FC Barcelona Soccer Camp

FC Barcelona Soccer Camp for Kids in Concord

My husband first found an ad for FC Barcelona Soccer Camp for kids in a free parenting magazine. We were overjoyed. It’s no secret that we are HUGE Barça fans. We went to Barcelona a year ago but weren’t able to catch a game. So … we went to Washington DC to watch them play Manchester United. Unfortunately, Lionel Messi wasn’t playing in that game. So … we went to New Jersey to watch Messi play for Argentina against who cares. (Ok, it was actually against Brazil).
At first, my husband was skeptical. Perhaps it was a scam. It could not be the real coaches. Could the website be a fake? We thought to ask the two college soccer coaches. Is this for real? Barcelona had never had a camp in Boston before! My husband did some digging and found it satisfactory. Our 5th grade middle child, PickyKidPix, was gung ho to sign up. We pulled the trigger.
A week ago, I received a press release from the camp. Yay! It feels legit now! Here are the details: The FC Barcelona camp offers boys and girls, ages 8-16, the unique and exciting opportunity to experience specialized soccer training through an official partnership with the world’s most successful soccer team, FC Barcelona, and their expert coaches.  Participants have access to FC Barcelona’s training methods at world-class facilities at the Middlesex School in Concord.The camp runs from July 15-19, from 9:30a.m.-3:30p.m. and will help players reach their full potential and achieve their goals – whether that’s earning a college scholarship, making their school, travel or club team, or simply perfecting their soccer schools.  Training is led by official coaches from FC Barcelona Soccer School and consists of two training sessions and a scrimmage daily. Two of the participants will be selected at the camp to go to Barcelona to participate in the FC Barcelona Camp in Spain.

We will see you there!

    Hi there! Can I ask you a question? We are a huge soccer family as well.

    You mentioned going to D.C and New Jersey to see FC Barcelona and Manchester United… I am dying to take my son to do something like that. Do you know how I would find out when they are coming back to the U.S to play?

      Hi Rachel,
      Check to see if they are coming out in the summer for these “friendly” games where they make oodles of money. I hadn’t heard that they were coming back. It was sort of an unusual match up too. So, we went to DC to watch Barcelona play Man U, but the game in New Jersey was the Argentina National Team (from World Cup) play Brazil’s national team. Lionel Messi plays for Argentina, his home country, for the World Cup but most of the Barcelona team plays for Spain.

      My husband seems to haunt their websites and blogs to get that kind of info. I’ll post on it if there is another game in sight but my husband hasn’t mentioned anything so I don’t they are here this year. They don’t come that often.

    The Barcelona camp is coming to my area in a week or two. I’d really enjoy reading you’re impressions of the camp. It’s a little pricey… I don’t mind paying for quality (coaching, facilities, etc.), but don’t want to pay for a camp that is Barcelona in name only.

    Thanks

      Hi Andy,
      They definitely send over the Barcelona coaches and my daughter was thrilled to be coached by hers. She loved the camp!
