After the successful premiere season 2021/2022, the partnership with the International Soccer Academy (ISA) and the Knappenschmiede will enter the next round in the 2022/2023 season!

From August 2022 to May 2023, an American U18 team will be guests at the Knappenschmiede. This team includes 18 US talents who were selected in advance by the ISA and the scouts of the Knappenschmiede in the USA. The players between the ages of 16 and 18 stay in Germany for one season and train under professional conditions on the Schalke club premises. Two full-time trainers take care of the supervision, coordination and training sessions of the team.
