The programme has more than 350 beneficiaries and is run in collaboration with the Foundation for Youth Welfare.
Following a season with a number of interruptions due to the pandemic, the socio-sports school run by the Real Madrid Foundation in Jinzhai (Anhui province, China) in collaboration with the Foundation for Youth Welfare has resumed its in-person activity. For this purpose, the club’s Foundation has provided virtual training sessions for the coaches at the socio-sports school.
The school is located in the Jinzhai primary and secondary school and serves as a pioneering project for the inclusion of football in the educational syllabus. Over 300 pupils from the centre participate as beneficiaries of the school as part of the physical education curriculum. Additionally, 60 pupils from 2nd, 3rd and 7th grades also participate in the programme as an extracurricular activity. The school promotes the pupils' all-round development and the acquisition of attitudes and behaviours related to values like respect and teamwork. The coaches-educators actively engaged in the virtual sessions.
Values and initiation in sport
The online course will help them in their educational activities in football using values and, more specifically, in attaining the objective of assimilating the principles of the comprehensive methodology in the initiation of sport. This time, the Training Department highlighted the principles of coaching to ensure that playing and decision-making from the students are central to the teaching-learning process. Similarly, during the training, the assimilation of the previous sessions by the coaches and their ability to successfully transfer the methodology, principles and values of the Real Madrid Foundation to the beneficiaries is also assessed.
The training programme also enables strategies for practical training sessions, teaching skills and new ways of coaching football in the aftermath of the inactivity of the pandemic to be shared.
