Questions about the training offers at skills.lab Wundschuh
Can I get to know the skills.lab for free?
Yes! Every player can get to know the skills.lab Arena once as part of one of our free trial training sessions. These free trial training sessions take place regularly and are organised for children aged 7 to 11, for young people aged 12 to 14 and for adults aged 15 and over. But hurry up - the places are very much in demand.
The Skills Check is an objective performance check that is guaranteed to be fun for you. The Skills Check lasts 30 minutes per player. During these 30 minutes, your passing, dribbling and goal shooting skills as well as your overview will be playfully tested. At the end of the skills check, you will receive your individual skills.lab score with which you can objectively compare yourself with all the others in your age group. There is a Skills Check for children aged 7 to 11, a Skills Check for young people aged 12 to 14 and a Skills Check for adults aged 15 and over.
We recommend that you do a Skills Check every three to six months. This allows you to document your own development in the best possible way. With the help of your skills.lab score, you can track exactly in which areas you have improved and where your greatest potential lies.
The motto of the exclusive training is: Your game, your rules. When you book this training, the skills.lab arena is all yours. You decide how long you want to play and whether you prefer to train alone or with friends. Exclusive training for up to four people is possible. Do you have special wishes about which skills you would like to train? Tell us! Our certified coaches will put together your individual programme together with you.
How many players can play in the skills.lab Arena at the same time?
The skills.lab Arena is designed for training a maximum of four people at a time. In exclusive training, you decide yourself how many people should play at the same time per session. In open training, the number of players depends on how many people have booked the date.
For how long should I book an exclusive training?
If you want to play alone, we recommend a training duration of 30 to 60 minutes. For two to four players, a training duration of 60 to 90 minutes is recommended.
In open training, you register for one of our regular training sessions and train with other players in your age group. Children from 7 to 11 can choose from special programmes ("Goalgetter", "Technique Champion" and "Keeper Hero") with different training goals. Youngsters aged 12 to 14 can choose from the "Technique Star" and "Keeper" programmes. Adults aged 15 and over can book a varied group training for up to a maximum of three people.
What is the difference between exclusive training and open training?
In exclusive training, you have full control over your training. You decide who, how many people and what content will be trained. And all this at your personal preferred time. Open training is less expensive, but takes place on set dates and is available to up to four players of your age group.
What offers are there specifically for clubs?
If you want to train with your football club at skills.lab, you can choose from several offers. If you're looking for variety in your daily training routine, the Team Challenge is just the thing. If you want your entire team to be tested for its full leadership ability, then it's best to opt for the Team Check. We also offer special training packages for the winter months and are looking forward to a longer-term cooperation in the form of a partnership. Just ask us about it without any obligation.
Can I also organise a birthday party or a company event at the skills.lab?
No problem! You provide the good mood, we provide the sporting challenge. Depending on the number of participants, we will create your individual challenge in the skills.lab Arena. Refreshments are available in our canteen.
Yes! For the most modern football training system in the world, we have also created our own programmes especially for goalkeepers. Together with trained goalkeeper coaches, you can train specific skills for your goalkeeping game. Children and young people also have access to low-cost training programmes explicitly for goalkeepers in the open training programme.
