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.

Graeme

Graeme has had quite a journey in his youth soccer career. He started as a defender a few seasons ago because of a skill and a quickness that rarely failed to catch a crafty attacker. As time went on and solid backs could be found, it freed Graeme to move his way up the pitch to midfield and finally this season to striker. He has the heart of striker too with his limitless tenacity and his ability each game to create scoring chances with sure fire finish. Off the field, his teammates appreciate his sense of humour and he gives back to the game he loves by refereeing.

Graeme has been giving a lot of himself to the game lately including a loss of a lot of teeth in last weekend’s game.

We wish him well in U-21 next season.

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