The FCBEscola Toronto is the third FC Barcelona Academy in Canada after the great success of our Vancouver and Edmonton Escolas. Its aim is to teach Canadian players the basic concepts of football in line with the FC Barcelona methodology. As of 2017, we have four Escolas in Canada; Vancouver, Edmonton, Toronto, and Ottawa respectively. In April 2017 we will be opening our fifth Escola in Montreal, Quebec.
Our development will empower them to successfully overcome future sporting challenges while simultaneously instilling the personal values which are so representative of FC Barcelona such as tolerance, respect, solidarity, friendship, fair play, integration, effort and happiness.
All aspects of our academy, including the technical development, coaching staff, training routines, and personal growth will be aligned with the FC Barcelona methodology which has brought so much success to the club in the recent years. The players will train under the same vision, mission and focus as the club’s youth teams. The FC Barcelona philosophy will be implemented on all the features of our program.
Bringing this academy to Toronto is a milestone in the ever growing football culture present in the country and we hope to contribute to the development of the sport by introducing players to our particular style of play which has become an essential piece of the club’s identity.
