Beginners' Courses, Advanced Courses and High-Performance Courses

  • image

General information

Only those who train all year round will improve continuously. That is why the Football Academy offers you courses all year round, not just during the school holidays. These are divided into beginners' courses, advanced courses and high-performance courses. By making technical improvements in the individual courses, the participants have the opportunity to move on to the next level. Thus, all participants can train in an optimal environment with a group of players that are at a similar level.

image

Beginners' Courses

In the training sessions of the beginners' courses, you have the chance to work on your football skills. In small groups, our trainers focus on the individual performance level of all participants. This gives each child the opportunity to develop their strengths and improve on their weaknesses. It is important for beginners to get their first experiences in this way. The beginners' courses are aimed at boys and girls aged six to 13 and are offered every Sunday. You can book a place on the beginners' course in the online shop.

"Goalkeeper" Beginners' Course
image
Bei den Torwartkursen lernen die Kinder die richtigen Techniken des Torwartspiels.

The goalkeeper plays a key role in any team. The skills a goalkeeper needs have become much more complex over the years. Modern goalkeeper training, for example, is much more than just protecting the goal.

The licensed goalkeeper training team teaches different topics in the beginners' courses, such as coordination, the right starting position, all types of catching techniques, positioning and even challenging for the ball. In order to make the training as effective as possible, it takes place over several weeks in small groups.

The golden rule: only once you master one-on-ones as a goalkeeper will you become a real wall in goal!

Our goalkeeping course includes:

  • One training session per week (Sundays)
  • Goalkeeper gloves
  • Drinks throughout the session
  • Drinks bottle, medal & certificate of participation
  • Choose between a yellow or black BVB goalkeeper kit from PUMA (shirt, trousers, socks and gym bag)

Advanced Courses

Advanced players who have already had good basic technical training can be considered for our advanced courses. This is a year-round course outside the school holidays, which cannot be booked directly by the participants. Children from all the courses held at the Football Academy are picked out by the BVB trainers and asked whether they would like to participate in the advanced courses. The advanced courses take place once or twice a week and focus on the refinement of the basic techniques taught on the previous courses. The advanced courses always begin at the start of the quarter and offer optimal training for all advanced children all year round.

High-Performance Courses

Destined for greater things? The high-performance courses are the top level, which follows on from the advanced courses and forms the foundation for the academy's youth performance centre. Here, if you are particularly talented and are one of the best players in your year group, you have the opportunity to train all year round. The high-performance course takes place in addition to the normal club training. You have the opportunity to receive additional support from our BVB trainers up to twice a week. In addition to normal training, we also regularly play against our academy teams. All the children know each other very well, since most of them work together over an extended period of time. Through optimal support in performance-based groups, participants in the high-performance course often make the jump to the academy's youth performance centre.

Players who have made an excellent impression on the other courses or on the talent-finding days are invited by our trainers to try out in the high-performance courses. If you show that you can keep up there, you can take part in the high-performance courses.

It is not possible to register for these course models directly!

The goals of the foundation include in particular targeted, age-appropriate sports for children and young people, as well as the promotion of an active and healthy lifestyle. The foundation operates its own football academy, which is located in the city of Goczałkowice-Zdrój in a purpose-built, modern sports centre that is scheduled to start operating in 2019.

Borussia Dortmund supports the foundation and the establishment of the football academy with expertise, as well as name and logo usage rights. In return, the foundation runs non-commercial courses (and as far as legally possible) commercial vacation courses on behalf of BVB in Poland on a non-exclusive basis.

Location Goczalkowice – Zdroj
