BAA already has eight players residing in Barcelona, Spain as part of the World Sport Academy UECornella programme. 

But not everyone can afford to train at Barcelona’s home-base, so starting in September 2014, the World Sport Academy programme will be replicated in Bermuda.

It will be based on the exact model of the Barcelona program. 

BAA is hopeful this will enable players in Bermuda the opportunity for further development here in Bermuda in order to fulfil their ambition of becoming more competitive in football programs abroad.

Top youth

UECornella is a top three club in the Catalan region of around 1000 teams, is among the top 10 clubs in the whole of Spain and is considered one of the leading youth development programs across Europe. 

The football expertise in player development through proven successful structure and methodology within a very competitive top football environment has seen the club advance over 90 players into professional clubs over the last five years.

The programme is a yearly eight-month programme of four training sessions per week for ambitious players with the initial focus on players in U8, U10, U12 and U14 age categories, both male and female.

For further and more detailed information regarding the programme we will be holding a presentation meeting for parents at BAA clubhouse Wednesday, June 4 at 6pm
