What is the difference between the Traditional FC Barcelona Camp and the Elite Camp?
Our Traditional FC Barcelona Camp is suited for every soccer player. This camp has a maximum of 144 players and is geared toward all skill levels with an age range from 6-16. The players are grouped by age and can move from group to group to cater their skill level. Most locations offer two Traditional camps each day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Due to the large size of this camp, the FC Barcelona coaches host the camp along with assistance by local coaches. The registration fee for the Traditional Barcelona Camp is $395.
The Elite FC Barcelona Camps are geared towards average to above average players ONLY. This camp is much smaller and will consist of only three groups of similar age for a maximum of 45 players with an age range of 8-14. Elite Camps are usually offered in the early evening. This camp is conducted exclusively by FC Barcelona Coaches. The registration fee for the Elite Camp is $595.
How do I know if my player is considered "Elite"?
An "Elite" player will typically have some experience and be more advanced than other players their age. Evaluation for the Elite Camp is at the discretion of the parents or guardians as the qualifications previously described.
How do I register my player for the Elite Camp?
To register for the Elite Camp, please visit our Camp Registration page and proceed to the Elite Camp registration form. We will not be holding any tryouts for the Elite Camps this year, filling out the registration form and following through with payment is sufficient.
Can I register for two camps of my choice?
We will not stop anyone from registering for more than one camp at a time but it is not recommended. Barcelona Camps are structured to give each player the correct amount of training and skills to benefit them for the future.
The FCBEscola is a soccer school model based on FC Barcelona's philosophy whose main objective is the integral training of the students. This training is based on two basic ideas:
- Teaching the players the basics of soccer so they can successfully face up to the sporting challenges they might face in the future.
- Transmitting the values that represent FC Barcelona: tolerance, respect, solidarity, comradeship, citizenship and integration.
