In men’s soccer it runs this season surprisingly successful for the DJK stadelschwarzach. The fubball team won the fall championship in the schweinfurt 4 A-class, reported chairman hermann lorey at the annual general meeting. The club is also particularly pleased that there is once again a second men’s soccer team. Both teams had over 40 players in the first half of the season.
Problems with the next generation
However, lorey also addressed problems in recruiting new talent. Especially in youth soccer, due to the low birth rate, ever larger catchment areas are needed to field a team. In youth U19, for example, the players come from practically the entire municipality of prichsenstadt, and players are also needed from lulsfeld and frankenwinheim. Also in the former flagship, the basketball ladies and girls, the DJK needs absolutely new blood.
The club’s sporting prerequisites are solid: the DJK, which currently has just under 400 members, has many well-trained instructors in sports ranging from soccer, basketball, fistball and guard dance to children’s gymnastics and the gymnastics group that has been in existence for 40 years. Courses in back school, zandunga and yoga round off the range of activities on offer.
Two new arbitrators
The chairman was pleased about two new soccer referees, jonas kleedorfer and marco diroll, who passed their examinations. With regard to the sports center and sports grounds, special mention was made of michael ebert, who spends a large part of his free time maintaining the facilities. In the coming months, the bar in the basement of the sports center will be completely renovated.
