The Academy Program is structured to emphasize the Barça methodology in a small team environment (maximum 12 players). Each session is focused on game-like situations in which players will have to constantly interpret what is the best solution to be effective for the team/task goal. Players will engage in two training sessions per week and the Internal Competition Matchdays. The Academy Program is the next step in the Internal Pathway at the Academy, players in this program will have the potential to progress and be selected to the Academy Select Program.
