Basic course “Football Technique Training” registration is open!!

Football Technique Training with WFA Expert – Marcel Lucassen

About 10 years ago a revolutionary change took place within German youth football eventually guided by Technical Director Matthias Sammer. The German FA (DFB) decided to no longer scout and train the traditional strong and fit players but to start developing modern creative players. TD Sammer appointed Dutch football technique coach Marcel Lucassen to work with the likes of Ozil, Khedira, Marin and Gotze developing an exciting new generation of extremely skilful German stars. In the 1-day course ‘Football Technique Training‘ Marcel will demonstrate his technical periodisation approach.

This seminar will be open to the all people who would like to participate. But unfortunately it has limit of capacity, so we recommend to resister as soon as possible.

We’re very looking forward to hearing from you all.
