In August, 2018 Empire United hosted Real Madrid Foundation Clinics USA. Coaches arrived in Rochester NY from Madrid, Spain and ran sessions in a 5 day soccer clinic! Over the 5 days the coaches evaluated all players and awarded Empire United's 2006 boy, Jan Pawel (Jonny) Makula with a once in a life time opportunity due to his soccer ability! Jonny was 1 of 16 kids who recieved a trip to practice at the Ciudad Training Ground in Madrid, Spain which is the home of the biggest club in the world, Real Madrid!
Over the last week Jonny has not only been on the field being coached by Real Madrid Academy Coaches but has had the opportunity to take in a Real Madrid and Barcelona games. Jonny has also learned about the history of the club with tours around the field and stadium!
We are excited for Jonnys return to hear all about his experiences playing in Madrid with top level players from all over the US.
