BVB International Academy Player Pathway

By Nancy Lane, 04/16/20, 8:30AM CDT


After our first full year as the official North American partner for Borussia Dortmund Youth Academy, BVB International Academy America continues to develop our players’ exposure to the professional pathway with our real and authentic relationship with one of the premier player development clubs in the world.  From the youngest, grassroots age groups to our older regional and national competitive leagues, BVB International Academy players experience training through and with the guidelines and standards set forth by the Borussia Dortmund Academy. 

With ten current locations across North America, the International Academy is poised to offer more than 3000 players the opportunity to experience a true player pathway.  The pathway offered includes successful direction for players of all levels.  Our first of its kind College Athlete Placement (CAP) Program secures both playing and/or academic opportunities for college and university pathways for all of our players.  And for the elite players, The BVB IA Pathway includes our regional player identification program- The School of Excellence which if selected ultimately gives players the opportunity to train and be identified at the Borussia Dortmund Youth Academy.
