About The RVDL Soccer Academy
As Director of Coaching for RVDL Soccer Academy Robin van der Laan will bring his English Premier League playing experience along with his vast knowledge gained as International Head Coach for Manchester United Soccer Schools to lead his team of Internationally experienced, UK trained UEFA A and UEFA B full time professional coaches in providing the very best coaching Canada has to offer.
Enroll in an RVDL Soccer Academy program and experience the very latest training equipment and coaching methods to help players improve their technique and game awareness in a very friendly, open and active learning environment where the players are encouraged to express themselves without any fear of making mistakes.
We believe that a soccer player at youth level will develop much better and quicker as a player and a person if we create a fun, safe, open and active learning environment, where each individual player is challenged at their ability level and development age. We ask players to come up with the answers themselves and problem solve during our sessions. The retention of information that is given during our sessions is therefore far greater than if we would coach in a constant command style.
It is our mission to deliver high intensity multi faceted sessions that include a lot of detailed coaching in an environment where all players are challenged at their ability level and where they experience how much fun soccer training can be. All players are encouraged to develop good playing habits. During our program the players work on all technical aspects of the game. This includes passing, receiving, dribbling, skills, defending, finishing, all progressing from 1v1 to 2v2 up to 6v6. These high intensity sessions also include soccer related fitness(SAQ).
