Standard Training Program
Performance Training Program
There are two specific training programs at the Real Madrid Foundation Campus Experience: Standard and technical. Each program involves training schemes suited to the level and ability of the children. However, children who take part in the technical program must be affiliated to a local team.
The standard programme takes place at Valdebebas Football Centre while the technical programme is held at the Villaviciosa complex as well as at the sports facilities of the Universidad Europea de Madrid.
In both programs, the participants will learn many different techniques and tactics related to soccer including shooting, marking, ball skills, dribbling, ball handling and tackling.
The technical programme also has extra hours of football training, including classes of theory and strategy and visualisation of games.
In addition, children will take part in is a series of activities scheduled throughout the rest of the day known as the “Experience.” These endeavours can vary depending on the date and time and are organized with the intention of developing and motivating the youngsters, while ensuring that they enjoy themselves to the fullest during their stay.
Clases Ingles/Español Fundación Real Madrid
At the Real Madrid Camp participants on both the standard and technical programmes who want to improve their language skills have the chance to take an English or Spanish course, comprising 5 hours of lessons per week.
The language courses are overseen by prestigious language institutions - the English classes come under the direction of the British Council, while the Choices International is in charge of the Spanish classes.
As well as offering a wonderful international setting, with young people from more than 90 different nationalities, the camp offers, through its language study, a unique opportunity for students to practise their English or Spanish and make friends from all over the world.
Language classes at Football camp
The teachers are native speakers of the language they teach. They are qualified in language training and experienced at teaching intensive summer courses to groups of young learners in a multicultural environment.
The language Courses
The British Council and Choices International are language schools with many years’ of experience managing language courses. They employ staff dedicated to teaching languages to adults and young people.
The teachers deliver lessons based on a football theme and on the interests of the students themselves.
At the summer camp, students receive 5 English or Spanish classes per week, from Monday to Friday. The maximum number of students per class is 15 and each group comprises learners of similar ability. The language courses take place at the student residence which is the accommodation used by camp participants. The classes take place in study rooms which are fully equipped for this purpose.
The English (or Spanish) teachers use a very participative methodology which is fun and engaging for the students and gives them ample opportunity to develop their speaking skills.
The lesson plans are oriented especially to young people who love football, using their social environment as a reference point.
Examples of teaching methodologies used in the English (or Spanish) classes are: situational role plays, pair and group working, all situations designed to encourage student participation.
Agenda Real Madrid
There are two types of activities planned for the different formats of the Real Madrid summer camp in Madrid:
- Activities using the Campus Experience formula
- Sports and leisure activities
- Activities using the Campus Experience formula:
These activities may involve 60, 90 and 120-minute sessions spread across the campus training days. They may take place in the morning or afternoon, or sometimes both.
The content of the sessions will depend on the chosen camp format and which residence the students are staying in.
The “Campus Experience” sessions deal with tactics, strategies and the theoretical and technical concepts of soccer. In addition, students learn the values of hard work and camaraderie. They will also explore the roles of lifestyle, healthy eating and motivation in the life of an athlete.
