Given the situation caused by the coronavirus transmission, and with the aim of preserving the protection and integrity of the players, families and employees, at BARÇA Escola we have assumed the indications and the preventive recommendations of the competent health authorities.
For this reason, we will not be able to take the BARÇA Escola tryouts on the dates that were scheduled.
When circumstances allow, we will announce the new dates to carry out the tryouts to be part of the BARÇA Escola next season.

Methods at Barça Escola
- Can my child combine Barça Escola with another club?
Yes, although Barça Escola should always be the priority. During the season, there are justified and non-justified absences. In the case of a third unjustified absence, that family will lose its places.
- What is included in Barça Escola?
The service includes all weekly training sessions and a game on Sunday afternoon. During the season there are also some tournaments and games depending on availability.
- What kit does my child need?
They must bring shin guards (compulsory) and football boots. The inscription includes training kit consisting of shirt, shorts and socks. Players must also bring a bottle of water. All gear must be properly labelled with the player’s name to avoid any losses in the changing rooms.
- Are showers compulsory?
Yes. All players that train at Barça Escola must shower afterwards. In the case of any special requirements, please advise beforehand.
- How are the teams decided? And the coaches?
Teams are organised by ages (pre-U10, U10 and U12). BARÇA Escola will look to improve both individual and team performance. We therefore try to make the teams as competitive as possible. Every team will have its own head coach.
