Football Training

The success of its illustrious alumni, football legends Lionel Messi, Andrés Iniesta, Sergio Busquets and Gerard Piqué, to name a few, is testimony to the unique youth development system and coaching methodology at Barça Academy.

“More than a Club”, the academy combines legendary coaching methodology with its dominant playing style of possession-based football that has evolved over a100 years. Whether it is for the first team FC Barcelona or at the Barça Academy, this signature football style lies at the core of all training.

The Barça methodology focuses on creating autonomous and imaginative players who display initiative through possession of the ball. The Barça academy lays equal emphasis is laid on their ability to organising themselves in a group to play a good game — through values of humility, effort, ambition, respect and teamwork.

The academy ensures both the highest-quality infrastructure and individual focus on each player to promote the physical, mental, emotional and social development of your 5 to18 year old. It is a highly credible and aspirational integrated learning hub for every football player – recreational or professional!



The Barça Way

  • 1:1 player-to-ball ratio: Each player in the training group has a ball available at all times. Drills are designed so as to engage all players at all times.
  • 100% coaching time utilisation: No queues, no waiting. Everyone plays all 75 minutes!
  • Premium medical care: Player medical care is a priority. A trained physiotherapist is present at every location at all times, backed with state-of-the-art infrastructure ground facilities with a Nike football and kit for every player.
  • Professional international standard of play: Every practice session and match day is meticulously planned by Barça trained coaches to mirror match-like situations, and reviewed by the Technical Director from FC Barcelona. Football is a fast-thinking sport, where players need supreme mental agility to make split-second decisions and the practice sessions are designed and structured to hone this skill. Our ‘rondo’ drills reinforce the belief that ‘The BEST teacher is the Game’! The football style remains consistent whether it is at the academy or FC Barcelona’s first team.
  • Global exposure: Barça’s elite squad of budding professional talent paves a pathway to international tournaments such as the Dubai Cup, Singa Cup and Barça World Cup. This global exposure is invaluable in their overall personality development.

  • Personality growth along with Barça cultivated values and behaviours which become reliable personal resources for winning in life.
