The program is for student athletes who are already highly skilled football players and whose main objective is to fine-tune their skills physically, technically, mentally, and strategically. Programs are especially designed for different age groups.
The Barcelona Academy is a professional establishment which specializes in training talented student athletes to fulfill their potential and eventually play in the first or second divisions of Europe’s top leagues. This is a distinguished program as a result of its professional nature and its demanding and intensive program. On average, 30 of the academy’s students per year are offered contracts with first division European teams.
Each year, hundreds of student athletes attend the Barcelona High Performance summer camp. The academy also offers similar yearlong high performance training programs as well as other short specialized programs. For more information, please contact us.
Student housing is in the same location as the sports complex where participants train. This provides extra security for the young athletes and reassurance for their parents.
The high performance academy attracts student athletes from all over the world. These participants come from different backgrounds and have different cultures, values, and religions and even speak different languages. The students enjoy an enlightening educational experience as they learn to live in harmony and respect one another.
The high performance program is designed for student athletes from 8 to 21 years old who are already highly skilled soccer players. Participants should be serious, responsible and hardworking and should be willing to make sacrifices in order to reach their full potential.

This program is very demanding in nature. Athletes spend most of their time attending different training sessions. Training starts at 9:00 AM and continues until 5:00 PM or 6:00 PM making it suitable for only the most highly skilled, physically fit athletes.
Programa Alto Rendimiento (de 14 a 21 años)
Alta Tecnificación (De 8 a 13 años)
The Barcelona High Performance Academy is also dedicated to instilling values in its students.
The camp’s unique training program is designed to maximize the players’ progress far beyond the technical aspects of the sport. To optimize progress over a short period of time, coaches frequently individually evaluate players and point out their personal strengths and weaknesses.
Coaches place athletes in small groups based on skill level so they can set proper attainable yet challenging goals for the athletes. How do coaches do this? They challenge the athletes with drills that are slightly above the current skill level of the athletes while at the same time instructing them through the drills and encouraging their effort.
At this academy, students:
- Improve concentration
- Learn to make intelligent decisions
- Gain complete technical knowledge of the game
- Gain awareness of the movement and positioning of teammates and opponents
- Develop the rhythm and intensity of European football
Once again, this academy is extremely football centric but is also dedicated to teaching its students values such as sacrifice, work ethic, and respect.
The academy’s mission is to develop intelligent football players who, as a result of their football skills and/or the values they learned at the academy, have very high chances of being successful.
Agenda & Activities
Training starts at 9:00 AM and continues until 5:00 PM or 6:00 PM and is divided into two distinct sessions:
- Training on the pitch including theory and technical sessions
- Strategic discussion including video analysis of matches
Excursions and activities
Participants attend practical and theoretical training sessions until around 7:00 PM every day. After training, they have time to relax, socialize, catch up with their families, or enjoy the facilities of the residence.
The program is highly football centric and there is little time for other activities. As such, it is perfect for serious athletes who want to dedicate themselves to football professionally.
Nevertheless, the camp does offer some non-football related activities for participants. For example, students 14 years old and over attend daily activities in the swimming pool. Therefore, participants 14 years old and over should bring bathing gear, flip-flops, and a towel.
Participants also have the opportunity to visit a few sites and attend some events in the area to get to know the city of Barcelona. These excursions include:
- A visit to the museum of Barcelona FC
- Quasar combat
- A Movie NIGHT at Barcelona’s 3D Cinemax
Accommodation & Facilities
If you wish to reserve accommodation with the football program, you can choose between two different options:
- Option one: Stay at the academy’s own residence. This is basic accommodation on the same site as the sports complex which means athletes won’t have to travel to and from the training grounds.
- Option two: Stay at a higher quality external residence. Students staying at the external residence will have to travel 30 minutes to and from the training grounds.
