“I am a big fan! What I saw the Dare Academy doing when I came over to the States, Peter and the rest of the coaches are doing a great job of replicating the English academy environment in the States. I could see the benefits of this when they came and played against our teams here at the Academy.”

Michael Donaldson – (Tottenham Hotspur Academy Coach)

Dare Academy Parents


“Coach Peter’s Dare Academy both spring and summer camp was a great camp for my son to continue to develop his soccer skills while on break. Peter runs his camp with lots of discipline and manages for all players to continuously be practicing a certain skill or develop new skills throughout each week. With the use of an indoor facility, SoccerZone Indoor, all the players were in a more controlled and air conditioned environment and others like my son never wanted to leave! My son had a terrific time at camp and always wanted to go back!”

Monica Andujar – (mother of Victor Andujar)


“Our son Alexander has been a part of The Dare Academy since he was 9 years old. This academy program has allowed him the opportunity to improve his soccer skills with a wide range of local and international coaches and provided the competitive environment needed for him to become the best soccer athlete possible. The Dare Academy also organized a wonderful trip to England, which gave our son the opportunity to test his skill level against some of England's top academy teams. We were also able to tour some professional stadiums and enjoy a professional match during our stay. Alexander's passion for the game grew tremendously as a result of that experience. He is now 12 years old and entering into his second season with one of the nation's top academy programs, Inter Miami. The Dare Academy has definitely played a major role in Alexander's growth and success as a player and his overall love for the game. We highly recommend it to any family considering making a wise investment in the future of their child.”

Dare Academy Player


“The Dare Academy is a more than just a developmental program, it has not only made me better as player, but as a teammate, and a person. My advancement with the Dare Academy has proven me a great expansion in my technical ability with the ball and tactical ability to read the game. The trip to Portland, OR was easily one the best football experiences I’ve ever made, being able to be exposed to a top tier academy in the country and playing against the level matured my mental as a footballer. My time I spent as a Junior coach for the program allowed me to look at football from a different perspective which was quite distinctive. Now, I play for Inter Miami CF’ Academy, and I thank Peter Dare and the Dare Academy for the exposure of what an MLS academy is like.”

Snyder Fils-Amie


“Coach Peter is an outstanding coach. His desire and determination for his players to improve is unique. He knows how to communicate well with his players. My trip in England was a one of a kind experience. As a player I was exposed to a different level of soccer. In England we played against top clubs that displayed what’s it’s like to play top tier soccer. This experience helped push me and become more focused and determined on my goal for the future. Coach Peter helped build my mentality as soccer player and I can’t thank him enough. I wish him all the best in the future.”

Carl Laurent


“The Dare Academy summer camp was an amazing soccer experience that allowed me to grow and develop as a player. I began to participate in the Dare Academy camp during my U16 club season. Over the next three years I saw a massive increase in my ability and understanding of the game. I also went on the Dare Academy trip to Portland in the summer of 2018. That trip was an amazing experience that me and my friends still look back to today as one of our best ever soccer experiences. What I learned from my time at the Dare Academy summer camp allowed me to have an amazing trip playing wise and be awarded the MVP of the trip. Now I am one of the coaches at the Dare Academy summer camp where I have the pleasure of working with many extremely talented young players and witness them improve as players. I definitely believe that participating in the Dare Academy summer camp is crucial for the development of any young player.”
