Barça Academy PRO New York is a youth football academy in New York, owned and operated by FC Barcelona. Located in Long Island, it offers an exclusive opportunity to learn the methodology and values of Barça's unparalleled style and philosophy.
At Barça Academy we work according to FC Barcelona’s unique model, the very same model employed at La Masia. Through this methodology, we developed the proactive, collective and creative style of play that brought players like Messi, Piqué, Busquets, Jordi Alba, Xavi, Iniesta and many others to the world stage. We also emphasize the teaching of our core values: humility, effort, ambition, respect and teamwork.
The players at Barça Academy PRO New York can participate in unique and exclusive international experiences, such as the Barça Academy World Cup and the Barça Academy Cup Las Américas. They can also participate in tournaments in different parts of the world as well as the Barça Clinics.
By participating in these tournaments, our players enter the international showcase as they take on some of the best grassroots teams in the world.
Our coaching staff is led by Miquel Gasparín. Our Technical Director Miquel and four Technical Coordinators from FC Barcelona lead the technical staff of Barça Academy PRO New York, ensuring that all players receive the best training in football and in life according to the Barça methodology.
