EduKick has announced another new program! This time it’s a new soccer academy opening in Germany, in 2014.
As with the other EduKick Academies around the world, EduKick Germany will focus on training international players in both excellent soccer skills and language training by UEFA licensed professional German coaches.
The new EduKick Germany student-players will be living, training in soccer and studying language at Sportschule Hennef. Hennef is also home to 5th Division German Football Club, FC HENNEF 05.
The soccer academy offers attractive services for international soccer players such as state-of-the-art training and living facilities at Sportschule Hennef, German language classes, German soccer tactics and theory lectures, individualized strength and conditioning and daily football training.
Since EduKick Germany Head Technical Football Director, Eskandar Zamani has a very good relationship with Hennef O5, EduKick Germany academy players will have the opportunity to train there alongside German players their age.
EduKick is finally returning to Germany! Coach Eskandar Zamani is a quality professional German coach and experienced mentor to young footballers. And the training and living facilities at the Sportschule Hennef are second to none.

The facility offers everything a young soccer player could need or want including updated dormitories, restaurant, snack bar, both natural and artificial turf pitches as well as a gym with artificial turf. A large gym complex is complemented by an outdoor swimming pool and a beach area.
Here are some of the Program highlights:
EduKick prioritizes learning a foreign language. Language classes will take place three times per week in the onsite classroom. Two classes will be structured teaching of the German Language and the other on soccer-specific German language learning.

Eskandar Zamani, a UEFA Licensed German Coach and the new Technical Director of Football at EduKick Germany, has already been able to connect with professional and semi-professional clubs at all levels of the German game.
