A surprise visit of Óliver Torres, our player formed in the Academy of the club, and the chairman Enrique Cerezo, has put an end to a fellowship week of all the teams of the Academy in Los Ángeles de San Rafael, where both the high performance and training teams (from cadets to juveniles) have concentrated.
In addition to the children of the Academy, Atlético de Madrid’s women’s team 'A' and 'B' and Atlético de Kolkata have trained during the week of August 31st to September 7th in the facilities of Segovia.
Given the uniqueness of the facilities, the days have included all kinds of activities. In addition to training with the club’s coaches and recreational and leisure activities, the young players of our Academy have received formative lectures in various fields: nutrition and preventive habits, management of social networks and coaching and values.
