La Manga Club Football Academy programme

Football Academy

6- to 9-year-olds

10.00-11.30 hrs

These sessions contain a mixture of activities where the player Is in contact with the ball many times as a way to improve their individual skills and techniques using different methods: touch and ball control, passing, haggling/running with the ball, techniques on how to hit the ball, SSG, etc. The sessions are 1 hour and 30 minutes long. This hour is spent working on different techniques that change daily, and the remaining 30 minutes are spent on playing a friendly game of football. 

Football Academy

10- to 12-year-olds

16.00-17.30 hrs

Sessions for this age group are more challenging, both through the ways overall skills are improved and how players understand football to be. The games come in a variety of formats to provide the basis for the sessions, with players working within a team structure and not just individually.  As a result, players are more aware of their participation and responsibilities within the team, while focusing on improving their skills and their overall understanding of the game. These sessions are 1 hour and 30 minutes long. This hour is dedicated to improving the players skills and understanding of the team in small team matches, while the last 30 minutes are used for free game play. The techniques covered change daily.

Football Academy

13- to 16-year-olds

16.00-17.30 hrs

This program contains much more structured sessions that include team play, functional activity (covering attack and defence situations), positional play (in and out of possession), and small games by bands, from 1v1s to 9 per team.  Our Academy also focuses on many aspects involved when players are working within "units or lines", as well as within the overall framework of a team. These sessions are 1 hour and 30 minutes long. This hour focuses on the activities that are mentioned above, and the last 30 minutes are used for free game play.

Fitness Football Sessions

10- to 16-year-olds

10.00-11.00 hrs

The Fitness Program focuses on working with your feet, quick feet, speed, acceleration, agility, basic conditioning exercise, short and sharp work in small spaces, etc., and part of the program is designed to do so with the ball. The program does NOT incorporate long runs or the use of weights, as we believe that these can be done individually outside of the Academy, if the players so desire. 

Goalkeeping Academy 

10- to 16-year-olds

16.00-17.30 hrs

This Academy operates during the 9 weeks of the SUMMER ACADEMY, with a 45 min specific technical session covering the technical areas of the goalkeeper and improving individual skills, as well as 45 mins of SSG & match play that covers the overall match game. Technical activities cover several techniques that goalkeepers are required to know. These include basic handling, foot movement, long dive stops, collapsed dive stops, trapped above head height, crosses, 1 v 1 situations, controlling the ball with the feet, kicks from dead ball situations, and out of hands. These exercises are intended to achieve a player's level of improvement through a short, sharp, and intensive approach

World Cups & Mini World Cups

17.45-19.00 hrs

Mini World Cup: 7- to 11-year-olds

World Cup: 12- to 16-year-olds

Our World Cup tournaments are one of our favourite daily events. Every evening the coaches turn into referees allowing the players to put their skills and development into practice in a competitive and safe environment. Depending on the numbers our staff create a tournament where each team will represent a country and play matches for 1 hour. The minimum number of players required per age group is 10. (5v5)

Private Lessons

10- to 18-year-olds

Subject to availability


Private lessons are individual sessions (one on one) with one of our professional coaches. The coaching staff create an individual 1-hour session based on the players' needs and on the player's requests. The sessions are position specific and require a high level of technique and fitness.
