The main objective of SDA is to provide driven soccer players with the opportunity to expand their knowledge and technical ability of the game within the game. This develops players who can understand and execute effectively on and off the ball under pressure at game speed. SDA has a record of proven success with numerous Premier level and state, regional and national ODP players currently training in the academy and former players competing at Division I universities with soccer scholarships.
My experiences as a player, trainer, and an educator at the highest levels has allowed me to take what is efficient and combine it with philosophies from such nations as England, Brazil and the Netherlands. With these methods, SDA develops a player's technical, tactical, physical, mental and emotional game to a higher level that they never thought was attainable.
