Academy

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 Matchdays. Selected teams will represent the Barça Academy Sydney in the Premier Academy League.
