The fourth FC Barcelona training camp starts at La Manga Club
For the fourth consecutive year, La Manga Club hosts over a hundred boys and girls who will take part in the camp and subsequently be divided into ten teams, based on their age. In addition to training sessions, they will also be able to enjoy other activities such as visits to the pool and screenings of sports videos.
La Manga Club, 24th July 2017 - The Barça camp started this morning on the football pitches of La Manga Club, with it already proving to be a great success in terms of participation numbers and efficient organisation. A total of 110 children aged between 6 and 17 years are taking part in this the fourth edition of the FC Barcelona Escola Camp, a football training camp which continues to prove itself to be one of the big summer events for children at La Manga Club.
This year, the camp takes place from 24th to 28th of July and those who take part will have the opportunity to stay overnight at the resort (ideal for those coming to La Manga Club for a family holiday) or to simply take part in the daily activities.
In addition to training sessions organised for the morning and afternoon, the young footballers will enjoy other fun activities whilst at the resort, such as going to the pool, watching sports videos and other team building activities with fellow team mates and the coaching staff.
The aim of the project is to convey the values associated with the ideology of FC Barcelona to the young participants, such as leadership, hard-work, respect for others, team work and self-control, through playing football and other training activities.
Before starting today’s training session, the participants of the Barça camp received a Barcelona shirt. Upon finishing the training camp, the players will be presented with a participation certificate and rewarded with an official football, gifts that will remind them of their experience this summer at La Manga Club.
