Over the past nine years these camps have been nothing short of excellent with a top-notch staff.   The combination of technical skills and game like situational training is what differentiates this camp from any other my son has attended.

DJ and his team of trainers have continually provided outstanding soccer skills training for children of all changes. My three girls have attended these camps for several years and have always had a positive athletic experience.

Working with DJ and the entire camp staff has without a doubt made me the person I am today. Today, I am a commissioned officer in the United States Army. The lessons I’ve learned from the dedicated staff and from DJ, helped prepare me for the real world, both on and off the field.

As a parent, it is vital to put your child into athletic programs that understand skill development and personal development. The STRIVE Athletics staff treat each child as a unique and special individual. The athletes receive precisely what they need from a skill, social and personal development standpoint. And of course, seeing a field full of smiles is priceless.

I’ve experienced the offerings of STRIVE Athletics as both a VOB Soccer parent and coach. As a parent, I value STRIVE Athletics because my girls learn and have fun. As a coach, I’ve been consistently impressed with the quality of trainers on staff. Like DJ, the STRIVE Athletics staff does an amazing job of coaching and motivating young players.

My 4 year old participated in the STRIVE Athletics KickStart program and the experience was nothing short of phenomenal! The coaching staff is patient, kind, and always goes the extra mile to make sure each and every child feels valued and supported. My little one has not only improved their athletic skills but has also gained confidence and a love for sports. My family highly recommends this program to anyone looking for top-notch coaching and a positive sports environment for their child.
