Why spend this Summer in German Soccer Camps?


German Soccer Camps 2021

Fußball, the word for Soccer in German, is the national sport of Germany. Die Mannschaft - the nickname for the German National Soccer Team - won the World Soccer Cup in 1954, 1974, 1990, and 2014 as well as the European Championship in 1972, 1980, and 1996. Among the best German soccer players were Franz Beckenbauer, Gerd Müller, Jürgen Klinsmann, Lothar Matthäus, and Oliver Kahn. In Germany, around 7 million people are active members of a Soccer club, and stadiums abound throughout the country. With some of the world's top football infrastructure, it is no wonder that many talented soccer players have been developed in  local youth fußballakademiens across German territory who have gone on later to play for the biggest soccer clubs in the Bundesliga and throughout Europe.

There are various Youth Soccer Camps and Soccer Schools in Europe where international youth soccer players can develop their soccer skills, but what makes the German Soccer Camps special? It's worth mentioning that Elite pro soccer clubs in Germany are going through an international winning streak which brings Germany under the spot light as a great place to master soccer. But it is perhaps the mass restructuring that German Soccer league teams went through in the late 90's that led to a powerful and thriving German Soccer industry.

The mass restructuring of German Soccer

As part of the restructuring, the German Football Association (DFB) invested millions in development and talent acquisition. This investment is also reflected in infrastructure of the latest technology to develop local soccer talent providing youth footballers from across the entire country with high performance centers and talent identification. Professional Soccer Teams invested more in the youth soccer academy system providing youth players with a more professional experience to shorten the gap between the German soccer academy level and Bundesliga. It is important to emphasize that in Germany, even the smallest of German soccer clubs typically have their own home including a clubhouse, stadium pitch, practice pitches, and perhaps even a fitness facility. Professional German Soccer Teams like Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, and RB Leipzig offer youth soccer camps during the summer months but also IFX offers a unique German Soccer Camp in the Summer which enables players not only train and learn from licenses German trainers but also to experience an authentic German club training environment through training within German youth team training sessions in the Nürnberg region.

The massive German soccer restructuring also had a lot to do with coaching style. It is no surprise that German coaches are the most successful in European soccer. Hans-Dieter "Hansi" Flick (Bayern München), Thomas Tuchel (Chelsea FC), Julian Nagelsmann (RB Leipzig) or Jürgen Klopp (FC Liverpool) all achieved not only many awards across Europe but also took the German game philosophy up a notch. In general, German soccer coaches leading teams either in the Bundesliga or Semi professional leagues hold the German football coaching license which is issued by the Deutscher Fussball-Bund. By taking part in a German Soccer Camp you benefit from the wealth of experience provided by pro German coaches specialized in talent development.
