Pro Coaching at RCD Espanyol
Pro training was led by good-natured, knowledgeable coaches from RCD Espanyol who got on like a dream with the students.
Drills included quick attack v defence situations which gave students chances to hone their skills against 1,2 or 3 opposing players.
With some sessions seeing training next to the pro side.
‘The coaching standard was exceptional, the facilities – how often do you get the chance to train next to the [RCD Espanyol] first team?’ – said Mr Kershaw.
Pitch Hire and Self-Led Training
When away from football practises led by professional coaches, Mosslands enjoyed self-led sessions on a state-of-the-art pitch.
They had time to cement skills learned in pro coaching sessions, prep for upcoming matches and even played 7-a-side matches including students, staff and our Tour Guides on a Cuidad Deportiva Dani Jarque pitch.
FC Barcelona Nou Camp Stadium Tour
A school football trip to Barcelona wouldn’t be complete without a tour of the Nou Camp Stadium.
Mosslands enjoyed a tour around the world-renowned home of the 5-time Champions League winners.
They walked out on to the pitch, sat in the players’ dug-out seats, went to the 1st tier, 2nd tier, 4th tier, saw the media area and Lionel Messi’s Ballon d’Ors and Barcelona team trophies in the club museum.
‘The Nou Camp Tour was amazing’
