The Honor of Representing the Brand
While it is an honor to represent Borussia Dortmund here in America, it is also a responsibility. We consider it our mission to:
- Instill confidence and respect within every player; and be unafraid to ask for it.
- Build the next great generation of young men and women on and off the field through inspiration, grit and determination; and be unafraid to demand it.
We consider it essential that:
- Every player understands what it is to be a person of character; and be unafraid to show it.
- Every player recognizes the importance of intensity in all that we do; and be unafraid to live it.
Our traditions that set the stage for the culture within our club are centered around respect.
- The “Last hand off the field,” – The applause to the parents at the end of every game
- Respect of the referees- After every game, a sign of respect for the referee is required
- Handshake- Before and after every practice, scrimmage or game- Shake the coach’s hand
- Team Unity- The cheer or chant before the game- Uniting the players in heart and vision before every game
