwork classes.

The DTS Skills and Scrimmages class will focus on the training of player’s fundamental skills. Significant work will also be done on small sided games and scrimmages.  Players will work on the technical elements of the game such as their first touch, dribbling, individual skills and moves, passing and shooting.

Players will be separated into smaller groups during technical training. By working in small groups this brings the individual into focus, increases the intensity of training, and enables more individual feedback for each player.

Half of each class will focus on scrimmages and game situations in addition to 4v4 and 3v3 drills. During the scrimmages the coaches will break down play to help players work and better understand what was instructed during their class session.

The DTS Skills & Drills classes are based on a combination of foundational skills every soccer all-round players should work on. The basic skills of the best players in the world are the foundation of our Skills & Drills classes. The goal of learning these skills is to overall improve your basic skill level on every asset of the game.

What is taught in this Class:

All DTS Skills & Drills classes are focused on individual development. Starting the Skills & Drills class sessions we mainly focus on full ball control with a combination of dribbling and moves to change into different directions. The class sessions will progress shifting the focus to passing and finishing.

As players are progressing throughout the classes our DTS trainers will teach the players various skills and drills under pressure to constantly challenge the players. Each added move will be more difficult than the previous moves. Passing and finishing will now be performed under full pressure. The goal of the Skills & Drills class is to become more confident with the ball and become an all-round player. We will give all players, regardless of position on the field, the tools to master any situation under pressure and to be confident in situations in front of the goal.

Who should do this Class:

In the Dutch philosophy, every attack starts with the goalkeeper or at least a defender. We think building up from the back is better for the development of the players and much more fun for them. To be able to build up, every players need to be comfortable with the ball. This is one of the things players will learn during the Skills & Drills classes: Being comfortable with the ball. Every player on the field should be able to use a move to keep possession of the ball.

As a general outline we advise the following ages and playing experience for the Skills & Drills classes:

Skills & Drills – Ages 9 to 12 or 1 to 3 years of Travel/Classes experience

Because the class focuses on individual development a difference in age does not affect the learning experience in our classes.

Every once in a while there is a player who seems to be unstoppable for every other team. With his speed and total control over the ball Lionel Messi is that kind of player. He is the example that shows that control and speed with the ball can be a great value. Being capable to accelerate and turn away from opponents in any position can lead to a lot of scoring opportunities. Each player can be more dangerous if they have the confidence to control the ball and beat a defender in a 1vs1 situation. The goal is to perfect a dribble with both feet and add that with more speed in the game.

What is taught in this class:

In this high level class every drill demands a full control over the ball. Players will be taught to dribble with both feet and doing that in a speed as high as possible. They will also be taught to recognize open space to move and dribble in. Being able to make quick turns and accelerate in those open spaces will lead to creating more opportunities in a soccer game.

The instructors will teach the players how and when to turn away from opponents, accelerating past opponents and finishing from out of a speed dribble and many more. All of this is being practiced on the highest speed possible with full pressure.

Who should take this class:

A specific class for players who successfully passed through the Fast footwork classes and are ready to take their skills to a higher level.  The class will develop a player’s ability to use both feet in a dribble and choose the right moment to dribble and accelerate.  This is an advanced class!
