Our Vision

DPN23 is an Elite football school which aims to provide young athletes with an opportunity to develop for future professional environments.

The DPN23 Vision

Our vision is focused on ‘Teaching Youngsters how to play’. DPN23 aims to provide a variety of high quality structured training methods where young players are challenged technically, tactically and physically in order to make a positive difference on match day.

The DPN23 Difference

In 2017, an extensive European trip to Ajax Amsterdam, Atalanta BC, FC Barcelona, Partizan Belgrade and Juventus FC has further expanded and reassured our knowledge and understanding of current and modern youth coaching methods. This knowledge acquired in conjunction with our football beliefs over many years has led us to create DPN23, where a clear and unique footballing philosophy has been put in place.

DPN23 is a ’boutique based’ football school, where young Elite players are challenged daily to become better people and overall better footballers. DPN 23 believe that technical ability on its own is simply not enough to develop into a professional player. We first and foremost aim to instil our deepest values to all our students; honesty, humbleness, respect, resilience, appreciation and a strong work ethic.

Along with developing strong individual personality traits, strong emphasis is placed on technical exercises that promote fluidity on the ball. Tactical understanding, personality, speed and physical training in addition are essential components of our environment. DPN23 strongly believes that football intelligence or game intellect developed within realistic, specific  and highly detailed training sessions seperate the amateur player from the professional.

Players Wellbeing

Our partnership with Jubilee Physiotherapy will allow all our players to complete screening tests which will allow pre-habilitation and strength and condition programs to be put in place and assist the players physical wellbeing.

All training sessions at DPN23 are based on and around the match. Our football school’s resources include one full grass field, a gymnasium, a futsal court, modern dressing rooms and a video analysis room which allows us to work on all facets of the game.
