The teams are made up of a maximum of 12 players, with a qualified coach. We work on the fundamental contents of youth football in the different stages, where the teaching-learning model plays a fundamental role.

We carry out continuous training of our coaches, together with the collaboration of our youth football structure.


The students at the Escola train two hours a week (on one day or on two different days) and play a match on Saturday mornings. The competition system consists of 9 levels and 56 teams, where there are promotions and relegations with the aim of enhancing the level of the players-teams and reinforcing their learning.

Annually, each player will play a minimum of 27 matches at the Ciudad Deportiva, both in internal competition and one match against teams from outside.

Things to bear in mind: 

  • With payment of the fee, each player is a member of the club, and will have several tickets to watch the first team during the season..

  • Belonging to the Escola does not exclude the player from other football commitments.
