Berlin Training Trip for Players Born 2008 to 2000.
Dates of Berlin Trip: Arrive in Germany on July 18th (departing USA July 17th ) and returning to the USA on July 28th, 2019
Unlike so many other summer soccer trips to Europe, the goal of this Berlin trip is to create a lasting impact on the players’ development.
How to be a leader on and off the field? Learn from GFLSoccer‘s Founder and two times FIFA World Cup player Arne Friedrich, a German football legend who played 82 times for the German National Team and was the Coach/Manager of Germany U18 National Team. German-born Friedrich played for Germany in five major tournaments including the 2010 World Cup roster in South Africa in which Germany took third place.
Friedrich started every 2010 World Cup match.
He was pivotal in Germany finishing third and even scored his first goal for his country in the quarter-final against Argentina. Friedrich then came to the USA and played in the MLS for Chicago Fire in 2012 and 2013.
Now, the 40-year-old soccer star wants to give back to the next generation and help them reach their peak performance. Both Friedrich and GLF Soccer‘s CEO/Founder Eddie Loewen know that success is often based on the decisions a player makes and his or her goal setting.
