Learning German, playing soccer and having fun together!
Parallel to the 2018 World Cup, the Goethe-Institut, in cooperation with Auf Ballhöhe, organised three-day soccer camps for schoolchildren* in the USA in June.
More than 60 soccer enthusiasts learned German together and then kicked together on the schoolyard, on the soccer field or in the gym.
They were instructed by two professional DFB-licensed youth trainers from Germany (Eintracht Frankfurt and Hertha BSC Berlin) and were able to prove their German as well as their soccer talent.
On the last day, a tournament was played according to a sophisticated system. All participants received T-shirts and medals; the respective winners were allowed to take home a trophy.
We thank the participating schools Stephen K. Hayt Elementary School and Acero Schoolnet as well as the coaches Matthias and Oli for this great action.
The soccer camps will be offered again next year.
