Barcelona United Soccer Club
Columbus, Ohio’s Premier Youth Soccer Club



Our highly anticipated winter training programming is back and now open for registration.  The Winter School of Excellence is a 6 week training program specifically designed to provide players with an extra opportunity for continued, long-term technical development. The Winter School of Excellence is our primary training program during the winter months. All Barcelona United players are encouraged to participate to continue their development during this pivotal time of the year. This training program is also open to players that are not current members of Barcelona United. The Session 1 program consists of:

-- Team Training (1x per week) - (Thursday Jan 12, 19, 26, Feb 2, 9 & 16 between 5pm & 9pm)

Teams will continue to build off concepts in the fall and stay connected throughout the winter months in preparation for the spring season ahead.  Players are welcome to join a session that are not on the same “team” or from an outside club that may have a desire to play for the club.  (Thursday sessions will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis, overflow sessions may be held on Monday or Saturday.)

Technical Training w/ Coach Steve or Coach Toni - (Tuesday Jan 10, 17, 24, 31, Feb 7 & 14 between 5pm & 9pm)

Individual Ball Mastery skill work training with a specific coach in the club. These sessions are purely based on the individual player's technical ability with the ball.  Working on skill work, moves, 1 v 0 and some 1 v 1 settings.  Players will not be playing small sided games during this 60 minute session but rather focusing on skill, agility, quickness with and without the ball that will improve their over technical ability.

Striker Training w/ Coach Detzi - (Sunday Jan 8,15, 22, 29, Feb 5 & 12 between 3pm & 7pm)

The main focus of the camp will be improving the player’s ability to strike the ball properly and cleanly in order to score goals!  Players will learn the proper techniques to shoot and finish around the goal and will get plenty of opportunities to practice their techniques during shooting and finishing activities.  This program will benefit all players, no matter normal position or age group since striking the ball is a very important technique for every player at every level.

-Saturday Speed, Agility & Quickness (SAQ) Training w/ Coach Hannah - (Saturdays Jan 14, 21, 28, Feb 4, 11 & 18 between 11am & 1pm) 

The training sessions will focus on speed development through drills that emphasize foot speed, first step explosiveness, and acceleration. The sessions will also focus on agility and change in directions associated with soccer. The sessions will also include soccer conditioning and some core strengthening and polymeric exercises to help with overall athletic development.
