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.
Real Madrid CF was founded in 1902 by students at the Residencia de Estudiantes in Madrid. The club was originally known as Madrid Football Club.
Real Madrid was integrated into the Spanish League from day one and remains one of three clubs that have never been relegated from the top flight of Spanish football - the others being Barcelona and Athletic Club de Bilbao.
Today, Real Madrid is one of the most respected sports organisations in the world and was hailed as the best team of the 20th century by football’s world governing body FIFA. As a result of its success, the team can boast the highest number of fans in Spain, with over 30% of football enthusiasts in Spain supporting Real Madrid.
In 1929, Real Madrid were runners up in the very first Spanish League, and in 1931 they were ordered to remove the ‘Real’ part of their name by the Second Spanish Republic. They eventually regained the title 10 years later and have been known as Real Madrid ever since.
In 1947, a new stadium was built, in what was then the outskirts of the city of Madrid. The new arena was named after the elected president, Santiago Bernabéu, who came to have a strong influence over the team. It was during the long presidency of Santiago Bernabéu that Real Madrid saw some of its greatest victories. This was the time of Di Stefano (AKA “Saeta Rubia” or “Blond Arrow”) who was widely-regarded as one of the elite European players of the 1950s. With Di Stefano leading the attack, Real Madrid won a grand total of 19 titles in 10 years.
After Di Stefano came other legendary names such as Zoco, Pirri, Sanchís, Velázquez, Amancio and Gento. These players were the predecessors of a new elite group of players that would emerge known as the “Quinta de Buitre” (“Vulture’s Cohort”).
This group saw the skills of Emilio Butragueno, Miguel Pareza, Manuel Sanchís, Michel, and Martín Vázquez brought together at the same time with devastating effect. With this group Real Madrid won five consecutive league titles from the mid-80s to the start of the 90s.
A seventh European Cup success was reached with another combination of players, known as the ‘Los Galácticos’ (The Galactics) due to the millionaire price-tags and superstar status of the new signings. This era saw players such as Figo, Ronaldo, Beckham and Zidane brought together in an attempt to modernise the club and bring financial success. However, they ultimately failed to live up their huge expectations
Following this period, the club were overshadowed for a long period by arch rivals Barcelona who won numerous trophies under the guidance of Pep Guardiola. However, in 2011, Real Madrid began their return to the top with a Copa del Rey victory over their rivals. They followed up that win with a league title in 2012, a Spanish Supercup in the same year, another Copa del Rey win in 2014 and UEFA Champions League titles in 2014 and 2016. Real Madrid now hold a record 11 European Champions League titles.

- 11 European Cup/UEFA Champions League
- 2 UEFA Cups
- 2 UEFA Super Cups
- 19 Copa del Reys

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.

These sports-related activities take full advantage of the fantastic facilities on offer such as the swimming pools. The students in each group will rotate through the different activities as part of their daily schedule, giving them the opportunity to get better acquainted.
