“We want to welcome everyone including parents or coaches who can organize and coach 3 V 3 teams,” said Schulz Academy owner Barbara Schulz. “As part of Josef’s legacy, we’re also looking to expand the Schulz Academy residency program for boys and girls.”
Dr. Schulz, the former coach of soccer standout Josmer (Jozy) Altidore was awarded “National Coach of the Year” by the United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA) in 2012.
“Schulz Academy wants to prepare players who are High School or college students for successful tryouts in Europe and to sign professional contracts at soccer leagues all over the world,” Barbara Schulz added.
Altidore, a striker on the United States men’s national soccer team, was also one of the top goal scorers as a forward for Dutch club AZ Alkmaar, where he scored 39 goals in 67 appearances before moving to English Premier League side Sunderland. Dr. Schulz coached Altidore from the young age of 8 years old until the young soccer phenom’s professional debut with the MLS at the age of 16.
