DFB-Junior-Coach 2019

logo dfb junior coachWe are happy to again this year be able to offer students of the ISR and other schools an exciting and interesting opportunity to qualify as a DFB junior coach.

What is a DFB-Junior-Coach?

The DFB-Junior-Coach is an introduction to licensed coaching. The program tackles the major challenges football is currently facing, such as demographic change, longer school hours and the declining volunteer work. The aim of the program is to increase the number of young trainers in Germany as well as to promote volunteer work.

Who can participate?

Football-enthusiastic students age 15 or above can join. The training is presented by the FVN - Football Association Lower Rhine and the ISR. The training is led by Karsten Baumann, a trained football coach and sport teacher at the ISR.

The ISR has been named "FVN Training School" for the fourth time in a row this year and looks forward to once again train with committed and talented young footballers.
