Coaching FC Barcelona
This camp takes place at the official F.C. Barcelona academy in Arizona. The summer programme provides an opportunity to young people from all around the world who love football to train alongside academy students with the club’s experienced coaches and experience a similar day to day routine as that of a professional footballer.
The coaching sessions take place from Monday to Friday for 4 hours a day split into two sessions. Training includes work on improving different elements, such as technique and physical fitness. There are also practice matches organised.
This camp is not only dedicated to coaching football skills but also imparting values and advising the young players about issues like nutrition.
The official coaches of F.C. Barcelona are responsible for training the participants during their stay at the camp, guiding them to an understanding about the dedication, the character, the team work and the mental strength necessary to have success as a footballer on the world stage.
The Barcelona Academy camp offers participants an immersion in the game, with learning and competition which covers the four aspects below:
Training sessions cover the technical aspects of the game.
Training sessions are structured to help make the players more intelligent footballers, creating situations similar to those in the real game.
The camp organises daily sessions to help improve players’ aerobic capacity but at the same time protect them against excessive effort.
The situation where participants are living in a residence with many other young people away from their family and friends helps them to become more independent, mature and disciplined. As well as the football coaches, there is a large team of professionals at the academy, which guarantees support and learning for the young people in all aspects connected with the sport.
