DFB-Junior-Coach Training at ISR

Wednesday, 03 July 2019

Once again last week 17 football enthusiasts from a total of six area schools were able to complete their training as DFB Junior Coaches at ISR. Under the guidance of our sports teacher Karsten Baumann, a former Bundesliga player and trainer, the students were trained as licensed junior trainers through theoretical and practical exercises. The training, which has been held at the ISR in cooperation with the DFB for several years now, paves the way for students to enter into a career as a football trainer.

At the end of the successful week, the junior coaches received their hard-earned certificates from Mr. Mirko Schweikhardt and Mr. André Lengsfeld, who work for the Commission for Schools and Childcare Centers. They also welcomed Mr. Dirk Gärtner, Chairman of the Lower Rhine Football Association and Mr. Peter Soliman, Managing Partner of ISR. The Commerzbank, which supports this training as a premium partner of the DFB, was represented by Mr. Alexander Weckauf. Everyone congratulated the students during the festive ceremony and encouraged them to keep up their training during their summer holiday.

We would like to thank all participants for this great cooperation and we’re already looking forward to next year!
