Berlin Football Academy Combine: Day 1 Recap

 

The Footy Narrative team was on ground to witness day 1 of the Berlin Football Academy's first ever university/college combine on Saturday April 21st. We briefly got a chance to witness the academy follow through on its mission to provide players with an opportunity to play soccer at the highest level in a safe, respectful and supportive environment.

The combine, which was hosted in collaboration with Next Level U Sports, was split into two days for boys and girls. We watched coaches give a quick intro before putting the boys through their paces.
