The All Blacks have broken all expectations. 24 hours after opening the registration for the All Blacks Clinic in Madrid, the 100 places available for the event to be organized by the New Zealand rugby federation (NZR), together with Kiwi House, have been sold out. Exorbitant numbers of boys and girls aged from 14 to 18 have collapsed the website and social networks of Kiwi House (www.kiwihouse.es) to complete their registration on what will be the first All Blacks clinic in Europe in history.
The influx has surpassedall forecasts in a clinic that will have young people from France, England, Germany, Italy and all corners of Spain attend the clinic. 100 players will enjoy, from August 26th to September 1st at the facilities of the Francisco de Vitoria University in Madrid, the experience of training under the methodology of the best rugby team in the world, the New Zealand All Blacks.
The clinic will feature two former All Blacks and renowned coaches from the NZR’s technical structure, including Peter Harold, director of player development at NZR, and Wayne Marsters, director of regional development at NZR. This elite technical group will be reinforced by the best coaches and players in Spain. Coaches like the current trainer of Sanitas Alcobendas, José Ignacio Inchausti, the coach and physical trainer of the Spanish team Mar Alvarez, the coach of SilverStorm El Salvador, Juan Carlos Pérez, and the New Zealander and Spanish international player Brad Linklater.
Participants will enjoy a personalized programthat will have individual assessment tests to subsequently integrate into work dynamics in areas such as individual skills, team roles, initiation in video analysis, goal setting, mental preparation, leadership potential, initiation in nutrition, prevention and treatment of injuries … In the coming days Kiwi House will make public the names of the two All Black players who will participate in the clinic and some of the surprises that will be included in the program of activities on campus, with familiar faces from rugby and other celebrities from Spain. The members of New Zealand Rugby want to thank the Spanish and European public for their spectacular reception that confirms, as it happened in 2017 during the visit of the All Blacks to collect the Princess of Asturias award for sport, the love that Spain shows for its selection and its players. Thanks Spain!
