Once the ability to train and play at the highest level in Europe through the International Soccer Academy — FC Schalke 04 Integrated Academy became an option for youth soccer player X Hafer, he committed within seconds. Hafer felt that Germany was the best option for player development and provides the ability to be scouted at the highest level.

X Hafer Blog - Week 3

My 3rd week within the Schalke04 integrated soccer program was fantastic. the coaches in Germany are much more knowledgeable about fussball compared to back at home in the USA and have taught me already so much about the game. In my free time this week, I spent it mostly stretching and doing schoolwork however, I did have some fun events with my teammate — like movie night, walking around my new hometown of Gelsenkirchen, and watching other Schalke 04 matches. Overall, it was a great, and productive week.
