Open enrollment to sign up for the training sessions FCBCamp planned for the Christmas season
We also organize special sessions for goalkeepers, with small groups of six
FC Barcelona is offering the very best Christmas soccer camp to boys and girls born between 2001 and 2007. The camp is aimed at pupils of both FCB Escola and FCB Escola de Tecnificació, as well as boys and girls from other schools and sports clubs. Last year’s edition was very well attended indeed and went down extremely well among the youngsters that took part.
The FCBCamp will consist of training workshops and complementary activities with FCBEscola that will teach pupils to learn, improve and perfect the main football skills, and also to develop personally, guided all the way by the famous Barça values.
Two different weeks to choose from
The dates available for registration for the campus are: the first week on December 27 and 28, and the second week from January 2 to 4. You can sign up for one or both of the weeks, although places are limited: 250 participants in the first week and 200 participants in the second.
Ciutat Esportiva hosts FCBCamp
The venue for the activities will be training pitches 5, 6, 8 and 9 at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper in Sant Joan Despí, which all have artificial grass, but other FC Barcelona spaces will also be used, such as Sala París, Sala Wembley, the FC Barcelona Museum, etc. The work will involve two training sessions a day as part of the camp timetable: between 8.30 and 17.30.
One thing for which FCB is renowned is high quality, and its Christmas soccer camp is no exception. The FCB Escola coaches are all highly experienced at working with children, are CAFE licensed and are officially certified by the Catalan Football Federation.
The children will receive personal attention and with a maximum ratio of 12 pupils per coach, the focus is very much on the participants. Each child will also be placed in the appropriate group for their age and level, to ensure that they adapt easily and comfortably to their group. Also, for the first time, FCB Escola will be providing complete training gear to all of the participants on the first day of the camp: sweatshirt, football shirt, shorts and socks.
FCBCamp for goalkeepers
Youngsters that prefer defending nets to dribbling past opponents are also catered for by the FCBCamp. On January 2, 3 and 4 and at the same time, there will be a special FCBCamp for goalkeepers, including two training sessions a day in small groups of six goalkeepers, who will be receiving personalised attention. However, they will also be receiving complete kit and will take part in all of the other activities on the FC Barcelona facilities with the children on the regular camp.
