The Barça Escola Development Program aims to perfect and improve the technique of each player

This program is designed to offer extra training to players who want to continue improving their individual and collective game, with characteristics that promote integral personal development. 

This program follows the methodology and game theory of FC Barcelona, is ​​suitable for each stage or level of training, and is designed for male and female players born between 2016-2009 who want to improve their style of play by attending weekly training, but without participating in the matches of the internal league.


Currently, the Barça School has two DEVELOPMENT programs: Barcelona and Catalonia.

The DEVELOPMENT program Barcelona program consists of four stages depending on the age of the students:

  • U8
  • U10
  • U12
  • U14

To players who cannot travel or access the Barcelona program, we offer the possibility of participating in the DEVELOPMENT program Catalonia, aimed at the same age group and following the same methodology, but offering different venues to all the provinces of Catalonia.


Both programs, DEVELOPMENT program Barcelona and DEVELOPMENT program Catalonia, start during the month of September and ends in the month of June, mirroring the regular school calendar.


The training sessions of the DEVELOPMENT program Barcelona for the U10, U12 and U14 stages, are on Sunday afternoons from 5:30pm to 7pm. On the other hand, for the U8 stage, training sessions are held every Friday at the same time, from 5:30pm to 7pm.
