The clinic which was held over 3 days from November 10 to November 12, saw 280 local children and 30 local coaches train with professional coaches from Real Madrid Foundation at the FSV Arena in Bangalore.
The children were selected from the Surabhi Foundation Trust, Sumangali Seva Ashrama, Need Base India and Kasturi Trust.
Coaches from the Real Madrid Foundation imparted their world-class training techniques and methods to the local coaches.
This formula was replicated with the participating children who then had a fruitful time in an interactive training session with them.
