FC Barcelona 2015 Summer Camp in Victoria, B.C.

Victoria, B.C., November 29, 2014 – FC Barcelona will be flying coaches from the FCB Escola (FC Barcelona Youth Academy) to Victoria, B.C. for a coaching clinic and a summer youth camp for boys and girls between 6 and 17 years old.

The inaugural FC Barcelona programs will be held at the Pacific Institute for Sport Excellence (PISE) from July 12th through July 17th, 2015. Certified FC Barcelona coaches will teach FC Barcelona methodologies and strategy to 50 local coaches. The coaching clinic will take place on Sunday July 12th from 10:00 a.m. until 03:00 p.m.

During the one-week youth camp, local athletes will be exposed to the same training that is exclusively taught at the FC Barcelona Academy in Barcelona, Spain. Each training session is limited to 72 athletes and they will be given a training ratio of 10-12 players per coach. There will be three training sessions each day and players will be grouped by age, gender and skill level. There will also be specific sessions for goalkeepers.

After the Victoria camp is completed, the top two players who also best exemplify FC Barcelona’s values (respect, tolerance, fair play and effort) will be awarded with one week of training at the FCB Escola in Barcelona.

Name: Sara Abelenda
Club: Vancouver Island Wave

Sara Abelenda plays for the 2000 born or U15 Vancouver Island Wave soccer team.  She has been a member of the team since being promoted from Gorge Soccer Association when she was 12 years old.  She started playing soccer when she was only four years old and had the privilege of being coached by her dad Paul.

Sara is in grade 9 at the Reynold’s Soccer Academy and is enrolled in the Flexible Studies Program which requires students to volunteer at community organizations.  The Lower Island Soccer office was lucky to get Sara where she helped us with many tasks including the District Cup Program, counting medals, updating social media and working on our electronic newsletter, all during her Spring Break.

In addition to being a great soccer player and an upcoming soccer administrator, she also referees.  She likes refereeing because of the nice people at Gorge who have ensured she is protected by the zero tolerance policy.  Sara was recently selected to be an official in the 2nd Annual LISA Cup competition.

Ronaldo is her favourite soccer player and Real Madrid is her favourite soccer team.

We wish Sara the best of luck in all of her future endeavors!

Congratulations on being this week’s Footballers of the Week!

To nominate a player or administrator please contact your respective organization.
