This is a tryout programme to become part of the academy's annual training team.

It is not a direct tryout for a professional football team. Although it is the longer path, it offers a much better chance of success.

The most prominent students from the academy's annual programme will have the chance to attend tryouts with professional or semi-professional football teams, but this will only happen once the training staff deem that they have all the necessary technical and physical skills, and are mature enough to take the leap into a career in professional football.

About the Academy

With over 40 years of history, this Barcelona-based academy features a wide variety of short and long-term programmes throughout the year, designed for students between 6 and 21 years of age. Players like Keylor Navas, Carlos Kameni, and Oliver Torres have trained here. The academy is notable for its long-standing experience and highly intensive and demanding training programmes.

These programmes are designed for outfield players and goalkeepers who are committed to the sport and willing to do their absolute best to improve.


Training Programme

The programme consists of up to 5 hours of training sessions a day, in which students will learn about the global aspects of the sport, as well as gameplay, decision-making, sports psychology, injury prevention, fitness, and professional training.

While the academy's annual students attend their morning classes, the students in the tryout programme will receive personalized training, either individually or in very small groups.

They will then join the annual students in their afternoon training sessions.

The programme also includes gym, beach, and pool sessions depending on the day.

There are additional services available, such as:

  • Structural Analysis
  • Bioimpedance Analysis

Training Facilities

The academy features several natural and artificial grass football pitches, as well as a diner, changing rooms, and conference rooms, all onsite.

Even though the academy is over 40 years old, its sports facilities were renovated in 2021.
