For Travel Soccer Players
The Dutch Soccer School experience is unique from other overnight camps. We only accept serious players with previous competitive soccer experience. Every year, talented players attend our camps and challenge each other to the limit, growing in skill and experience. A number of our campers have been invited and participated in trials with professional clubs in Holland.
Accommodations at Caroll University
The beautiful campus is located in Waukesha Wisconsin. Less than 20 minutes from Milwaukee, one hour from Madison and 1.5 hours from Chicago.
We permit all overnight campers to choose their roommate or we will assign a roommate for them. Two to three campers will be assigned to each room. Each camper will be provided with three nutritional meals each day. Commuter campers will receive lunch and dinner.
Air-conditioning in all rooms!
We fly in our coaches directly from the Netherlands. They are not merely coaches; they are also teachers and mentors. Many of our coaches have graduated from a four- year CIOS College. At the Central Institution of Sports, coaches not only received their coaching licenses from the global leader in soccer development: KNVB (Royal Dutch Soccer Federation), they also learned how to work with, encourage, and incentivize young athletes. Every camp group will have the same Dutch coach for the entire week. Our coaches will get to know each of the players in their group and will coach them individually, assessing their needs and improving the specific areas best for them.
and Power Shooting
Each morning session will include “Fast Footwork”:
- Ball mastery each morning: back-, side-, feinting- and turn moves
- 1v1 and 2v2 (applying moves)
- small sided games
Each afternoon will include a “Power Shooting Session” (both feet) combined with moves and first touch training.
4 vs. 4 games
In the Dutch soccer vision, the 4 vs. 4 game is the cornerstone. These games provide the foundation for playing attractive soccer. Each player has many touches on the ball, while learning to solve a variety of soccer problems. The 4 vs.4 provides many goals and excitement. Each afternoon we organize a different 4 vs. 4 format. We also keep track of the points of each player. Players will play short games, with and against different players each time.
Unique Camp Competitions
At the Dutch Soccer School our players don’t just train. We also create games out of almost every exercise. Campers can win exciting prices! Beside the Dutch 4 vs. 4 competition with individual winners, we challenge our campers with camp finals in 1 vs. 1, dribbling, penalties, and shooting. Our objective is to improve each player’s technique, insight, mentality and speed of play.
In the Dutch vision of soccer, goalkeepers play a very important role. They are far more than the people who stop the ball and prevent goals. They are integrated into the field and are seen as key players, with skills equal to the 10 field players.
All campers are supervised 24 hours a day by our camp counselors, who stay on site with the players to ensure proper conduct and safety.
Certified Medical Trainer(s)
Our trainer(s) will be available during all camp sessions in case a camper needs physicial treatment for any injury or illness. He/she will have a station at check in to go over each camper’s medical information/records.
Free Dutch Soccer
Every camper will receive two Dutch Soccer School shirts.
Camp Store & Bank
Campers may bring spending money for cold drinks, snacks, etc. A camp bank is provided where parents and campers can deposit funds in the bank at registration and withdraw money as needed. All unused funds are returned in full at the end of camp.
