Sports is an integral part of SLAM International’s culture and we strive to serve as a training school for students with a talent and interest in sport. Our philosophy is to work on the individual development of each student and prepare them to be a leader of the future. Our students are thus encouraged to participate in various sports, to develop their athletic ability and foster important life skills such as resilience, leadership, discipline, teamwork and humility. All students have at their disposal exercise and sports plans that complement their regular curriculum and are given the opportunity to pursue both competitive and non-competitive sporting activities.
We have multidisciplinary coaches and sports specialists with national and international qualifications, who train students and provide them with the support to flourish in whatever sport they choose to partake in.
SLAM also develops partnerships with first class institutions (foundations, sports clubs and federations) in the sports world such as the NBA and Liverpool F.C. Students are able to interact and live with elite athletes, who through these partnerships, come to SLAM regularly to train, do their pre-season training and acclimatize before competitive periods.
Sports offered at SLAM International:
During the school year, we hold weekday and weekend football matches, which are coordinated with the academic timetable of our students. Football players at SLAM School will be able to hone their skills through regular inter-team tournaments as well as friendly matches with federated teams in the communities of Madrid and Castilla León. Students also have the opportunity to travel abroad for international tournaments.
We have qualified interim trainers and foreign coaches who visit the campus to impart their knowledge and techniques. Players are provided individual game analyses and evaluations of their technical and tactical skills. To ensure that they are in good physical condition, monthly physical tests and medical follow-ups are conducted.
What we organize:
SLAM has an impressive covered pavilion with a basketball court of official dimensions
We make the Equestrian department available to students, from which initiatives have arisen such as the creation of the National Riding School (ENE) and its group of trainers, to lead the different training itineraries in the field of equestrian sport, the Spanish Association of Equestrian Professionals (ASEPE), that has been acting as a collegiate body to regulate equestrian trades within the sports professions and the creation of a National Catalogue of Levels of Competence in Equestrian Riding, as a pedagogical and didactic tool, to help equestrians in their training.
SLAM offers a Bachelor’s degree in golf, along with other minor vocational degrees, for young people who would like to pursue this sport professionally. Our high performance golf center combines academic activity with the practice and professionalization of golf.
Within our facilities, we have an 18-hole course, a 9-hole course and a practice area (driving range). We also have a golf school and tournaments for different ages, from U13s, to U15s and U17s.
The Chair of Nautical Studies (CEN) has also proposed a training itinerary for nautical matters, which will culminate with a Bachelor’s degree in Recreational Nautical, a National Catalog of Proficiency Levels in Recreational Nautical and the proposal of the Spanish Association of Recreational Yachting Professionals, for better regulation and professionalization of recreational yachting in our country.
Students will be able to cover the theoretical-practical training stages from the last years of primary school (E.S.O) and first years of high school, joining their university education with an extensive background in navigation and all the approved official qualifications in nautical sports.
