PUNTA CANA, Dominican Republic (July 7, 2016) — Barceló Bávaro Beach Resort, a multi-resort all-inclusive complex, has announced their partnership with the Real Madrid Foundation in an effort to inspire and encourage an active lifestyle at a young age by developing skills in a unique and exciting environment. Soccer professionals from the Real Madrid Foundation (RMF) will train boys and girls ranging from ages five to 17 during three separate five-day clinics. All proceeds from the clinics will go to the Real Madrid Foundation to help underprivileged children. The first clinic begins the week of August 22.
The partnership is the first of its kind and is the perfect soccer camp getaway for both athletes and their families. RMF clinics are split into different groups by age and each session is an hour and 45 minutes per day. These short sessions give players quality time with their families, new friends and an opportunity to explore the many amenities Barceló Bávaro Beach Resort has to offer. Along with its onsite professional soccer field, the complex boasts a PGA-rated 18-hole golf course, seven tennis courts, two multi-sports courts, two basketball courts, a semi-professional baseball field and a stadium-style sports theater for optimal game viewing – all on property, making the property an ideal choice for Real Madrid Foundation’s clinics.
“We are honored to partner with such a prestigious and world-renowned team,” said Giovanni Sbrogio, director of sales & marketing of Barceló Bávaro Beach Resort. “We highly value active recreation and this partnership is a perfect kick-off to our annual Sports Week, held this year from September 11 to 18.”
Children participating in these clinics are guaranteed a top-notch learning experience. All training conducted at RMF clinics matches the Real Madrid C.F. style of playing, dubbed the “Real Way.” RMF coaches have directly trained Real Madrid C.F. youth teams. The coaches’ main goals for the players are to:
- Improve soccer skills through advanced individual technical and tactical training.
- Encourage the sport’s inherent values through teambuilding, team tactics and problem solving on the field.
- Apply specific skills taught each day through competitive and real scenarios.
- To facilitate overall development and noticeable improvement through hands-on individual assessment and championship games at the end of the week.
