BVB International Academy Texas coaches have an incredible passion for the game of soccer and become an important part in the success of the players who represent Borussia Dortmund’s Academy.  

 Our professional coaches are supported with the club environment and work tirelessly to provide the optimum training environment for personal and team development. BVB IA Texas coaches are put through our coaching accreditation program for professional development and are verified through background checks twice per year.

Through well-prepared training programs and curriculum, players here in Texas are experiencing much of the same training philosophy and methodology as the young players at the Borussia Dortmund Academy in Germany. 

Our BVB Coaches recognize the tremendous responsibility they have for impacting the lives of our players. The responsibilities and the work ethic of our coaches are held to the highest standards anywhere in the United States.  Being a part of BVB International Academy Texas is an honor, a responsibility, a passion and Intensity each of our coaches embraces.
