Nachwuchsleistungszentrum v3

Centre of Excellence (CoE)

The Centre of Excellence (CoE) is located at the former professional players’ training ground in Sinsheimer Straße, Hoffenheim. With most players in this age group working to obtain academic qualifications, they can rely on us to provide organized learning assistance and exam preparation tuition in consultation with their respective schools through the “Anpfiff ins Leben” association.

Making the transition – U17 and U19

The CoE has two first-class natural grass pitches and a variety of indoor facilities, including strength-training and gym rooms, state-of-the-art physiotherapy services, and spaces for meetings, quiet study, and relaxation. All the work we do at the CoE is based on a compre-hensive educational approach.

Each of the CoE players receives individual coaching from our experts. Alongside daily team training sessions, the TSG Academy offers super-vised homework sessions, round-the-clock counselling, personalized athletics training, and sport-specific psychological monitoring. Our aim at this stage is to guide players toward the world of professional football.

A catering team working in the CoE’s onsite kitchen sources fresh, regional produce to prepare delicious, freshly-cooked meals that are scheduled to fit around the U17 and U19 training schedules. This makes it easier for our players to incorporate a performance-enhanc-ing diet into their daily routine so that they can focus on their athletic development.
