Academy

The Academy program is structured to ensure that every coach plays a close role in each player’s development and the training sessions encourage a high degree of participation. As a result, each team is composed of a maximum of 12 players. Following the FC Barcelona methodology, the Barça Academy Brisbane employs the same training methods used by the youth teams at the Club, which consist of a group of progressive and interrelated exercises, adapted to each training level or stage.
