4 Report 5 T REAL MADRID FOUNDATION REAL MADRID FOUNDATION he Real Madrid Foundation’s so- cial sports schools in Spain, 42 for football and 27 for basketball, started this season at 80% of their normal activity. More than 5,000 boys and girls five to 17 years old attend them in 11 autonomous communities. The full and partial scholarship program continues this year for 70% of the participants in partnership with institutions such as Endesa and the La Caixa Foundation. The more than 200 coaches trained in the Foundation’s specific methodology have received training on the health protocol to apply during the entire season due to the pandemic. The new Sport&Values Academy will allow outside coaches to train in the Foundation’s specific methodology Por una educación REAL: valores y deporte (For a REAL Education: Values and Sports), based on the Entrenando fútbol, enseñando valores (Training Football, Teaching Values); Iniciación al valorcesto (Introduction to Valusketball), Fútbol y valorcesto inclusivos (In- clusive Football and Valusketball), and Competir para compartir... valores (Competing to Share... Values) manuals. One new aspect is that if at any point dur- ing our current health emergency the in-person practices cannot be held, beneficiaries can enjoy online sessions to keep safely practicing.
