The Dubuque Soccer Club's Academy Programs are designed for the player looking to be challenged within the sport and advance their skills to the next level. Academy players train regularly to develop their soccer skills and training habits which will enable them to acquire a sense of mastery and competence, thus producing a confident individual able to compete against the highest level of competition from across the state and throughout the region.
The DSC is committed to providing our players a competitive and enjoyable training environment on a year round basis. Our training schedule is comprised of three seasons throughout the year: Fall / Winter / Spring-Summer. Players in the DSC are provided the opportunity to train twice per week throughout each season. The training schedule is supplemented by league matches, tournaments, friendlies, and festivals typically held on various weekends throughout the season. Travel is required in the Competitive program, and families should expect to travel 60-90 miles (sometimes further for the older age groups) for league games and to the surrounding states for tournaments.
