Hi, I’m Carlos! A coach, sports enthusiast, and the founder of

I fell in love with the game at a very young age like many of you. I’ve been following and playing soccer for many years.

Throughout my career, I always enjoyed helping soccer players chase their dreams, which is why I started this website. I wanted to reach a larger audience outside of my local area and was born.

This website is a platform I will be using to update club pages on any tryouts, stadiums, players, tech, and more from clubs around the world. I also create free recruitment profiles for players looking to have that extra competitive edge when reaching out to clubs.

That’s it. That’s my pitch for you to stick around (or browse the site as you please).

This is already too much text for a “see more” drop-down button thing. If you want to reach out to me, head on over to my contact page 🙂

SBV Vitesse Academy


At Vitesse we play matches to win and to entertain the audience. We always play with the intention of scoring goals .

The Vitesse’s football is characterized in that the game varied is. Players continuously make choices, depending on the situation , with the intention of surprising the opponent . As a result, they have to respond to us. We determine what, where and how the game is played.

Players take a lot of initiative, both with and without the ball, so that there are more opportunities to continuously find solutions. There is always movement , there are many position changes and players have a lot of depth . We always enter the field with guts and conviction . We believe in ourselves and do everything we can to win it in every match. We dare to excel and are convinced that we can win if we ‘play well’ .

In addition, team spirit is an important part of our vision. This means that the team works well together and forms a close-knit collective. Everyone knows their role in the team and players support and correct each other. Every player knows the qualities of his teammates, but also the limitations. They use it or take it into account.

Our game is played with a high intensity . In addition to the high tempo, this is also reflected in the way of attacking and defending in which players play football with aggression, passion (‘with the heart’) and energy.


In order to play Vitesse football, we need a certain type of player. In our view, this is a combination of aptitude, the ability to develop and personality .

Vitesse players learn to understand the essence of football action from an early age. They not only know what to do, but also understand why it is necessary. When players understand the game, they are better able to make their own choices in different situations. They recognize in every situation where the space lies, which possibilities there are and players can make decisions quickly . A Vitesse player is aware of his own football style, qualities and limitations and makes use of this. He is technically and physically in optimal condition , so that he can play Vitesse football at top level and can maintain this for a long time .

A Vitesse player is a top athlete who is busy at any time of the day to perform well. This means that during every activity he is busy getting better . During training and competitions he is constantly working to get and stay in the ideal performance state and he will do everything he can to win.

Our players have the personality to become an absolute top player. They are driven, dedicated and motivated to achieve their ambition . Our players have the discipline and willingness to execute every detail perfectly. They have the resilience to persevere in times of stress, exhaustion, disappointment and changing situations and to look for solutions.

They believe they can improve by working hard and purposefully every day. They have the skills to direct this on a daily basis.


In our vision of learning to play football, we believe in making every training moment football and match real . Players are thus optimally questioned and challenged. Our players learn to work in a solution -oriented way. We don’t tell players what to do, but ask them what to do. In addition, we ensure that players learn implicitly by choosing the right exercises.

Self-reflection plays an important role in our vision . As a result, players are more aware of their development. Our way of influencing initiates the following process: setting goals> implementing> evaluating> setting goals> …

For us individual attention center . We believe that personal attention is essential for development and performance. Those who receive attention and genuine interest develop faster and will perform better. Every player has certain qualities and limitations and therefore needs customization in his development plan. Most attention is paid to the strengths of a player, although the points for improvement are not forgotten. During each training , the trainer takes into account the development points of each player ; in addition, attention is paid to our football principles, the physical stimulus and a top sports accent for the entire team.

We also think it is important that players learn to interact with others . Some examples that play a role in the group process are: How do you behave in a team, how do you communicate with each other, discovering other cultures and getting to know each other’s qualities and shortcomings.

We look at each training continues at the border and bring our players in situations where they up to be questioned.
