DSA’s Goalie Program is headed by Ton Snip of the Netherlands. Ton will join us for his 9th year at DSA and comes from the Zaanstreek-Waterland region of Holland. 11 of Coach Ton’s goalies have been recruited to the professional league from his goalie academy! Currently, he is working for Amstelveen Heemraad as a goalie coach and also assists the field head coach. Ton also keeps busy as a personalized goalie instructor at the private soccer school Zaanpro with former Dutch pro players. Ton also owns a training and consulting company that organizes goalie clinics for soccer clubs in Holland.
Ton’s depth of experience and knowledge of the game has made a huge impact at Dutch Soccer Academy. He has an intense coaching style and knows how to prepare his goalies for the physical and mental demands of the goalie position. Students that sign up for the goalie program at DSA will receive very personal and customized instruction. Coach Ton does a great job relating the technical skills he teaches in private sessions to game situations. He is a tremendous mentor to our DSA players and also to our DSA staff where he is highly respected.
