Many young people dream of being professional footballers, but only a few make it. Our commitment to education forms the cornerstone of our projects, in which we bring LALIGA's methodology and passion together with a firm commitment to the personal and academic development of youngsters.


Education as a vehicle for development

Players are the core of our project, and their comprehensive education the ultimate goal of our involvement.

Sport offers us a unique tool for instilling values and principles in young people, a vehicle through which we promote a series of competencies and socio-emotional abilities which favour their development far beyond the sporting arena, all within a multicultural setting.


Health as the foundation of our values

Today more than ever, health is a constant concern for families and crucial for players.

We look after the players with personalised and constant assistance, providing them with a medical service with full health coverage and a network of hospitals and medical centres at their disposal.


Personal and continuous attention

The players will be accompanied at all times by their tutors who will be responsible for guiding them throughout their stay.
