Academy Teams

The Dutch Lions FC Academy is greatly looking forward to the 2013-2014 soccer year. With teams playing in competitive Ohio South leagues such as the Buckeye Premier League or the MVYSA League, the Dutch Lions Youth Academy is ready for another great year of developing young players.

The Dayton Dutch Lions FC soccer club offers 3 academy programs. The Junior Academy Program is for the youngest players. In this academy the primary focus is technical development. After the Junior Academy the players will move up to the Premier Academy or the Development Academy. Both Academy programs have similar objectives, coaching curriculum, and development plans. All of which are based on the Dutch Coaching Philosophy and closely working together with our Dutch Premier League partner FC Twente. The difference is the competitive level of which the teams play and the number of soccer activities per week, which includes training sessions, video analysis sessions, player and parent evaluation meetings, and other team events or meetings. In the Premier Academy the number of activities will be higher than in the Development Academy. You can find more information about team development in our section Academy Objectives.
