FC Barcelona is one of the world's biggest clubs, featuring some of the best players across the globe to play the game. Their youth academy, also known as La Masia, is legendary, creating players like Lionel Messi, Xavi, Iniesta, and many more.
This winter, Coach Yousef will have the incredible opportunity to have an in-depth look at La Masia first-hand. This learning experience is invaluable for our club, as the style of soccer we play, mimics this very club.
Coach Yousef will have the opportunity to meet for a Q&A session with the RCD Espanyol staff (a rival club to FC Barcelona). He will observe training sessions for the youth squads of both FC Barcelona and RCD Espanyol. Coach Yousef will also have the pleasure of sitting in on an education panel of experts discussing the development of youth players. And finally he will get the opportunity to attend a fan signing-session for a number of high-profile players.
We hope to see Coach Yousef bring back a great deal of knowledge, insight, and education from one the world's soccer epicenters.
