Unleashing Soccer Potential on Dasherboard-Equipped Fields

Guest post by Roberto Gonzalez, Director of Cabras FC

At Cabras Football Club, we believe in providing exceptional training opportunities for soccer athletes. Our Small Group Training program at the Dover Sportsplex offers a unique advantage by utilizing smaller soccer fields equipped with dasherboards. In this blog post, we will explore the advantages of training on these specialized fields and how they can elevate players' skills and performance to new heights.

1. Increased Agility and Quickness:

The inclusion of dasherboards at the Dover Sportsplex offers a unique opportunity to enhance agility and quickness. The restricted space encourages rapid responses to changing situations, honing reflexes and sharpening agility. Players adapt to the compact surroundings, mastering quick direction changes, and rapid acceleration. These skills translate seamlessly into larger game scenarios, providing athletes with a competitive edge to outmaneuver opponents effectively.

2. Intensified Gameplay Dynamics:

Dasherboards can add an exciting element to training sessions by intensifying gameplay dynamics. These boards act as boundaries, or even an extra player, keeping the ball in play and ensuring a continuous flow of action. The presence of dasherboards facilitates faster gameplay, requiring players to react quickly and make decisions. The constant engagement and heightened intensity on these fields simulate real match conditions, helping players adapt to the fast-paced nature of competitive games.

3. Individualized Attention and Instruction:

Our Small Group Training program at the Dover Sportsplex maintains a maximum of five players per session. This limited group size ensures that each athlete receives personalized attention and instruction from our coaches. The smaller training environment allows for targeted feedback, and tailored guidance to address individual needs. This focused approach maximizes the development and growth of each player.


Training on smaller soccer fields equipped with dasherboards at the Dover Sportsplex offers a range of advantages that contribute to players' overall skill development. The emphasis on technique, increased agility and quickness, intensified gameplay dynamics, and the opportunity for small-sided play and decision-making all work together to enhance players' performance on the larger field. Additionally, the individualized attention and instruction provided in our Small Group Training program ensure that athletes receive the guidance needed to reach their full potential.
