In International Soccer Academy of Madrid we trust
- We apply the following rules in order to help you in adapting to the new environment (new place, culture, language, people, etc):
- A person/tutor to give support and look after your needs or doubts.
- A series of activities including native boys to help promote communication and interpersonal relationship.
- Mandatory Spanish course on a weekly basis so as to help you to relate and communicate better.
In order to help improve the Academy, each week, the tutor assigned to you will have a meeting with you to talk about general aspects, to hear suggestions, complaints or see if you need something in particular.
As well as this, a monthly progress report will be mailed to parents or legal guardians via e-mail or postal address for them to see their boy's progress. This report will include progress in areas such as behaviour, Spanish language, effort, the school report card and a report from the football team.
- For your own benefit, you will be living in a safe and secure facility. Parents can give their written consent so that boys may leave the premises under their own responsibility. (This will be during the boy’s free time only.)
- At school, you will receive the help of a school coordinator/ supporter to help you with adapting from being away from home or with the challenges of being in a different country.
- During the football practices, the team coach will be responsible for you during training sessions or soccer matches.
- Before entering the program both parents and students must sign and agree to an established code of behaviour as a condition to enter our program.
We want you to feel at ease and help you make the best of the experience our program offers. Health and accident insurance will be provided from day one. There is a medical centre close to the housing facility as well as a clinic inside the school and the sports centre. In case of an emergency, one of the main hospitals is located within a few kilometers.
