Barça has not only been concerned with developing its pool of players, but also coaches. Thus, the club created the FCB Coaches Academy with the aim of offering to the coaches a reinforcement of their knowledge about all the elements and aspects involved in the management of teams at a pedagogical, technical and tactical level. FCBEscola's technical and methodology head, Isaac Guerrero reaffirms the objective: "we want to provide them with tools for their work as trainers and for the knowledge of future responsibilities they might have as coaches and heads of international projects of the Barça Academy".
The FCB Coaches Academy, in its first edition, was aimed at the group of 26 new coaches who passed the selection tests of FCBEscola, as well as those of professional sections of the club, FCBEscola Basket, formative and amateur football, technical scouting and the technification centers spread throughout Catalonia. "It's 100% focused for schools. To be able to explain the new bases of the model, given that everyone who arrives here does not know 100% of the things that takes place in Barça and with this formation, they know where the club is going methodologically ", explains Marcel Sans.
Pere Gratacós, one of the heads of the project explains that "the FCB Coach Academy coaches course is an explicit request of FCBEscola, because they need to train new coaches and educators to cover the different activities they carry out throughout the year. They explained their needs to us, we analyzed them and studied them, and the training course is aimed, specifically, at possible trainers and educators of the FCBEscola, who have already passed a previous selection process, with the intention that they can develop different tasks, such as director of a Barça Academy or coach of a Barça Academy.
