As with all sports, there are certain soccer clubs that just conjure up magical images of success, drama, big games, and the world's greatest players. Clubs such as AC Milan, Juventus, Bayern Munich, Manchester United, Liverpool, Ajax of Amsterdam, FC Barcelona, and Real Madrid. Clubs that are steeped in tradition. They are the at the absolute pinnacle of the game and each one has a special aura about them. Even their kits are stuff of legend! In a few weeks time, barring any sensational upsets in the 2nd leg of their semi-finals, Ajax will play Manchester United in the final of the Europa League, and Juventus will face off against Real Madrid in the Champions League final.
Madrid are also the current holders of the Champions League trophy, and have won it an unprecedented 11 times. They have also won La Liga 32 times, the Spanish Cup 19 times, and were voted by FIFA the best club in the world for the last century. They have always had legendary players: Di Stefano, Butrageno, Zidane, and Cristiano Ronaldo to name a few.
It is almost surreal to say this but Real Madrid Are COMING TO LANCASTER COUNTY this summer in the form of a week long clinic with two of their top Youth Academy coaches. Penn Legacy have been chosen as the host club and we are SO excited to offer this opportunity to our players, and indeed all local soccer players. The attending players will be taught in the ways of their young counterparts in the famed Real Madrid Youth Academy, and our Penn Legacy coaches will also receive instruction in their youth coaching methodologies.
All in all, it should be a fantastic week and I really cannot emphasize enough how unique an opportunity this is. I have been told that the experience is very different to most summer soccer camps in that they (Real Madrid's) have a multi-faceted approach to teaching the game that really resonates with young players and allows for an incredibly fulfilling week. Rossi and myself will be on-hand every day to aid and assist the coaches from Madrid, as well as many of our own PL coaches, so I can promise the excitement is building already!
Reserve your spot as soon as possible!
This program offers a once in a lifetime experience to be coached for a week by the youth coaches of one of the world's greatest professional soccer clubs. Real Madrid Foundation will be running a clinic at the Penn Legacy soccer fields in conjunction with Penn Legacy Football Club, and you will enjoy a week of intense training with world class coaches. Open to ALL boys and girls ages 8-17.
All campers will get to go through training every day with Real Madrid Foundation coaches, while also receiving a training kit and signed diploma from Real Madrid Foundation upon completion of the clinic.
