Djk successful in football

Djk successful in football

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.

"After reinhard rauball’s speech, i don’t dare say anything anymore," the 62-year-old stated, when the outgoing league president had also praised him for his promotional speeches to amateur and professional officials.

"He hit the nerve today. He is professionally and characteristically convincing," rauball said on wednesday about keller, who then found the words again just in time. As an active and critical moderator, the boss of SC freiburg wants to be a part of the team after his now practically certain election to the 13. President of the german soccer federation at the bundestag on 27 february. September the association, which has been struggling for years to find its bearings, also emerged from the worst crisis in its history in terms of operations.

Heitec volleys are guests in konigs wusterhausen

The heitec volleys eltmann have twice tried their hand at the rougher clubs from friedrichshafen and frankfurt in the federal volleyball league and have tested their suitability for the first division.

But the first game in the brose arena in bamberg was lost 1:3. Now the eltmanners are guests of the netzhoppers konigs-wusterhausen on wednesday evening at 7 p.M.

Since 2006 in the volleyball bundesliga

With the knowledge gained, the promoted team enters brandenburg to face an equal opponent. "The opponent is known for its home strength", female heitec manager rolf werner. The netzhoppers konigs wusterhausen have been a permanent fixture in the first division since 2006. What makes the club stand out is its ability to stand up to the top teams in the league time and again with a manageable budget. A large part of this is due to head coach mirko culic.

The yugoslavian-born coach always manages to bring together many young players. He will be assisted by well-known former german national team players who will be playing for the netzhoppers, mainly because of their close proximity to berlin. Since 2018, 33-year-old world championship bronze medalist dirk westphal has been supporting the team from konigs wustershausen in the eagle position. The use of middle blocker uchenna ofoha, however, is still uncertain. The 25-year-old is injured in the hand. He told me he wants to play. How well he can really do, we will see", culic is quoted on the club’s own website.

But we have to stay on the ground."

Led by captain heiko schaffartzik (22 points), the german basketball team fought its way back from a 16-point deficit, but in the end could not keep up with the cool eastern europeans.
