The FC Waldsee soccer adventure program is open to villagers ages 10-18 who enroll in our regular two-week summer sessions; when they arrive at Waldsee they can choose the soccer adventure option. Those who are just starting out with German will focus on their soccer skills as they begin exploring the German language and the role of soccer in Germany and Europe. Villagers with more German knowledge will have the opportunity to apply and perfect their German skills on the soccer field.
