The DFB-JUNIOR-COACH is an important pillar within the DFB qualification offensive and serves as an introduction to licensed coaching. The program addresses the major football challenges, such as demographic change, the expansion of schooling and the decline in volunteer work. The objectives of the program are thus both the securing of junior trainers in Germany and the promotion of honorary posts.
