After more than 18 months in which clinics barely took place in Madrid due to the pandemic, the first group of players has arrived at Real Madrid City from Japan to participate in the technical development clinic run by the Real Madrid Foundation. The group consisted of more than fifty children, who traveled after restrictions between Spain and Japan were lifted. Together with Wakatake, the players, ages 11 to 15, were the first to take advantage of the revitalized clinic schedule for the 2021/22 season.
Technical development clinics allow the Foundation to open its doors to children’s football teams from all over the world. It offers elite level training approved by the Real Madrid Academy, which is complemented by the methodology of the Foundations for Education in Values, organized at Real Madrid City. They provide intensive training based on an assessment of each player and group. The improvement of technical and tactical elements through specific tasks or skills, alongside the dynamics of each team, is accompanied by education in the values ââof respect, motivation, teamwork, healthy habits, self-esteem, responsible autonomy, equality and solidarity.
During this season, the hope is that the pitches at Real Madrid City will once again welcome teams of children from abroad as they participate in the clinics program, interrupted by travel restrictions imposed in light of the pandemic. During its last full season, the Foundation’s clinics and campus carried out the project in the city of Real Madrid for teams from 25 different countries, giving more than 4,500 young people a unique experience.
