We currently field co-ed Academy teams ranging from U8 to U14. This 3-5 times a week Individual Player Development Academy program provides the Academy player with the very best coaching environment Canada has to offer.  Building from the bottom up, our goal is to field teams up to the U20 age groups.  Also working towards dedicated girls teams in the U12, U14, U16 and U20 age groups.

All of our Academy players continue to progress very well during this past season with many players showing marked improvement. The hard work training, during the Winter months and continuing on through the spring and summer is put to the test during our SAAC Player Development League play.

It is our mission to deliver high intensity multifaceted sessions that include a lot of detailed technical 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 while utilizing the ball at their feet almost all the time.Programing includes age appropriate training and skills development following our Development Model and annual curriculum. Other specialty programs include: Yoga program, Speed Agility Quickness program, Strength and Conditioning program including an optional personalized program for continued development at home, Tactical classroom sessions during the winter months and fitness and skills testing to monitor training effectiveness. Most games are played in the SAAC Player Development League and various tournaments including trips to the USA and Europe. We will be working closely with players to provide them the necessary tools to help reach their long term goals whether to play professionally or pursue a soccer scholarship.

I highly recommend RVDL Soccer Academy, my son loves it there and the coaches are great! There is a large emphasis on technical skills and the kids receive a lot of individual attention due to the coach-player ratio. The kids learn so much while having fun!

Our son's been training with RVDL for just under a year now and has developed quite significantly not only technically but also in his confidence on and off the field. This is all thanks to the positive enriching environment that has been created by Coach Steve, Coach Stefan and Team Owner Mike.
Prior to arriving at RVDL, our son had trained with a big team in Oakville - they were well over capacity and our son was frequently told he could stay on the team to train however games weren't an option because he didn't have any game time experience. Read that again. He didn't have game time experience because he wasn't offered any. From our experience in speaking with many parents out of Oakville, this is the reality and the norm.
How will your son/daughter ever develop to build their confidence and flourish in the sport they love under a " stacked team" well over capacity who's sole focus isn't your child's OWN development and growth but the team's winning.
It's just not possible.

RVDL isn't like any other club. They care about our kids, bottom line, and know how to properly train a player at each and every practice with one on one attention.
Remember parents, it's all about development and love of the game : )

We have been with RVDL for several years and can say that the training that kids receive is true European football. Our kids have progressively gotten better every year, which is what truely matters not whether teams win or lose a game. We currently have two of our three kids at RVDL, our eldest moved to the OVDL program at age 13, after being with RVDL for 6 years. He is considered to be strong soccer player on his team. This would not have been possible without RVDL’s coaches and training program.
