Unforgettable autumn holiday experience at the AGRAVIS football camp
In the first week of the autumn holidays the AGRAVIS football camp was up and running at SC Preußen Münster. The camps are once again supported by AGRAVIS Raiffeisen AG – the jersey sponsor for the SC Preußen 06 e.V. Münster youth teams.

On Monday morning 110 children from Münster and the surrounding area made their way to Hammer Straße and were looking forward to four days of non-stop black, white and green football. The ball decided play for four days and the kids put everything else to the back of their minds. With the Preußen stadium towering above, the children ran about the Astroturf under the leadership of licensed SCP coaches and the motto "train like the professionals".
The participants stepped onto the main stand with their eyes lit up on the first day. Divided into different national teams, the groups each completed their first training session with a coach. There was a special focus on basic technical exercises such as dribbling, taking on the ball and shooting goals. A meal fit for footballers served up enough refreshment at lunchtime to have new energy for the next session in the afternoon.
The change of coach after each session gave the young football players different exercises so that different focuses were addressed. Little competitions in-between, such as the "king of penalties", relaxed the mood every now and again but also made the young footballers want to succeed.
On Wednesday there were several surprises awaiting the camp participants: the under 19s team played in the morning in the local Preußenstadion, which unfortunately lost 0:1 to their league competitors TSG Sprockhövel despite loud support from the enthusiastic kids. But for many of them it was still something special to see a live youth Bundesliga game in the stadium. The big highlight was to follow after a short training session and lunch. Benjamin Schwarz and Felix Müller had made their way to the main stand. The kids were able to ask questions to the professional players and collect an autograph.
The "Preußen World Cup" was to be the big finale to the camp. 16 national teams played the group phases on Thursday morning before the knockout phase started in the afternoon. The improved and new techniques they had learned over the past days could be presented and all of the players were very determined. The winner's ceremonies for the various competitions on the previous days and, of course, the crowning of the world champion rounded everything off. Some eventful days came to a great end with an exciting final. The coaches are looking forward to the next camp and hope to see lots of the enthusiastic faces again soon. The next AGRAVIS-Preußencamp in Greven will take place in the coming week and there are still places available. Anyone who wants to train like a professional can go to and quickly register.
