This season will see our first ever women's team play at U16 level. As exciting as that is, we can't stop there. As part of our shaping the future motto, plans are already in place for our U16w squad for the following season.
We are therefore launching a multi-level trial process for our women's team. Young footballers born in 2009 and 2010 from Salzburg, Upper Austria, Carinthia, Tirol, Vorarlberg and Bavaria (so long as they are no more than 50 km away from the Red Bull Academy) can take part. Should you live within Austria but be more than 60 kilometres away from Salzburg, you can only join us should you swap schools in the Oberschule classes!
At the first trial session on Wednesday 13 September 2023 at 17:00 CET in the Red Bull Academy, players have the chance to claim a place in the squad.
Four steps to making the team
- The first trial event takes place on Wednesday 13 September 2023 at 17:00 CET at the Red Bull Academy. You can register for that online via the button below until Friday 1 September at the latest. You will find out a few days later via email whether you are to be invited to the trial. A doctor's certificate will be essential for anyone taking part in the trial.
- In October 2023, those who impress the most at the first trial event will be invited to an additional trial. Everyone who took part will receive either an invitation with details of the second event or a rejection.
- November/December 2023 - there will be a decision made on our squad. All the players from the second trial session will receive either an invitation with details or a rejection.
- Our U16w team for next season will be formed and school intake interviews will begin in December 2023 and January 2024.
It is the same for our girls as it is with the boys - an academic and vocational education alongside the footballing one is a key part of developing youngsters in our society. After the children have completed their Unterstufe schooling, there are cooperations with the following partner schools:
- Christian-Doppler-Gymnasium (Oberstufe: SSM Sport for Football)
- Private Fachschule für Wirtschaft und Leistungssport der AK Salzburg am BFI Salzburg (technical school leaving certificate + apprenticeship as office and sports administrator)
- Female footballers who are still in the third class of the Unterstufe level should not change schools!
- Our boarding cooperation partner is Kolpinghaus Salzburg.
- Players will find out what to bring to the trial if they are invited after registration.
