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.
Participants will stay in a high-quality residence, situated only 10 minutes walking distance from the academy.
The rooms are quadruples and include a private bathroom. Here young people from all over the world share a living space, and this diversity enriches the overall experience on a cultural level in addition to athletics.
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

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
