DFB Junior Coach Training

logo dfb junior coachWe would like to offer students of ISR as well as of other schools, the exciting opportunity to qualify as a DFB Junior Coach.

What does it mean to be a DFB Junior Coach?

The DFB Junior Coach qualification in an important segment within the coaching system of the German Football Association (DFB) and serves as a stepping stone to qualifying as a licenced trainer. The program takes on the biggest challenges facing football such as the demographic change, the extension of schooling time and the lack of volunteers. The objective of the program is to ensure a steady supply of qualified coaches as well as encourage volunteerism in sports.

Who can participate?

Students and football fans from the age of 15 onwards receive a 40-hour training course in order to qualify as a DFB Junior Coach. The aim is to give students coaching experience at a very young age and train them to teach young children on how to have fun while playing football. The training is supported by the regional association (FVN – Fußballverband Niederrhein is responsible for the Rhine-Neuss District). Level C licenced trainers will run the program.

Since February 2017, ISR can offer the DFB Junior Coach training at our premises. We are looking forward to enthusiastic, young and talented football players, willing to commit to this program.
