Friday night coaching sessions
DSC Elite Football Academy have our main coaching sessions for the age of 4 to 14 years, on a Friday evening between 5pm – 8pm. These intension sessions are delivered in small groups with each group coached by professionally qualified coaches.
Our ethos is to deliver a hi tempo programme focusing on ball mastery skills, technique, and a good attitude to develop the individual players. Our style of coaching is simple ‘we have a passion to motivate you talent’. We do this by coaching the detail in a fun, energetic and friendly atmosphere.
All buddy footballers are welcome at any level, from beginners, to grass roots to professional club academies. Our groups are split into ability so the players feel comfortable, but we expect them to develop their own personality within a team environment.
We have had players join us at DSC ElIte Football and within 6 months they have gone on to professional clubs at Premier League and Championship level and some have even signed academy contracts with these clubs.
One-2-One bespoke sessions
DSC Elite Football Academy offer bespoke coaching sessions to individual players or small groups. These sessions are designed to push the players and to give them a solid foundation in all aspects of the game and technical ability.
We perfect what the players are good at, and we develop and improve what their weaknesses are. If you have a player that has a passion for football and you think he or she can step up to the next level then these sessions are a must. Or if a player low on confidence, then our coaches will mentor them and kick start their enthusiasm for the game.
We have had many local grass roots team coaches comment that players who have been on our One-2-One programmes have massively improved their game and become big team players.
We have also had players come in from professional clubs development squads and gone on to sign academy contracts so these programmes can benefit players at all abilities.
The sessions are delivered by one of our senior professional coaches who are premier league academy standard, so you really are getting the best treatment. The sessions generally last for one hour and are designed for the individuals.
Football club coaching
Our coaches are also involved with many grass root clubs in the region. They coach teams at different age groups and also help the team managers with coaching sessions plans and programmes during the season and pre season training.
DSC Elite Football can deliver the sessions at the club venue or at Shoot 5, in the indoor facility.
Many of the clubs with have coached at have produced players who have signed for professional clubs.
Monday Night Match Based Sessions
Monday night match based sessions are held at Horizon Community College, Barnsley. S70 6PD. We accomadate U4’s up to U14’s and train between the hours 6:00pm and 8:00pm.
These sessions are designed to improve the individual when playing in a team. Like our other sessions we have a structured program with a unique topic focus every month.
Throughout the year the sessions will entail aspects of the game such as; defending as a unit, patterns of play, phases of play, communication as a team and other factors that help overall teams to succeed in football. We want the players to learn the details and information we are providing and take this back to the team they play for in order for them to improve. Like all our sessions Monday’s are high tempo and fast pace but they are unique becuase we focus on the game on a larger scale.
Grass Roots / Sunday League
We have grass roots team from Under 7’s up to U13’s. We compete in the Sheffield and Hallamshire league. The teams are taken by one of our coaches and not a volunteer therefore our approach is different compared to most other clubs. Our teams generally train on a Monday night and the sessions are focused on patterns of play, we have a set structure of topics throughout the year. If you are interested in joining the DSC grass roots community or have any questions please contact us for more information.
Holiday football camps
DSC Elite Football Academy at Shoot 5 run a series of holiday football camps throughout the year, during school holidays.
The holiday camps are designed to be fun and engaging and accommodate age groups 4-14. They usually start at 10am and finish at 3pm, but we also offer an early drop off and late pick up. They are prizes to be won and everyone is made to feel welcome.
These have been very popular because of the quality of the camps and get booked up very quickly, so book early. Watch out on our Club News sections for details of the camps throughout the the year.
We also offer Football Parties throughout the year, please contact us for more information.
