Throughout the autumn holidays the many playing fields in and around Dortmund were alive with the sights and sounds of football. Our licensed BVB coaches and of course several highly motivated kids gave it their all in black and yellow over the last four weeks!

Starting with our holiday courses at FC Heppenheim, Eintracht Lübeck, SC Opel Rüsselsheim and together with IKK classic at SVS Griesheim. After all, there are also a huge number of BVB fans and talented young players outside Dortmund. In addition to healthy food and exciting half-time activities, all the boys and girls who took part were also given a certificate and a medal!

In the meantime, in Dortmund, preparations for the two-week autumn holidays were running at full speed! All of the coaches who were not on the road in other federal states set about their tasks with great gusto to make sure everything ran smoothly in Dortmund as well. The focus here was on our hygiene concept, but also on the full-throttle programme for the kids. Because what's better than to play football and have lunch next to the most beautiful stadium in the world, or to go on a stadium tour!

Our two-week autumn holidays in Dortmund were a complete success once again. In addition to the visit from mascot EMMA, the half-time activities based around nutrition and team building, and of course the stadium tour through SIGNAL IDUNA PARK, there were two great training sessions every day. In the various training sessions focusing on shooting, dribbling, controlling the ball and carrying the ball, as well as tricks and feints, we once again saw the joy spread among all those involved!

Different times call for different measures to allow us to implement our hygiene concept successfully across all the locations and with the help of all the kids, parents, grandparents, fans and of course all the volunteers and employees. And for that we would like to say a big "THANK YOU". Thank you for all your understanding and thank you for allowing us to count on you!

We are looking to the future and looking forward to the Easter holidays next year. Speaking of next year: check it out. As of 16 November you can secure your place on the next course!
