Are the coaches from FC Barcelona conducting the camps?
The camps are directed and supervised by FC Barcelona coaches with the assistance of local coaches that are certified by FC Barcelona to work in the program. The training camps and clinics are the same as the ones conducted in Barcelona, and the coaches from the club’s youth academy (FCB Escola) will be coming from Barcelona specifically to conduct the camps.

We accept participants from 6 to 16 years old.
How do you set up the practice groups?
On the first day of the camp participants will be grouped by skill level and age (U16, U14, U12, U10, U8). After the first day , participants could be moved around depending on their skill level.
Do goalkeepers have specific training sessions?
Yes, we will have Goalkeeper coaches and specific training sessions for goalkeepers if we reach a minimum number of registered goalies in the camp. If we do not reach a minimum number, our keepers will still be welcome to participate in our programs, but they will train with the field players during the camp.
What is the ratio coach/players?
1 Coach for every 10/12 players. There will be 3 FC Barcelona coaches per field assisted by 5/6 local coaches (previously certified by FC Barcelona).
Are parents allowed to visit during training?
Parents can visit training sessions as long as they don’t interfere with the program. There will be designated areas for the parents to watch the sessions.
The practice field, is it natural grass or artificial turf? Also, is it indoor or outdoor?
