The BVB Evonik Football Academy uses coachbetter for digital coaching education and development. The collaboration creates the BVB eAcademy, an individually adapted platform from coachbetter that is run as a private label.
BVB Evonik Football Academy - Inspiring children around the world
The BVB Evonik Football Academy offers thousands of children the opportunity to experience the BVB philosophy firsthand, regionally in Dortmund, but also nationally and internationally through partner clubs. It is a matter close to the club’s heart to inspire every child and young person in the Dortmund area and around the world for BVB. In addition to sporting success, the personal development of each individual child is a cornerstone of the academy. The aim is to realize the full potential of each player on and off the pitch.
BVB authenticity and the highest quality abroad
Just like in Dortmund , coaches who are licensed and educated by BVB at the numerous partner clubs abroad ensure that BVB football is embodied authentically and with the highest quality. The coaches not only wear the BVB logo on their chests, but they also live the BVB philosophy and represent BVB's values with and in front of the players and their parents.To meet these high standards and to educate coaches accordingly, BVB sometimes employs its own coaches at the respective partner clubs. They come from Dortmund and live locally. In addition, delegations from Dortmund travel around the world to educate coaches at all partner clubs and to train children themselves.
Digital and sustainable rethinking through the BVB eAcademy
The search for sustainable, digital, and environmentally friendly solutions for the coaches' education and player’s development has long been a topic at the BVB Evonik Football Academy. This process was accelerated by the Covid-19 pandemic. The requirement for the digital solution was to transfer the knowledge and philosophy of BVB to partner clubs around the world, despite thousands of kilometers from the SIGNAL IDUNA PARK, and to educate and support the coaches as best as possible without having to be physically on site.
coachbetter is the suitable solution. The numerous functions of the platform and the outstanding user-friendliness exactly match the needs of BVB. As a result, through an intensive, six-month project between coachbetter and the BVB Evonik Football Academy, the BVB eAcademy was created. The individually adapted platform from coachbetter which was set up according to the needs of BVB, is now run as private label "BVB eAcademy".
The platform enables an overview of all training sessions and activities carried out by the partner clubs for robust analysis.
