Sports Programme

21st century Football is more competitive than ever! Individuals are stronger and better prepared than they were years ago. To be able to keep on meeting with this requirement, a 4 points approach was thought over: technical, tactical, physical and mental.
Respecting those 4 points is fundamental for personal achievement.To neglect one of those points would prevent the player from reaching full development.
