In partnership with the Spanish Embassy in Manila, the Makati Football Club brought several coaches from the Real Madrid Fundacion Clinics for one week last December 12 to 17, 2014 at the Alabang Country Club. With the support of Alaska Milk, 80 underprivileged children coming from different charitable institutions such as Gawad Kalinga and Tuloy Foundation and provinces such as Pangasinan and Camarines Sur were given the experience to be trained by 10-time Euro champ Real Madrid coaches.
Real Madrid’s football clinic is one way of developing football in the grassroots level and in encouraging children to “go out and play,” and live a healthy and active lifestyle. This gives the kids something to aspire for as the development of football starts at a very young age. It’s also great to see kids at play and having fun while being engaged in sports. Aside from clinics, Alaska has also brought football tournaments for kids of all ages.
With a grassroots program in place, there is a future in football. It also gives an opportunity for kids to appreciate the outdoors through sports while learning the work ethic and discipline required in football. This was a nice way by Alaska and Real Madrid football to inculcate the sport of football in the heart and minds of the kids and maybe, this bunch of kids can generate great football players for the country and the world.
