Yesterday we published news of a potential FC Barcelona Escola Soccer Camp coming to Scotland in 2017. I think it had us all excited!!
As amazing as this would be, we want to ensure everything is ran professionally and efficiently. Parents would be paying a considerable amount of money for a week of coaching and learning the Barcelona methodology. Although FCB Escola coaches would be directing the event, local coaches would be assisting them. I feel it is important that those local coaches have experience of the Barcelona methodology prior to running any camp. This will include coach education. For us, value for money is extremely important. We want the best coaches and facilities possible to give the children the full Barcelona experience.
As a result, we will now host the camp in summer 2018. This will allow us time to prepare properly, confirm suitable venues and to recruit and train suitable support coaches.
This will also allow parents to plan and prepare for 2018.
This will be a fantastic opportunity for any child who wants to experience the world renowned Barcelona tika-taka football. The week will include kit, coaching and education. There will be signed Barcelona strips and coaching in Barcelona with stadium tour and match tickets to be won.
Places will be on a first come first served basis with numbers limited to 100 children per week. Due to the amazing response across the country yesterday, we will be running one camp in the East of Scotland and one in the West.
Prices will be between £350-£400 per week. Venues and dates will be confirmed asap.
If you would like to register your child please email us here. Please include details of your child's name, age and club. Stating East or West coast.
The camp will have a 12:1 child to coach ratio with children grouped on age/ability.
