11th Sport-Scholarships Men's Soccer Showcase in Moenchengladbach, Germany

11th Sport-Scholarships Soccer Showcase on Feb 2-3, 2019

We’ll hold the 11th edition of our annual showcase on Feb 2-3 this year. We’ll also offer a coaches’ workshop together with German Bundesliga club Borussia Mönchengladbach on the days preceding the event, on Jan 31st and Feb 1st.

As in previous years, we expect about 60-75 players from Germany, Austria & Switzerland to play at the event. We’re also looking to welcome about 35-45 coaches from all divisions.

We’ll start with an info session on Saturday morning, followed by specific performance testing (eleade), lunch and the games in the afternoon. We’ll also run a specific training session for our goalies. A nice dinner at a local brewery will help us to get back to strength before the games start again on Sunday morning. We’ll be finished at lunch and the coaches can talk to students/parents that they’re interested in individually then.

This year, we’ve chosen a soccer complex with natural grass and artificial grass fields, flood lights, a club house etc. Our event hotel is right across the street, a 4-star business hotel with nice rooms, small prices, gym, sauna etc. This is where we’ll also hold the info sessions, talks with the players etc.

For the first time since a few years, we’ll also cooperate with a German pro club, Borussia Mönchengladbach. The club has a Men’s and Women’s 1st Bundesliga team plus one of the best academies in the country. We can watch the Pro/U23/U19 training sessions on Thursday night and will hold a workshop there on Friday morning. We’ll learn about their famous club philosophy and new USA strategy. We’ll visit the stadium and all facilities. Most importantly, we’ll get together with the club’s pro and U23 coaches to exchange ideas about training elite-levels players in the U18-U23 age group. Anyone is invited to participate, you’d just need to arrive on Thursday instead of Saturday. This would also allow you to watch our 6th women’s showcase on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning if you like. As always, we can provide transportation to/from the airport or train station.
