Soccer Academy: EduKick Students Enjoy Spain

EduKick MadridEach day students rise early in the university dorm rooms and prepare for the day in their spacious and homey accommodations.

After a nutritious Spanish breakfast, the high school students are taken by private bus to attend classes at EduKick Madrid Academy’s High School affiliate, Rosa Chacel.

Twice per week Spanish language immersion students start the day with a training session under the guidance of EduKick Madrid Technical director Sergio Leon.

The other three mornings are spent studying Spanish language at another EduKick Madrid Academy affiliate, the language institute called International House.

Lunch in Madrid is the heartiest meal of the day, introducing the student-players to many new foods as well as old favorites like tortillas! High school participants eat lunch at Rosa Chacel while Spanish Language immersion students eat lunch back at the University residence cafeteria.

EduKick MadridOnce the High school participants have returned to the residence after lunch, three afternoons per week are dedicated to all EduKick Madrid participants coming together for soccer technical and tactical training sessions with coach Leone.

As part of the Academy Year Long program, participants have the opportunity to try out for local Madrid Club teams. If successful, they spend two or three evenings per week training with their local squad.

On the weekends, participants take part in competitive match play with the EduKick Madrid Academy squad or their local club squad. Evenings are reserved for a very light dinner and time to call home and work on studies or spend time with new friends in the game room or watching television.
