To Europe for
the ELite Few
In THE MEDIA
The Talentprojekt model was conceived in 2010 with the intention of bringing young American soccer talents with high potential to Germany to develop within its unequivocally world-class youth development system.
The program set out to prove that American athletes with a high soccer IQ and a high level skill set, an adaptable character and willingness to work hard and learn, could close the gap on their European counterparts when given the same advantages.
The first groups who traveled abroad were made up of no more than five players during a ten day period.
Playing with the Talentprojekt last year helped me develop as both a player and a person. Living in another country taught me many important life skills, while also learning a new culture and language. I grew as a player by experiencing both a professional training environment with coaches from around the world and high-level competition against top youth academies. I am very thankful for the opportunity to play at Talentprojekt, for all the coaches, and the team.
