Edukick Story

EduKick Spain Female Football Academy Soccer Boarding School

“The Gabriela Encarnación Soccer Story”

Introducing EduKick Female Football Academy alum Gabriela Encarnación, the newly signed GRANADA CF striker is a perfect example of how female footballer’s SOCCER DREAMS COME TRUE at the EduKick Spain Female Football (Soccer) Academy. The EduKick Spain Female Football Academy is located in the COSTA DEL SOL (Benalmadena, MALAGA)!

EduKick Spain is the ORIGINAL “SPANISH SOCCER SCHOOL” – the first privately owned Football & Education Academy in Spain (since 2001). EduKick Spain’s worldwide success in developing thousands of international footballers is the result of years of experience mentoring, training, and developing their student-players with equal emphasis on their education. EduKick Spain offers personalized mentoring service and care for each of our participating female student-footballers.

We are committed to creating a nurturing, caring academy environment that is conducive to progressing the education, football development, personal self-growth, and inter-cultural competence of the female academy players that attend. EduKick philosophy is in our name: Edu (cation) Kick (a futbol).

This seaside venue in the “COSTA DEL SOL” Benalmadena (Malaga) is a paradise of sunshine, beaches, mountains, and passionate Spanish football culture. EduKick Spain Female Football (Soccer) Academy is accepting applications NOW. Gabriela and EduKick International Football Academies (EIFA), welcome all interested female footballers ages 12 to 26 to join us for one (1) to ten (10) months in the beautiful COSTA DEL SOL for football (soccer) and education at the EduKick Spain Women’s Soccer Boarding School academy venue.

Our girls’ soccer success story in Spain, Gabriela, started as an EduKick Spain Women’s Academy participant as any other girl or young lady footballer would, and she worked extremely hard, training daily at the girl’s academy until proving her commitment, character, and ability to our EduKick Spain Spanish Female Femenino Technical Coaching staff.  At that time her mentor, EduKick President, Joey Bilotta, and the academy director arranged professional Futbol Femenino (Women’s Soccer) trials with female Spanish soccer clubs, Rayo Vallecano, UD Almeria, Malaga CF, and Marbella FC.  Gabriela finally accepted an offer from the famous LA LIGA Spanish soccer club, Granada CF Femenino.

Gabriela, in her new role with EIFA as the Female Football Advisor, encourages any interested young female soccer player (and/or her parents) to contact her directly for a “first-hand” personal soccer reference and to answer any questions about the academy that player or her parents may have. Contact Gabriela at:

EduKick’s President & Founder, Joey Bilotta, now has over 37 years of professional experience working with young footballers in education, counseling, mentorship, soccer coaching, and soccer-related courses. His mission, since EduKick’s inception in 2001, is to use his extensive life experience in football (soccer), his education and motivational skills to mentor, consult and assist aspiring EduKick Academy female soccer players and their parents. He does this by establishing and then systematically working towards reaching, their personal soccer, education, wellness, and LIFE goals! Mr. Bilotta’s SOCCER LIFE COACH services are free of charge for each of the participating EduKick Academy Women Footballers. Learn more about this unique and highly effective ONLINE SOCCER CONSULTANCY & MENTORSHIP program for EduKick footballers (and their parents) at SOCCER LIFE COACH.  

Mr. Bilotta, a former professional footballer, also offers EduKick Academy players access to his affiliate soccer company BEST ATHLETES. Best Athletes is the world’s most intelligent, state-of-the-art online software platform that can significantly assist the EduKick soccer academy girls to get scouted, and for soccer coaches to become more organized and proficient in building and improving their soccer squads (through data analytics and cutting-edge video tools). 

EduKick female student-footballers that are interested in pursuing a Women’s US or Canadian College and University Soccer Programs can use the Best Athletes in-platform search tool. Our one-stop-shop search tool not only has a comprehensive listing of all of the Colleges and Universities Women’s soccer programs, including the coaches names and email addresses, as well as a program overview for each school. This allows our academy girl to easily share their recruiting profile, connect with coaches, and learn more about each prospective school.

Any interested female soccer player or soccer coach can set up their profile for FREE on the Best Athletes website, and EduKick Soccer Academy female footballers are given FULL ACCESS to the software (again, free of charge).

Our academic options include private International British or Spanish Secondary School education (grades 8-12). At the British school, courses are delivered in English. To attend the Spanish secondary school a player must have an intermediate level of Spanish proficiency, Academy players 16+ can choose the Spanish Language Study option at our affiliated Spanish language institute (MARAVILLAS) for intensive Spanish study of 20 hours per week.

The EduKick Spain Female Football Academy features daily technical soccer training under our dedicated team of Spanish UEFA licensed coaches. Players also participate in weekly strength & conditioning sessions and are inserted onto a local Spanish female football club team for additional evening training sessions, periodic tournaments, and regular match play. The participating female soccer players take periodic trips to play against professional Spanish club youth sector teams (Atletico de Madrid, Getafe, Ray Vallecano, Malaga CF, Granada CF, Marbella, etc.).

International girls or women soccer players that register for EduKick Spain’s world-famous academic year Spanish Female Football Academy course are able to apply for and attain the NIE (número de identidad de extranjero). The NIE is a tax identification number in Spain, or “Foreigner Identity Number” that actually allows for the international student-footballer to register and play for a local Spanish women’s soccer club, as any other Spanish female player would. This incredible opportunity significantly increases the development of our academy lady footballers’ by allowing them to train and play matches regularly alongside their Spanish teammates, some of the most competitive, and skilled footballers on the planet.

EduKick Spain, then, provides significantly increased opportunities for its female players to be scouted, recruited, and exposed to Spanish clubs. And, like Gabriela, for our academy’s most committed and competitive “HIGH LEVEL” players, we are able to seek out and secure professional football trials in Spain through the extensive network of Spanish LA LIGA club contacts that EduKick Spain President Joey Bilotta and his associates have acquired over the decades spent in Spain as footballers and academy directors.
