Dayton Futbol Academy U7 - U19 Club Mission

The Dayton Futbol Academy  U7 - U19 Club mission is to offer the best facilities, coaching and playing environment for all players.


Player development; improve each and every player on the principles of play. Creating the right environment that provides elements essential for a well-rounded player is a major goal at Dayton Futbol Academy. The development of a soccer player is a process in which players progress gradually from a simple to more complex involvement in the game. It’s a long term process that focuses on the holistic approach of the player. Players should always compete at a level that is both challenging and demanding in order to foster improvement.

Fees that are fair and affordable and a financial aid program for families in need.

These Premier players may want to pursue making their school teams.

Our Premier level teams consist of a diversified group of players; each player having a different need but all looking to improve their overall development with a less demanding schedule.
