Overview

  • Location:Barcelona, Spain
  • Ages and genders:14 - 21 years old (girls ONLY)
  • Levels:Advanced/Elite

The Barcelona High-performance Academy has officially opened a summer soccer camp exclusively for girls. The girls program features all of the same impressive benefits as the boys program - intensive, high-quality training, many hours per day on the pitch, video analysis, beach training, nutrition seminars, sports psychology seminars, and more.

It’s important for young girls to train alongside other girls for a number of reasons. Not only is training with other girls usually more comfortable and safer, but it’s actually a more effective way for girls to improve. Girls have different body compositions and different strengths and weaknesses than boys. Styles of play also tend to be different on mens and womens teams to cater to the biological differences between the sexes. Girls who train with other girls get the most out of their training. That being said, girls shouldn’t expect any less intensity at the Barcelona Academy. This program is sure to give them the intensity they’re looking for.

Academy / Club history

The Barcelona High-performance Academy was founded in 1978 by the ex professional footballer, Francisco Javier Marcet, who played for major clubs like Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, and Espanyol, as well as the Spanish National Team. Marcet’s ultimate goal was always to open his own academy where young athletes could learn to play without neglecting their education or their own personal development.

With over 40 years of experience, the Barcelona High-performance Soccer Academy has trained and prepared countless professional soccer players for success. Academy alumni include David Soria (goalkeeper of Getafe FC), Óliver Torres (central midfielder and forward for Sevilla FC), and Alvaro Fernández (goalkeeper for Málaga FC and the Spanish National team).

Training

  • Skill level:Advanced/Elite
  • Other soccer education features:Audiovisual training, New technologies
  • Students per training group:10 - 12
  • Training language:Spanish
  • Training intensity:5/5

Training at the Barcelona GIRLS High-performance Summer Soccer Camp is intensive and professional. The girls typically wake up at 7:00 in the morning and are on the field training by 8:00 AM. On average, they train four times a day.

During training, the girls work on their technique (passing, dribbling, shooting, and ball control) and their game intelligence (spatial awareness, tactical knowledge, and risk assessment).

They also partake in friendly matches which the academy records on camera so coaches can analyze the girls’ performance later on. Video analysis is one of the best ways for soccer players to develop game intelligence, and the Barcelona High-performance Academy takes full advantage of this simple yet effective teaching method. The girls also work on their physical fitness while at the academy and even get the chance to train on the beach and use the sand for extra resistance.

Lastly, girls at the Barcelona GIRLS High-performance Summer Soccer Camp are treated like professionals in all aspects. Just like professionals, they receive nutritional and psychological guidance so they can thrive both physically and mentally.

  • Coaching experience:FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, Mexico National Team, and other first division club teams around the world

Coaches at the Barcelona GIRLS High-performance Summer Soccer Camp are well-qualified and experienced. Many have the highest coaching qualification in Europe known as the UEFA Pro License.
