Our core values
SPAIN RUSH-SPF work with high intensity and quality practices during the 1h 45min 3 times a week on the field, to improve their individual technique and skills. Each player will be strictly analyzed, so we are able to offer them the practice and exercises they need to improve their “weaknesses”.
The remaining sessions are used to focus on the group work and tactic improvements, where players will learn how to read and understand the needs of the game and to anticipate their best position. Those sessions will also focus on Individual tactics, with teaching the importance of the correct positioning on the field and the defensive and offensive tactics.
"The ball as protagonist", which is passed on the game’s reality. Everything that is taught and practiced will be with a ball and in match like situations, with the matchday routine (warm-up with physical ability and psychomotor skills). The best training methods is “learning by doing”, therefore training with the competitive feeling and testing the skills when the pressure of the opponent is high. This psychological tactic will enable the player to understand the game and move accordingly. All those skills are mainly learned through the amount of experience, and this is why SPAIN RUSH-SPF players not only train and play, but also compete on a weekly basis.
Our physiotherapists and fitness trainers work with our players at least once a week, to focus on the “Proprioception”. This practice is specifically for the joints (muscles, tendons and ligaments) and training the brain to do the correct and save movements. When the player does an exercise, there are constantly information sent to the brain about the position it is in, in combination with the correct execution and being precise in the movement. The ligaments offer resistance to anomalous movement and provide neurological feedback, where they “inform us” about the position of the joint and create a response of protection from excessive tension, to avoid possible injury.
Each player has an individual routine, yet there is a base for every single one of them. They combine 3 SPF practice sessions in addition to the SPAIN RUSH-SPF friendly matches against Spanish teams and the integration into Spanish teams (training routine and league games, +18). The number of Spanish team practices depends on the team they are in, but in general about 3 to 5 times per week, which sums us to about 14-18 hours of football a week, which guarantees the individual progress of the players.
Additionally, each student has their own school schedule included in their football schedule. This schedule consists of a 10-12 hour language program, divided into 2 whole mornings and 2 afternoons. The players are also required to go to school/high school every morning, therefore on Monday, Wednesday and Friday after their SPF practices, and every afternoon before their Spanish team practices.

Immersion in Spanish football
Depending on the analysis outcome, the players are able to try out for Spanish teams, corresponding to their skill level and their age. Yet we do guarantee each player to be part of a Spanish team, due to agreements with those teams, which state, that they take players from SPF Academy.
The coaches assign a Spanish team for the player to represent, train and play with in the League, for the entire season (18 years and older – FIFA regulation). SPF is also responsible for the football license, and all that is required to get registered.
