German School, Shanghai
Since summer 2018, the BVB Evonik Football Academy cooperates with the German school in Shanghai with two locations and a BVB representative (coach) on-site. The German School Shanghai is an official technical partner of the BVB Evonik Football Academy. In total, more than 200 students between 3-18 years train and play according to the BVB-youth philosophy. Besides the technical and tactical education, a huge factor lies on the devolepment of social values including the BVB-groundrules, which are mandatory for every student.
The BVB representative conducts regular coaching seminars to ensure the quality of the BVB-education. In order to honor the cooperation, the students wear BVB-shirts in different Shanghai football leagues. Additionally yearly BVB-camps and a BVB-schoolshop bring the black and yellow feeling to Shanghai.
