Professional Training Program

The program is based on a long-term vision of spending several years learning the language and Spanish soccer, with the goal of eventually signing a professional contract with a Spanish professional team.


Students under 16 years old will attend a public school in Cuenca and participate in the training of the lower divisions of the professional teams, while those between 17 and 22 years old will work their way up from the B team of the professional/semi-professional team to the top team, depending on their level.


It is also possible to train with a professional team or youth team in Madrid, such as AD Alcorcon, while staying in the dormitories of DS Football Academy in Madrid, not in Cuenca.


One of the advantages of staying in Madrid is that you can choose the team that suits you best, as it has the largest number of teams in Spain.

The level of professional teams is also higher than in Cuenca.

The disadvantages are that the program fees are higher than in Cuenca, tuition at private schools is more expensive, competition to become a professional is more intense, and the cost of living is higher than in Cuenca.

Cuenca is a beautiful old city and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site as the "Historic Fortified City of Cuenca. It is famous for its "suspended houses" (casas colgadas) built on the cliffs of the Huécar River. The canyons of the two rivers provide a spectacular fall foliage display, and the city has a unique combination of nature and man-made structures, although not as impressive as those in Toledo or Salamanca.

From Madrid, day trips and weekend trips are possible by train or highway. The Spanish Museum of Abstract Art and the Cathedral are also worth a visit.
