TRAINING

Skill level: Advanced

Other soccer education features: Audiovisual training

Students per training group: 12 – 14 students

Training language: Spanish (coaches speak basic English)

Training intensity: 5/5

The Barcelona High-performance Academy organizes their Winter Holiday Soccer Camps into two different programs to accommodate the wide range of ages they accept.

The High-performance program is for older advanced soccer players who have more experience, game intelligence, and physical capabilities. Participants in the high-performance program work on improving their game intelligence, tactical skills, and their speed of play. Coaches do this by teaching players how to react quickly and intelligently in different game situations.

The Full-training program is for younger advanced soccer players with less experience and less game intelligence. Coaches work with the athletes to begin developing this intelligence so they can start making smart decisions on the field. They do this through video analysis sessions and didactic matches.

Both programs do include aspects of physical conditioning as well as technical training modified for different ages.

The academy prides themselves on their personalized approach to learning. They work with each player individually to recognize their strengths and weaknesses so they can set specific, achievable goals for them. This philosophy and methodology is also present in their Winter Holiday Soccer Camps.

TRAINING FACILITIES

Training surface: Natural and artificial turf

Additional training facilities: Gym, swimming pool

Quality of training facilities: 3/5

Participants in the Winter Holiday Soccer Camp attend their training sessions on the academy’s own training grounds which features several artificial soccer fields and one natural turf field. Training facilities also include a gym and a swimming pool which coaches use for additional off-field training.

“We only recommend this camp for participants who are used to intensive training for at least three days a week. At the Barcelona High-performance Winter Holiday Soccer Camp, participants train intensely for many hours a day. If you haven’t been training much or are suffering from an injury, this camp is not the right option for you. ” – ERTHEO

During their free time, participants are welcome to enjoy the many common areas in the residence including the lounge, a game room, a TV room, and a heated swimming pool. The residence also has free Wi-Fi for the participants so they can contact their families during free time.

Participants also enjoy a quality breakfast at the residence dining hall and have access to the residence vending machines for snacks. The rest of the meals are served at the academy closer to the training facilities.

“The residence is a comfortable, high-quality residence with excellent common areas for the participants to enjoy their free time. That being said, the Àgora residence is an external residence for university students as well, which means participants can enter and exit as they please. Please contact Ertheo for more information.” – ERTHEO

SAFETY

The camp takes place at the Barcelona High-performance Academy campus in the city of Barcelona, Spain. For the participants’ safety and health, academy staff includes physiotherapists, physical trainers, nutritionists, and sports psychologist.

Spain is considered a safe country, ranked 17 out of 162 on Safe Around’s Country Safety Index. That being said, Barcelona, is one of the largest, most populated cities in Spain which means higher petty crime like theft and pickpocketing. So, while the camp itself is safe, we don’t recommend participants to leave campus and explore the city by themselves. For more information about safety and security at the academy, please contact Ertheo.
