Everybody can win

Both girls and boys of 7-19 years of age, independently of their skills and pitch position may participate in the German Soccer Skills camps. At the German Soccer Skills camps three skills tests are run to discover the best players.

In this way the Winners of the camps are appointed and we award them with a prize: training abroad. In that way we try to equalise opportunities of young players and their peers from the countries with the most developed football culture.

We want them to see the best foreign clubs, the best training methods and even support their chances for signing professional contacts with the best clubs.
