This camp collaborates with a world-renowned soccer academy in Barcelona called the Barcelona High-performance Academy. The academy has over 40 years of experience preparing young soccer players to compete in the professional area, and they’ve agreed to send their best coaches to FEX this summer to train FEX Summer Camp participants and help them reach their full potential.

They've also chosen the best sports facilities and accommodation in an exclusive area close to Marbella to guarantee quality and comfort for all participants.

FEX Summer Camp participants stay at the Gran Hotel Benahavís and train at the hotel’s sports facilities. These luxurious accommodations and first class facilities are designed to host professional football teams from around the world. Teams such as the German and Belgian national teams and many others have spent time here and have found these facilities to be the best place to concentrate and prepare for preseason and competitions.

The camp takes place during the first two weeks of July and is open to male athletes from 12 - 16 years old of all positions (goalkeepers included).This program is ideal for intermediate-advanced/elite soccer players with a burning desire to reach their full potential and become successful soccer players.

This academy is located in Benahavís: a municipality adjacent to the city of Marbella, in the province of Malaga. The location provides unbeatable conditions for young soccer players to both improve their skills and enjoy an incredible soccer experience.

The academy’s objective is to show participants the skills and mindset necessary to compete at the highest level and to show participants how to achieve their goals based on hard work, passion, and solid training. FEX also thoroughly analyzes the strengths and weaknesses of each player to assess their ability to improve and their potential for success in the future.

In addition, camp participants who demonstrate great talent and a positive attitude will have the opportunity to continue their football and academic training for one or more seasons at the Barcelona High-performance Academy.

In Benahavís, athletes will enjoy an exceptional climate, a safe and quiet environment, the maximum level of comfort, and, to top it off, an excellent recreational program. Participants are sure to remember this wonderful learning experience for the rest of their lives.

There are only 60 spots available, so hurry before they run out!

The FEX Summer Camp offers intensive, high-performance soccer training. It’s all about offering players the best training in a professional environment so that they can take full advantage of their two weeks of soccer development.

During the day, several training sessions are held from 9 in the morning until 6 in the afternoon. Participants also train on Saturday morning. Spanish is the camp’s official language, and training sessions are held in Spanish. That being said, coaches also have an intermediate level of English and can speak English if necessary.

The participants practice various technical and tactical exercises during the program including shooting, positioning, dribbling, decision-making, marking, competitions, etc. Training is intensive and adapted to prepare participants for advanced/elite European football. On-field training is also complemented by physical conditioning and recovery sessions in the gym and outdoor swimming pool.

Given the intensity of training, we only recommend this program to soccer players who are already accustomed to physical activity on a regular basis. Participants are expected to keep up with the demands of the program.

In terms of skill level, the camp accepts intermediate, advanced or elite level soccer players. During the first few days of camp, coaches evaluate the skill level of the participants and place them in groups with other athletes of a similar level (maximum of 15 players per group). Goalkeepers train a few hours a day with a specialized coach, performing personalized exercises designed for their position.

FEX is looking for 60 athletes who, as an essential requirement, have the desire to work hard, learn, and dedicate two weeks of their summer to achieving their athletic goals.

Plan for the Future

This camp is a unique opportunity for young soccer players to experience day-to-day life at a high-performance soccer academy before committing to a long-term program in one of these professional training centers.

Coaches at FEX come directly from the Barcelona High-performance Academy to train FEX summer camp participants and prepare them to compete in the professional arena. The coaches are experts in analyzing the potential of each player and determining their chances of competing professionally.

When camp ends, players with the highest level and best attitudes will be shortlisted and offered the opportunity to continue training and studying in Barcelona for at least one full season.


The FEX camp coaches come right from the coaching roster of the Barcelona High-performance Academy, an academy with more than 40 years of experience as well as its own training method which has successfully prepared a multitude of players to compete professionally.

All coaches have a UEFA Pro License, and they’ve also been trained by the Barcelona High Performance Academy to learn the pedagogical methods that have led this academy to be one of the best training centers for soccer players in the world.


Extra Services Available

The academy also offers students the possibility to purchase several additional services so they can personalize their program even more and ultimately make the most of the experience. These services are as follows:

Personal trainer: €300/day

Players who purchase this service will be accompanied at all times by a personal trainer/coach. The coach will analyze everything they do during the day in real time and teach them what they need to improve to reach their full potential.
The coach will also record videos of the player throughout the day so that they can see their own weaknesses and witness their own improvement as they follow the FEX training program and the advice laid out for them by their personal trainer.

Several days after the end of the camp, they’ll receive their final analysis by email.

New Technologies: €200/session

This service offers the latest in football technology to help participants improve. Some of the exercises that are performed are the following:

Free kicks/Penalties

The player takes a variety of shots on goal with a smart ball that records data about its speed, rotation, impact zone, and route. The player's kicking movement is also recorded to analyze all aspects for improvement.

Intelligent Goal System

These goals have LED indicators that light up to show where to direct the ball so the player can decide which tactic to use depending on the space, his opponents, and his teammates. This helps improve peripheral vision, a necessary strength for all positions.

There are also specific exercises for goalkeepers, such as a game with strobe glasses (to work space and movement) or the FitLight system (more focused on improving technical and tactical aspects of play).
All of these sessions are recorded, analyzed, and sent to the player after the end of camp.

Video analysis: €360/session

This service consists of performing an initial analysis during the first days of camp in order to determine a list of personalized objectives for the initial training sessions. A second video analysis will then be performed to follow, control, and analyze these objectives and the evolution of the player throughout the course.

Accommodations/Training Facilities

The goal of FEX is to provide the highest level of comfort so that players can focus purely on improving their football skills.

The camp is located on the Costa del Sol just a few minutes from Marbella in a quiet area away from the hustle and bustle of the city, making it the perfect destination for relaxation and concentration. That’s why it’s a favorite destination for so many professional teams.

Teams such as the Belgian and German National Teams, Faroe Islands, Málaga FC, Dynamo Moscow, FCL Luzern, Sparta Prague, FC Nurenberg, Krakow LAT, Aston Villa, Jerv, HJK Helsinki, Sporting Lokeren, Hercules FC, Kristiansund, and many more first and second division teams have passed through these facilities.

To top it off, the accommodations and training facilities are located on the same campus, so campers won’t waste time on daily trips to the pitch. Participants only leave the camp facilities for the two scheduled excursions.

Students are supervised 24 hours a day by experienced chaperones who also stay in the hotel and accompany players at all times, both day-to-day and during excursions.
