What is the Madrid Academy?
The Madrid Academy is the developmental bridge between recreational soccer and competitive soccer. Our primary focus is individual player development with an emphasis not only on the technical skills, but also the knowledge of the game. The goal of the program is to develop a deep-rooted love for the game, as well as a basic understanding of the fundamentals necessary for a player to play soccer competently. The Academy builds upon earlier sessions and is designed to benefit both returning Academy players as well as new players.
The Madrid Academy follows a training curriculum that is innovative, challenging, and FUN. The unique structure of the Academy and the distinctive nature of the curriculum is conducive to optimum player development. The objective of the curriculum is to develop each of the four components of a player: Technical, Tactical, Physical, and Psychological in a progressive and age appropriate manner.
Who Should Attend?
The Madrid Academy is open to any player in the U8 – U14 age divisions who love soccer, have the desire and commitment to train and who are ready for the additional challenges the Academy presents. Your participation on an academy team does not commit you to the Madrid Premier Soccer Club, it is merely a great development soccer program that will allow your child to maximize their potential and enjoy the game of soccer to the greatest of their abilities.
