The Houston Dutch Lions FC has opened up registration for the Youth Academy. The Youth Academy of the Houston Dutch Lions FC is growing and has already passed the 100 members line. All team practices are at the clubs new facility. On the two artificial turf fields all teams will work on their technical and tactical skills. With these amazing new fields a high ball speed is guaranteed and therefore asks more of the players at practice. Combined with the Dutch philosophy these players improve significant!
PDL team the Coaches work on implementing the Dutch philosophy, this means improving players through age appropriate exercises. For Development players (4 until 10 years, boys and girls) the most important exercises are the ones were the players get to know the ball. Improving players also means helping them find a way to find a solution in each situation on the field.
When a player reaches the Select level (10 until 18 years old, boys and girls) the tactical exercises are added. At the Select level, players are challenged through tactical exercises and team play is added to the players ‘knowledge’.
