Organizing events and bringing all kind of people associated with football in Barcelona has always been a very important point for us. Specifically in late March and early April, we have organized two amazing events: one for players and one for coaches.
A total of 43 players from our school in Japan, divided into 3 teams (U10, U11 and U13), participated in the Easter tournament “Mare Nostrum” that was held in Salou on the dates from 25th to 27th March. Participating and competing in an international tournament of this level was an unforgettable experience for players. In addition to the tournament, the teams made several training sessions and friendly matches with local teams in order to fit themselves.All turned out to be a great success: the players could acquire new knowledge and experiences for their own development, as players and as persons.
One more year and it is already our 4th edition: on the dates from 4th to 7th April, took place the international Ekkono course in Barcelona.
The course has been attended by a total of 20 coaches from United States, France, Holland, Sweden, Finland and Spain. It was held over 4 days and consisted of various theoretical and practical sessions about the Ekkono methodology.
Moreover the participants had the opportunity to attend an extra education about injury prevention, ran by experts from the University of Vic. Finally, to complete the course, coaches attended to a training session of the youth categories from a first division club.
We are very proud to see how our Ekkono methodology it’s known more and more for coaches and players and expanding for different countries.
