BOCA RATON, FL — Boca Raton Football Club is proud to announce a new partnership with Barcelona Elite as Boca Raton FC will open their own soccer school powered by Barcelona Elite, named BE Boca Raton FC™ school .
After years in Europe, Barcelona Elite got its start in 2015 in Denver, Colorado with the opening of its first US school, thanks to the huge success due to its innovative methodology in the country.
“The partnership between Boca Raton FC and Barcelona Elite solidifies the work Boca Raton FC is doing in the community as a club in which your child will begin at youth level and work all the way to the professional level,” said Boca Raton FC President Douglas Heizer. “We at Boca Raton FC want to change the old methodology in which kids play in recreational leagues, play in high school and then play in college, where a very low number actually makes the jump to the pros.”
Boca Raton FC and Barcelona Elite will look to change the soccer structure in the United States in which they will offer a high-level soccer school that will teach children the fundamentals of the sport and will open doors as BE Boca Raton FC™ teams will compete in high-level tournaments around not only the United States but Internationally.
“The name Barcelona is internationally known in the soccer world for their championship ways,” added Heizer. “We are bringing Barcelona to Boca Raton.”
In addition to providing international experience, Barcelona Elite will incorporate a Technical Director who has been developed in Barcelona, and had extensive experience among first-class clubs at the European level such as FC Barcelona and RCD Espanyol of Barcelona, to the BE Boca Raton FC™ schools.
The technical director will train the local coaches with the same methodology that is used in Barcelona and, in turn, lead the entire global operation thereof of each school. Barcelona Elite will educate local coaches and supervise the trainings to ensure the proper functioning of all aspects of the academy.
“We decided to partner with Boca Raton because of the great opportunities an Established local Club can bring to the growth of the program,” said Barcelona Elite Managing Partner Jordi Blanco Moreno. “For us, soccer is the main focus. Having a good level of training for young players to grow is key to soccer success and for that, a great deal of seriousness is required. Together with the seriousness that we found from the outset with good synergies developments since the start of preliminary talks Boca Raton, it made us understand that a partnership with the club was the best choice for our first school in Florida.”
BE Boca Raton FC will soon announce dates in which parents will be able to register their kids and be able to come to an introductory meeting.
