North American talent on new blue and white paths

Since the starting signal,  as part of our cooperation with the International Soccer Academy,  numerous talents from the United States and Canada have dared to jump across the pond to join the Integrated Academy team. After the successful start, talented young footballers in this U17 selection will have the chance to take their skills to the next level for the second time since August 2023.

Talented people benefit from our academy’s know-how

The players not only benefit from the first-class training that our capital club’s young talent also enjoys. They also expand their footballing level and their personal horizons in high-level test matches. “There are a lot of talented players in North America. We are very pleased to be able to welcome some of them to Hertha BSC through our collaboration with the International Soccer Academy,” emphasizes our deputy academy director Sasan Gouhari, illustrating the advantages for both sides: “The boys can take a lot with them here and develop in the same way Show and develop a training philosophy that our eleven academy teams also enjoy!”

Experienced trainers, high-level tests

The talented boys take advantage of these opportunities. In addition to absorbing the new language and environment, they of course also benefit from the opportunities on the Olympic site and in Spreeathen: from high-class infrastructure, experienced trainers and, last but not least, from numerous tests against opponents at a good level, which have been one of the big highlights so far . So far, the talents have not only competed against youth teams from clubs such as Lech Posen or Hertha 03 Zehlendorf, but also against other teams from our academy.

Learning and improving every day in a traditional European club with the Hertha flag on their chest: the young footballers live this dream every day. Their experiences should help them, ideally one day, to leave their mark on the lawn of the Olympic Stadium. One thing is certain in any case: the new blue and white paths of the talents of our Integrated Academy Team represent an exciting, transatlantic journey that is far from over.
