FC Barcelona Announces the Official 2013 U.S. Soccer Camps

The following Official FC Barcelona Camps have been confirmed as of this Press Release.

The camps in Los Angeles will be held July 8-12, in New York July 15-19, in San Antonio July 22-26, and in Portland August 5-9. Players will be able to choose between a morning session or an afternoon session. The morning session will be held from 8 am to 11:30 a.m. and the afternoon session will be held from 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Camp dates in Seattle and San Jose are set to be confirmed shortly.

During its inaugural Summer Camps, FC Barcelona set out to develop United States’ Lionel Messi in six U.S. Cities. These one of a kind camps were conducted with great success during the months of July and August in Portland, Oregon; Seattle, Washington; San Jose, California; San Antonio, Texas; New York, New York; and Los Angeles, California. These camps served as a major stepping-stone for the participants who wished to learn skill taught in Barcelona by its Escola and Academy Coaches.

The Technical Coaching Teams, comprised of FC Barcelona Escola and FC Barcelona Academy (La Masia) Coaches, traveled from Barcelona to, with the assistance of Local Coaches, oversee the preparation and the execution of each camp.

It was simply amazing to see the transformation of the participants who ranged in age from 6 to 16 . Every player was quick to realize and adapt to the methodology employed by FC Barcelona. This rare and unique opportunity provided our youth with access to the highest levels of soccer training and development.

Frank Bagheri, President of AASEI, at the conclusion of the last camp in Seattle said, “It was a Great Success!! This summer has been amazing. Together with the FC Barcelona Based coaches, we transformed the fields of some of the largest cities in the U.S. into an Inaugural FCB Escola training camp with all of its values, discipline and training. To say we noticed players improve in every city we hosted is an understatement. We, literally, saw nearly 1,000 participants transform into “Barcelona Style” Players.”

The training methods of FC Barcelona Camps are derived directly from FCB Escola, the official football school of FC Barcelona. This is the trademark after school intensive training program that trains the players year round, three times a week. It caters specifically to players aged 6-14 in Barcelona, prepares them for the rigors of professional soccer and is a major feeder school to the club’s world class academy La Masia. This residential youth academy has produced superstars such as Lionel Messi, Cesc Fabregas, Xavi Hernandez, Gerard Pique, Victor Valdes, Carlos Puyol and Andres Iniesta, to name a few.

FC Barcelona’s claim to fame is their unique training style and with their end of game possession stats that are nearly unbeatable, it is hard to argue that a better style of play is yet to be discovered. In association with FC Barcelona, AASEI has been expanding these methods throughout the U.S. and is doing so with as much passion and vigor as FC Barcelona has done throughout the world with locations in India, Singapore, South Korea, England, El Salvador, Brazil, Argentina and Slovenia.

FC Barcelona was founded in 1899 and is now one of the most popular and supported football clubs in the world. The club prides itself on its ability to form players with dedication, patience and effort as opposed to buying them. This methodology has proven to be successful, as FC Barcelona has achieved more titles than most clubs in the world, including a record 6 championships during the 2008-2009 season.
