About us... 

The coaching at Soaring Soccer is greatly influenced by the Dutch vision of coaching soccer. With two trips to evaluate player development in the Netherlands and over 200 hours of coaching as a staff member of COERVER camps & receiving the COERVER Instructional Certificate, JVK uses these methods in his own camp training sessions (particularly the FootSKILL Builder) by putting technical development first. In the activities, there is less down time because of little or no lines, less talk, more action.

No player is left out. No player is over looked. No player can hide. So every player is involved.

Every player will be encouraged. Every player will be recognized. Soaring Soccer Staff "will" catch a great moment in every player and let the world know! By the time a practice or training is over, each youngster should be proud of something they've achieved.

The psychology of every age has been studied and is understood whats needed for success.

FUN comes first, but we really enjoy seeing players improve too. Often, games are played as small as 1v1 with teams. 

Every day will end in a scrimmage. Scrimmages range in size of 3v3s, 4v4 to a maximum of 8v8. The field shapes are altered in length or width and even multiple goals in each direction to influence specific challenges and to be successful in the topic we want to give the players.
