& Starting Dates
The Marcet Foundation academy is a professional proficiency football training centre where young footballers between the ages of 8 and 21 years with the potential for a career in professional football receive coaching to help them acquire the necessary skills and knowledge.
This prestigious football academy is highly renowned throughout the world. It has its own training method delivered by professional coaches who themselves have been trained at the academy in order that they are fully equipped to deliver the specific training methods.
10 month programme: Professional Eurofootball Programme: from September to June.
- 3 or 6 month programme: this can be taken at any time of the year.
- Checking Programme: an intensive programme lasting 1-6 weeks which can begin on any date (due to the fact that this is a short programme it does not include an academic study option).
*The residential accommodation element is optional, as is the educational course (if it is preferred that participants under 16 study at a different school).
*There are certain criteria that need to be met by applicants to the academy programme. The young player will need to attend the academy for at least one week so that their football skills can be assessed. In exceptional circumstances, for example, if the participant lives a considerable distance from the centre (a country like Brazil for example) it will be possible instead to send videos and a sporting curriculum certifying the level of the player.
The Foundation collaborates with a number of schools in order to offer the students different academic options, from primary education, ESO (the compulsory secondary education qualification in Spain) or Baccalaureate, even a course in professional football skills.
In terms of where the students stay while on the programme, the academy has a student residence, with shared rooms and full board.
