Clubs/Teams Football Camp
EFA offers a full package of training and activities for your football team ranging from a few days up to two weeks in duration in one of the most attractive locations on the Costa Brava, Spain. In this professional environment, your team can improve all aspects of their game. What’s more, your group will also get to take part in friendly matches and enjoy a range of leisure activities.
Any period between 15 September 2018 and 15 June 2019
Three nights, five nights, one week or two weeks
The package we offer is designed to take care of your entire stay at our Costa Brava based Academy. We take care of transfers between the Academy and the airport, coaching, friendly matches (with teams from different categories in the Catalan league), leisure activities and full board accommodation. All that’s left for your team to do, is concentrate on getting the best out of this experience.
The Academy normally works with teams of children up to 18 years of age who are learning the basics of football, but if you are involved with a semi-professional team or are over 16 years old, please contact us. Between us and the Academy, will make every effort to accommodate your needs.
The programme lasts from 3 to 14 days and is open to teams with all levels of ability. The minimum number of participants is 25 and the maximum is 50. Please enquire for teams of other sizes.
We offer four types of packages, offering different elements. Further details can be found on the ‘Prices and Dates’ page.
Training is based on a combination of activities which include:
• Training sessions (physical, tactical and technical)
• Friendly games
• Video analysis
• Sports discussions
• Observing a training session of FC Figueras, or FC Girona, or one of its many categories
Depending on the programme chosen, teams will have free access to the Academy’s swimming pool, gym and spa, enabling participants to exercise or relax in their free time.
There is also the option for up to two trainers, supervisors or coaches to accompany their team at the Academy. Those who choose to attend may also participate in the training sessions.
Participating teams are met and greeted by camp representatives on arrival at Barcelona/Girona, and transported to their hotel. Once settled in, they are given a guided tour of the sports facilities before attending their first training session.
The majority of each day is spent attending coaching sessions and taking part in other football-related activities. After working hard in training, team members will also have the chance to relax and unwind. The Academy offers a range of activities and excursions to enable participants to get to know the fantastic city of Girona. The length and type of programme that is selected by each team, will determine the schedule of leisure activities, however, typical examples include:
• Trip to watch a live match of Barcelona or Espanyol
• Visit to some of Girona’s most famous sites such as “Old town”, Cadaques, the Salvador Dali Museum
• Tour of the FC Girona’s Stadium
• Shopping trip
• Trying tapas or paella at a local restaurant
In addition to participants enjoying the Academy’s fantastic sporting facilities, we also offers a leisure activity programme for parents who plan to stay in the Costa Brava while their children participate in the programme. Please contact us for more information.
Boys and girls between the ages of 8 and 18 are welcome to participate in the programme.
The academy is located in the coastal area of Roses/Empuriabrava on the Costa Brava Coast. Team members will stay nearby in a 3 or 4-star hotel. As well as taking part in training sessions and friendly matches, participants can also use the camp’s swimming pool, gym and spa, which means that team members can continue working on their strength and fitness outside of the standard Academy schedule.
The Academy uses the best sports facilities in Roses and Empuriabrava, which include a natural grass football stadium, three artificial turf football pitches, two outdoor swimming pools, two indoor swimming pools and a professional weights room.
Teams are accommodated in a 3 star or 4 star hotel, depending on the programme selected. In both cases, double or triple rooms with private bathrooms are provided. We provide players with a sport adjusted breakfast and buffet for lunch and dinner.
Only qualified international football coaches work with players on developing their football fundamentals.
Doctors are available 24/7 at players’ request during the programme for players with EU medical insurance.
Numerous activities have been organised for players during their spare time, from an excursion to Girona FC stadium and swimming school for non-swimmers to Flamenco dance nights and beach visits. Activities depend on the duration of the stay.
