Our next session of DTP is in April!

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 who express a desire to play soccer at a higher level (become a travel player).   

Spring sessions will be on April 5, 19, 26 and May 3, 17.  The fee is $35 for all five 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.

Five weekly training sessions beginning on April 7th. Cost is $35 (in addition to Rec fees).
