Timon Kalpaxis Director


The mission of Blau Weiss Gottschee's Zone 1 program is to prioritize and enhance players' dribbling skills from a young age. The program aims to develop confident and comfortable players in possession of the ball. It places a strong emphasis on individual skill development and cultivates players who can take on opponents with technical proficiency.

Through dedicated training and a nurturing environment, the Zone 1 program aims to instill a love for the game and provide players with the necessary dribbling skills to excel in soccer. The program sets a foundation for players to develop strong technical abilities, creative decision-making, and the ability to maintain possession under pressure.

By focusing on dribbling as the central element, the program aims to produce well-rounded players who can make a positive impact on the BWG Academy teams as they grow older.
