DL Bellbrook Academy

We are very happy to announce the continutiy of the DL Bellbrook Academy in the 2013 Spring. The partnership between Dayton’s local professional soccer club, the Dayton Dutch Lions FC, and Bellbrook’s biggest soccer club, Bellbrook Soccer Association, has led to the birth of a combined effort to provide the best possible development opportunity for local soccer players in Bellbrook in the 2012 Fall. After a very successful first edition of the training program the Dutch Lions and Bellbrook Soccer have decided to continue and expand the DL Bellbrook Academy. The DL Bellbrook academy is an additional training program for local soccer players of the ages 4 – 14 (in 3 separated groups, ages 4-7, 8-10 and 11-14) who are interested in developing fundamental soccer skills.


In this training program, the first basic skills of soccer are taught to the soccer players. Getting more familiar with the ball and learning basic skills such as dribbling, toe taps, boxing and rolling the ball are key components in the curriculum. The training sessions are on basic skills that are the foundation to becoming better players. Of course at the end of every practice, the players will get the opportunity to showcase what they have learned that session in a short scrimmage.


Our partnership with Bellbrook Soccer will also provide Coaching development. We encourage the recreational coaches to attend and observe during these training sessions. Coaches will learn the drills used to develop players fundamental skills and how to translate those skills into game situations.


For this training course, Bellbrook Soccer is offering a FREE performance training top for all the players who sign up for this first session. The shirt will in the familiar Dutch Lions orange! The full course will be 8 practices on either Wednesday or Thursday nights, depending on the age group. starting at 6:00 PM and ending at 7:00 PM at Sackett Wright Park. The price for the first session of the DL Bellbrook academy will be $40 for 8 training session. This fee included the professional coaching, all field and equipment costs and the free training top. The fee needs to be paid in full before the first session and is non refundable.
