DBS International Football Academy

Is a study and play abroad program based in DB Sports Tours European HQ in Dublin, Ireland. The academy is aimed at student-athletes from United States in high school and College with a keen interest and ability in soccer. Our Program also offers Irish players the opportunity to showcase their talents at different soccer tournaments throughout the United States and study for their SATs in order to successfully secure a soccer scholarship to the united states.

We have teamed up with the American College Dublin, a constituent college of Irish American University to give American students a once in a life-time opportunity to study and play soccer in Ireland. The college allows us to guarantee student-athletes collegiate credits during their time in Ireland as American College Dublin is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. Located in the heart of Dublin, on Merrion Square in a number of Georgian era houses, one of which is the childhood home of Oscar Wilde.

Our directive is to offer a detailed, all access insight, into holistic player development. Our objective of the program is to offer youth soccer players from the United States of America, an alternative method of coaching to complement that of their US coaches.

We focus on developing the individual player within a detailed curriculum of work. The players in our academy work off a syllabus, based on our playing philosophy, and implement it through our coaching methodology. Our European team of coaches are all minimum UEFA B license coaches, with University Degrees in sports-related subjects. They also undergo continuous training and development under the guidance of our Academy Director.
