2018 Staff

To guarantee the Dutch way of coaching; all of our coaches are licensed and extensively trained by the Royal Dutch Football Federation (KNVB). We fly in our coaches directly from the Netherlands.

We select our coaches for their ability to teach and their passion for the game. Our coaches speak three languages – Dutch, English and Soccer !  

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 can coach them individually, assessing their needs and improving the specific areas best for them.
