The club solution digitally connects 15 teams in the Youth Academy
KSV Hessen Kassel is a traditional club that has been the flagship of the North Hesse region in Germany for over 70 years. By working with coachbetter, the club combines tradition and innovation and continues to focus on the development of its young talent with a robust Youth Academy concept, with the digitalization playing a key role.
The club solution from coachbetter enables the KSV to digitally connect its 15 junior teams with one software. Within only two weeks, all teams, coaches, and players were recorded in the platform and all those responsible were onboarded so that the platform could be directly used and add value.
The demands on a digital solution for the Youth Academy were high. In addition to internal networking, the software should make everyday life easier for the many voluntary and part-time coaches. The tasks of a coach are varied and complex, especially in the amateur field there is little time left to focus on the most important thing, the players. The Youth Academy has solved this problem with a flexible and user-friendly club solution.
Historic success with promotion to the U19-Bundesliga
After decades of sporting and economic ups and downs, the euphoria in and around the club is unbroken. The youth academy concept and constant commitment of all those involved under the direction of Claus Schäfer, a veteran of the KSV, was crowned with the promotion to the U19-Bundesliga. For the first time in the club's history, the young lions will play against the big names in German football.
The sympathetic coach of the U19-Bundesliga team with ambitious season goals is Alfons Noja. The full-time car salesman is known in the region for coaching and developing young players. The coachbetter team visited Alfons and attended a training session with focus on switching play during the preparation for the season. Alfons also told us how he got into coaching and how he personally uses coachbetter. Check out the full video on our blog.
