Players arrive from around the world to Madrid, Spain's Barajas International Airport and take part in one of the three-week trial program courses. The course includes accommodation and three (3) meals per day at the EduKick Madrid residence located at the University of Madrid UAM, with gym access which is fully supervised by EduKick Madrid staff one hour per day and physical conditioning sessions three times per week also supervised by EduKick Madrid technical staff.
On the soccer pitch, players receive three weeks of daily soccer training sessions with semi or professional Spanish clubs in the Madrid area including, Atlético Madrid “B”, Rayo Vallecano “B”, FC, Getafe “B”, A.D.

All participants will begin week one training with the 3rd Division Senior B Team of A.D. Colmenar. During this week the EduKick Madrid staff will evaluate each participant’s ability level and make recommendations to Atletico Madrid, Getafe and Rayo Vallecano scouts before they attend at least one of three previously scheduled friendly matches (in order to scout trial candidates) playing against semi-pro Spanish teams in the Madrid area.
EduKick Madrid will then arrange the subsequent trial matches and/or training session with local clubs appropriate to each individual’s ability or potential (as deemed by the EduKick Madrid technical futbol staff). The price for this three week pro trial course in Madrid is $3,699 USD.
