What is the schedule for the Camp?
The Real Madrid Foundation Camp will run 5 days from 8 AM until 1PM everyday. Final ceremony is usually on the last day of the Camp, around 12 noon.
My child does not play actively for any particular club. Can they still take part?
Of course. If your child is keen to train at a high level for 5 days, then he or she is welcome to join the camps.
My Child Is A Goalkeeper. Can He/She Join The Camp?
Yes, goalkeepers are welcome to join the Camps.
The Real Madrid philosophy specific to goalkeepers is centered on using them as a “sweeper” at times (last defender), where the goalkeeper needs to be comfortable not only in his or her own space (the goal) but also making decisions and helping the team as a “reference” to reset an attacking possession or build up from the goal kick.
They will go through a series of drills and exercises specific to their position and also play in scrimmages or games. Goalkeepers will actively participate in all the exercises.
What languages are spoken at the Camp?
English and Spanish.
Do players need medical insurance?
All players must have their own medical coverage.
Do you offer accommodations?
Accommodation is not included, but you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about hotels that we may have partnerships with.
