The Barcelona Academy camp offers participants an immersion in the game, with learning and competition which covers the four aspects below:

  • Technical

Training sessions cover the technical aspects of the game.

  • Tactical

Training sessions are structured to help make the players more intelligent footballers, creating situations similar to those in the real game.

  • Physical

The camp organises daily sessions to help improve players’ aerobic capacity but at the same time protect them against excessive effort.

  • Psychological

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.
