Real Valladolid Youth Development System
Real Valladolid Academy
If Real Valladolid has been characterized by something throughout its history, it is for having been a “producer” Club of good footballers, forged in its lower categories, in its quarry, some of them international with Spain.
The philosophy of Real Valladolid is to go deeper every day in this line of work with the youth of the lower categories of Real Valladolid.
Undoubtedly, among the material resources that Real Valladolid has to support the work of the quarry, the Real Valladolid Residence for Young Players stands out above all, located in the residential area of Parquesol (Calle Padre Llanos, 77) , one of the most modern neighborhoods, with the best facilities and the highest quality of life in Valladolid. Its location is ideal for young players because a few meters away are modern public secondary schools, the Club’s training fields (Annex Fields, with one field of natural grass and two of artificial grass) and a civic center of the Hon. Valladolid City Council.
Inaugurated on June 22, 1999, the Real Valladolid Residence for Young Players (located at Calle Padre Llanos, 77. 47014 Valladolid) is one of the best facilities for young soccer players in Spain and Europe. Its management implies a great human and economic effort for the Real Valladolid Foundation, which tries to offer young people between 14 and 17 years of age the best material and human means to develop as athletes and as people, because when a young person becomes the family of the Residence, the Real Valladolid Foundation acquires with their parents the commitment to protect their physical and educational growth.
Living together in the Young Players’ Residence implies assuming a commitment to values such as companionship, respect, education, rules of coexistence, care of space and objects, cleanliness, punctuality, healthy habits, etc.
When parents decide to entrust the Real Valladolid Young Players’ Residence with the education and care of a child who is part of the lower categories of the Club, there are several factors that lead them to make that important decision:
- Scholarships from the Real Valladolid Foundation that include, in addition to the accommodation and maintenance of the young person, the educational expenses of the young person.
- Short distances to both the educational centers and the sports facilities of the entity.
- Monitoring of the academic and psychological training of the adolescent with the support of a team of private teachers.
- Extreme quality in food, cleanliness and order.
- Rules of coexistence appropriate to the formation of the adolescent.
- Commitment of the management of the center in the education of the young.
