New course living like an ADO pro!

In September 2022 ADO Den Haag started the “Live like an ADO-Prof!” programme with 180 participants spread over eight different locations in The Hague. After approval from the physiotherapist following the fitness test, the participants travelled to the Bingoal Stadium a week later with the player bus of transport partner Van Heugten Tours to sign their first contract. After this formal moment, all participants received a goodie bag with their own training clothes from ADO Den Haag. It seems like an eternity ago considering the steps the participants have made in their development.

Over the past few weeks, all participants have had training sessions focusing on the themes of Health, Acceptance and Social Media. During the Health theme training, the trainers’ focus was on healthy eating and what constitutes a healthy lifestyle. How does a professional footballer deal with social media? With this question, ADO Den Haag press chief Rokus opened each workshop via a video clip. During this workshop, participants worked on various assignments and great discussions arose with the aim of highlighting the risks of using social media.

Finally, the participants worked on the theme of Acceptance. They learned that everyone is different, and therefore everyone should be treated equally. The trainers emphasised norms, values and respectful manners applicable to everyone with the power of ADO Den Haag as a unifying factor!
