TAMPA DYNAMO FUTBOL CLUB

The Southampton Way

 


Tampa Dynamo Futbol Club is proud to announce the arrival of one of the premier European training programs in the world, the Southampton Way.

The Southampton Saints have developed some of the top players in club soccer such as Gareth Bale, Alan Shearer, Theo Walcott and Adam Lallana. By partnering with Southampton, Dynamo players and coaches now have access to the same training methods and programs designed and implemented to develop high level players – the Southampton Way.

The Southampton Way focuses on developing high quality players not only on the field of play, but off the pitch as well. The program provides the proper training not only on the field as an athlete but teaches young players the importance of balancing both sport and education with the belief that a well-balanced, educated and emotionally-stable young person will grow in to a better player and make the right decisions both on and off the field.

“We look forward to sharing the Southampton Way with players and coaches participating in our programs. We’re committed to offering a range of opportunities which ensures Southampton Football Club’s Football Development and Support Center can influence and support development of coaches and players,’’ said Les Reed, Executive Director of Football, Southampton Football Club.

Every Dynamo coach will have access to the training program and will be able to design and craft a plan for their teams utilizing Southampton’s extensive library of training sessions that are age-group specific designed to teach the proper technical skills and understanding of the game that leads to success on the field.

“By partnering with Southampton, our coaches will be able to provide a stronger foundation of education for our players and therefore offer better player development both athletically and socially throughout the Dynamo program,’’ said Dimas Amaral, Director of Coaching for Tampa Dynamo.

The Southampton Way commitment in not only helping player development but a better young person strengthens the foundation of Tampa Dynamo, whose motto remains, “Building our Community, one soccer family at a time.’’
