Excellent experience for the kids, they have a small taste of what real professional life. They have have the chance to be seen by important coaches and scouts. The competition is the highest level. 9 days of 2 sessions a day in the Real Madrid complex with Real Madrid coaches, and 4 competitions against high level teams. The Real Madrid coaches and directors are highly impressed with the group. The idea is to bring the guys here and help them get to the next level.Luis Mendoza
Its been great. It all soccer. We train twice a day. We are in the best soccer places in the world. I think there is a lot we can bring back to our teams back home, that’s the main thing just the culture and style of play. Its good to play international games against kids our own age because it shows how you compare to them. The facilities are unbelievable, its one of the best clubs in the world, they have amazing fields, staff and players. Its incredible to me.Paxton Pomykal
