Large pitch (U19 to U14)
Invitations for a trial on the large pitch are only issued in isolated cases, for example in the case of a position-specific need and special sporting ability. A player is considered to have special sporting ability if he/she is playing in a higher league, is taking part in selection measures or has been assessed by our scouts/coaches as having above-average talent.
Small pitch (U13 to U8)
In addition to the opportunity to put themselves forward for trial training through competitive performances, talented young footballers also have the opportunity to take part in open playing assesments at the junior training centre (e.g. talent days).
The Union Talent Days (U13 to U10) as well as other playing trials (U9/U8) take place twice a year (autumn and spring). Registration for these can be made via the contact form and is only possible once the respective dates have been fixed. The exact dates will be published on this page in good time.
Important! By registering, players undertake to inform their current club of their participation. This is a prerequisite for registration. Please direct enquiries about additional ages by e-mail to our youth scouting department.
Moreover we ask player from outside of Germany to refrain from applying at our scouting days. A transfer from foreign countries in our academy is only possible under special conditions. For a case-by-case assessement please send us an e-mail.
