A very talented player who could've chosen to continue on the path to becoming a professional, Selina Rau decided that she wanted to rather combine playing soccer at a high level with furthering her education abroad.
In 2020, in the midst of the corona pandemic, Selina decided to pursue an athletic scholarship with Vivo 7 Sports. Her unwavering dedication and drive secured her an excellent scholarship to Tiffin University in Ohio, USA.
Despite the restrictions and stresses of training and completing her senior high school year during the pandemic, Selina showed her determination daily. Whether it was one-on-one technical training sessions with Vivo 7 Sports coaches, never missing an at-home strength and conditioning programme, or brushing up on her English language skills, Selina stayed true to her commitment. A student athlete in its truest form and a remarkable young lady both on and off the field.

https://www.instagram.com/_levi.r_/When teammates Levi Rößler and Noa Goldschmidt approached Vivo 7 Sports to assist in placing them in the USA on a soccer scholarship, little did we know that we would end up securing them each a place at Saint Thomas University in Miami, together. This is not very common, but we couldn't be more pleased for Levi and Noa that they get to experience playing high level college soccer while earning a Bachelor's Degree in Miami the Magic City.
In spite of a very stressful senior year of high school due to the pandemic, both players applied themselves diligently and finished with excellent grades. Alongside this, they continued their technical training in small groups whenever the pandemic restrictions allowed for it, and have now left their home area of Dreisamtal near Freiburg, Germany, feeling mentally and physically prepared.
We know they are going to have a great experience, and we can't wait to see them realize their football and academic dreams to the fullest in vibrant Miami.

We started working with Moritz Güttel (PTSV Jahn, Freiburg, Germany) almost a year ago, despite being in the middle of a pandemic. Moritz has all the characteristics of the ideal student-athlete: good academics; a stand-out player on and off the pitch; and importantly, the personal dedication and focus needed to embark on this journey.
A year of preparation, which included club and individual technical training, dedication to his final year of schooling, and working closely with Vivo 7 Sports through each step of the scholarship placement process, culminated in Moritz earning a scholarship to the University of Northwestern Ohio, a top-20 nationally ranked NAIA university.
