SC Borea is one of the preeminent youth football clubs in the German state of Saxony. Situated in the heart of Dresden, of one of Europe’s most beautiful baroque cities. SC Borea produced alumni in all three professional German leagues (1-3 Bundesliga), including Champions League participant Tony Jantschke (Borussia Mönchengladbach).
SC Borea houses the region’s most promising talents in a boarding school, where players ages 12-19 train with professional coaches 4-6 times a week. Borea has longstanding contacts with the region’s top professional football clubs and place alumni in the region’s top schools, universities, and companies; at Borea “we believe in developing not only first class football players, but also first class people”.
This is your chance to interact in a top-class training environment and to have one of the most memorable experiences of your lifetime! Not only will you be training with the region’s top talent, but there will be plenty of opportunities to travel throughout Germany and be exposed to foreign cultures—Berlin and Prague are both a 2-hour train ride from Dresden, and some of central Europe’s must-see sites are just around the corner.
Dresden is the capital city of the German state of Saxony, and with around 550,000 inhabitants, it is the state’s second most populous city after Leipzig. It is the 12th most populous city of Germany, the fourth largest by area after Berlin, Hamburg, and Cologne, as well as the third most populous city in the area of former East Germany, after (East) Berlin and Leipzig. Dresden is contiguous with Freital, Pirna, Radebeul, Meissen and Coswig, and its urban area has around 780,000 inhabitants, making it the largest in Saxony.
According to the Hamburgische Weltwirtschaftsinstitut (HWWI) and Berenberg Bank in 2017, Dresden has the fourth best prospects for the future of all cities in Germany.

What is this program about and why is it unique?
It is a full immersion in the German (soccer) culture! Unlike any other program our players will be joining an official German team which plays in the official German youth system!
In fact, you will be surrounded by German players and coaches!
Players in our program get integrated into an existing (and proven successful) club and system, so the fees are significantly lower compared to new programs with high construction and operating costs.
The academy creates a competitive environment on and off the pitch. Players will have to compete to earn a spot in the starting 11 or game day roster. However, the academy has several teams to guarantee playing time!
This approach is the key to “grow” as a player and it’s the ideal preparation to play in a competitive environment.
Simple: Players will receive the coaching and training that has produced 25+ professional players.
