This program is oriented at players who are required to work and improve their individual and team skills. They will be introduced to different techniques and training methodologies to ensure their progress and development.
The Academy Program is the base programme, which gives players the main start for the transition to the Advanced programmes of Barça Academy Dubai. Our coaches regularly monitor players’ progress in the Development programme and give the opportunity to selected players of various ages to move level up if they deem them fit and ready to take it to the next level. Attention is given to mastering players’ individual skills like ball controlling, running with ball, dribbling, tackling, ball interception and shooting as well as sharpening players’ team skills and their understanding of each particular role and position on the pitch.
Players that are part of this programme train twice per week in addition to 1 weekly internal league game as well as regular external friendlies in order to provide a competitive environment that allows young players to put in practice what they learn at training.
