Real Madrid Gives Summer School a Kick

Real Madrid’s Summer Champions Tour kicks off with soccer clinic for kids at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, Calif.

How do you get kids excited about making healthy choices?

Finish out summer school with a soccer skills clinic hosted by the Real Madrid Foundation, the social arm of champion soccer club Real Madrid.

Saturday’s clinic at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, Calif. with Real Madrid Foundation coaches was hosted for kids 8-14 from across the community who might not otherwise get these opportunities.

The clinic is part of Abbott’s ongoing partnership with Real Madrid and Real Madrid Foundation, which aims to educate, support, nourish and develop kids around the world across all geographies, cultures and backgrounds.

The event also marks the start of the club’s Summer Champions Tour in the U.S. following their LaLiga and Champions League titles. In addition to showing their skills, kids engaged in a nutrition and hydration workshop while their families participated in health education and screenings.

Because you’re never too young — or old — to understand just how much living healthy is built on good nutrition, activity and healthy choices.

The event is built on multiple collaborations, including:

The soccer clinic was also supported by the city of Stockton, University of the Pacific, the Emergency Food Bank and El Concilio, a Stockton nonprofit social services agency that works with low-income and marginalized communities, all of which also participate in the Future Well Communities program.
