Accommodations

To further enhance the experience for the players, we will be staying at hotels located at a quality hotel in Goch, and travel a short distance to some well-known Bundesliga clubs. We will forward to parents the name, address and telephone number of our hotel prior to the trip.

Staff

Our Next Gen delegation will include Next Gen Development Directors and special guest international coaches.

Meals

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner will be provided.

Parental Contact

In order to better develop the self-responsibility and maturity of the players, this trip will be for players only. Parents are welcome to travel to watch the matches but must secure separate ground/air transport as well as separate lodging.  This is done because we are working to better prepare players for potential future U.S. National Team Programs and Professional Club travel.

Players are permitted to travel with cell phones and will be asked to contact parents on a regular basis once we land in Germany and continually until arriving back in the U.S.

Contact Information (Emergencies only)
