Real Madrid Foundation Football School
Weekly Soccer Development Programme; Training every Monday & Saturday!
The Real Madrid Foundation Football School brings to Singapore the technical excellence, experience and spirit of Real Madrid C.F., the greatest club in world football history.
Inspired by Real Madrid's long and illustrious history, we provide a platform for players to receive not only the best football training in Singapore but also to learn key values and develop their character to become leaders on and off the field.
Kids build aspects like coordination, speed, agility or endurance playing soccer as well as learning the importance of the way to get their objectives, learning the importance of values like teamwork, humility or self-control. Real Madrid Foundation Football School, powered by Camp Asia, applies the same soccer training methodology used in Real Madrid's training headquarters in Spain, the reigning FIFA champions! Now our Camp Asia players can truly say they train like stars. Is your child the next Ronaldo or Zidane?
Focus will be placed on building good teammates, develop risk takers, confident players and offering them the chance to play against other academies. One monthly tournament will be organized to give them the chance to experiment competitive situations with new players.
Real Madrid Foundation Football School Singapore builds on specific skills at each age:
6 through 8 years
Instilling a love of the sport from an early age, children will work on basic patterns of movement, simple dribbling, learn to strike the ball with different parts of the feet, try free kicks and simple feints against a passive opponent. The level teaches the child basic rules of the game and why it’s important to respect them.
9 through 11 years
At this level, kids learn to consolidate psycho-motor skills, enhance all-around development skills such as stamina, speed and agility, and focus on basic tactical skills such as heading the ball using different techniques, ball control on the ground and in the air and feints against an opponent.
12 through 14 years
At this level, the child enhances his / her performance by further building on stamina and endurance, learning about complex passing, mixing distances and work on rhythm and coordination in actual situations of play and different kinds of strategies, styles of play and systems.
