Football Academy Location
Hennef (Sieg), Germany is a lovely town of roughly 50,000 inhabitants in the Rhein-Sieg district of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It’s situated on the river Sieg, 4 miles south-east of Siegburg and 9 miles east of Bonn.
Hennef is home to FC Hennef 05, a lower division professional German football club with which our technical football director, Mr. Zamani is closely associated and able to insert EduKick Germany participants for additional training sessions and trial opportunities.
All EduKick Germany academy players are accommodated in Home Stay accommodation with an accredited police back ground checked, German family.
Note: The EduKick Germany course is an independent football & education course and our EduKick Germany academy players are expected to adhere to the rules and regulations of this course, including in-house curfews. For this reason at EduKick Germany, only responsible and dedicated footballers 14+ need apply.
Get Personal Training From Pro Coach & Clubs In Germany
This is a unique opportunity for competitive international footballers to train directly with a former professional Bundesliga German coach and be scouted and assessed for possible professional contract offer. EduKick previously worked with Coach Zamani several years back (2003-2009) doing summer soccer camps in Germany.
Two Football Power Houses Join Forces
EduKick founder, Joseph Bilotta and Coach Zamani remained in touch over the years and have reunited to open the latest EduKick International Football Academy venue, EduKick Germany Football Academy! EduKick believes that living, studying and training in a foreign country is an invaluable experience that a player will never forget and the benefits of such an experience will be embedded positively into that individual for the rest of her life.
The EduKick Germany Football Academy is for competitive international footballers from 14-24 years of age that are interested in living abroad in Germany from one to nine months (or more).
During that period, you will have the opportunity to enroll in a German High School, older players can study German language and all players train daily under the direction of an experienced, young and enthusiastic UEFA A licensed professional German coach.
Our Commitment To Quality
EduKick Germany staff, led by Mr. Zamani, are keenly aware of the challenges that our academy presents to our players and are fully committed to the overall football, linguistic and cultural education of each individual through our football development and language immersion program in Germany.
Living, playing soccer and studying in Germany as a teenager or young adult represents an enormous challenge for both the participant and the educators. From the participant’s; courage, effort and character is required to succeed. From the EduKick Germany staff, it demands creativity, professional guidance, supervision, mentorship and expertise in order to provide the required level of service to our young players while abroad with us at EduKick Germany.
A One-Of-A-Kind Education & Football Training Experience
EduKick Germany international players 14-18 can enter into our affiliated German High School. Older players (16+) can study German language three times weekly (2.5-3 hours per class) with a private accredited German language teacher “German Soccer Language” classes will also be held once per week. Classes will be a relaxed atmosphere where students are made to feel comfortable. The teaching methods focus on the entire class as a group, but individual students will get plenty of one-on-one attention from the private teacher, based on their skill levels, which will ultimately accelerate their learning curve.
Life Abroad: Football Training, Social Activities & Excursions
Students put their new skills to practical use during training sessions and organized social activities and excursions that are offered regularly at EduKick Germany. With the combination of assigned homework, class work and the overall EduKick Germany language immersion experience, the participating players will adapt to the language and culture quicker than ever thought possible. At the end of the program, EduKick Germany academy players will have improved their German speaking skills considerably, but more importantly have also built the foundation for continued learning of the German language and culture.
A Word On Education & Time Commitments
- An average online course requires 60 – 70 hours of self-study.
- The EduKick Germany program provides 10 – 15 hours of free time per week.
- Recommended that students study no more than 4 online subjects during a 9 month academic year.
For online high school study (Distance Learning) we recommend international students who still require High School academic credit back home to consider continuing their studies with an accredited online school from their own country.
