Our next session of DTP begins April 11th!

Need more soccer? Don't miss the opportunity for your child to train with our Director of Coaching, Dutch Vigar. SIU DTP (Developmental Training Program) is offered for recreational players in the 7U/8U age group (2013/2014 birth years) who express a desire to play soccer at a higher level (become a travel player).   

Spring sessions will be on Apr 11, 18, 25, and May 2, 16, and 23, 4-5pm at Binford Park in New Albany.  The fee is $40 for all six sessions, in addition to Rec fees.   Click here to register.

DTP will provide your child the opportunity for enriched and additional training to prepare for the next level. All training sessions will use game-related activities to enhance player development. In using a game-related methodology for instruction, the goal for all players will be to develop motor skills and ball mastery to move the ball forward, create scoring chances, score goals, prevent the opponent from moving the ball forward, regain possession, denying the opponent scoring opportunities, and prevent the opponent from scoring goals. The player will also develop player qualities like: reading and understanding the game and making decisions; taking initiative, being proactive; demonstrating focus; executing with optimal technical abilities; and taking responsibility and accountability for their own development and performance.

DTP is administered by our Director of Coaching, Dutch Vigar.

Six weekly training sessions beginning on April 11th.  Cost is $40 (includes six sessions and jersey/pinny).
