DISCOVER
OUR FOOTBALL
UNDERSTANDING

Our commitment at Iniesta Academy is to offer customized training programs that cater to the specific needs of individual players and training groups.

We understand and respect that every child has their own learning pace, and our goal is to create a positive learning environment that maximizes their potential.

Our aim is for each player to improve their understanding of the game and enhance their skills, ultimately fostering effective and long-lasting growth. To improve decision-making in our players, there are three aspects we always keep in mind:

The Ball

The Teammates

The Opponents

The relationship between these three elements is fundamental. To achieve this, we offer various levels of training, each with specific objectives tailored to the needs of our players:

4 to 7 years old
Focused on the BALL

Our program for children aged 4 to 6 focuses on developing ball skills, introducing players to the fundamentals of ball control and building a positive relationship with the ball. Through simplified games and exercises, we encourage players to interact with the ball and foster a sense of discovery.

7 to 12 years old
Focused on the TEAMMATES

We prioritise teamwork in our program, teaching players to work with their teammates and develop a playing style that emphasises combination play. Our aim is to help players develop the skills necessary to work together effectively on the pitch

7 to 14 years old
Focused on the OPPONENTS

Football is an opposition sport, so our program focuses on teaching players how to play against opponents. We help players develop their ability to respond to challenging situations by providing various exercises and drills.

8 to 14 years old
Focused on GAME SITUATIONS

Our advanced program is designed for players with high tactical understanding and technical execution. We expose them to various game situations to improve decision-making in environments that closely resemble competition

WHAT DO THEY
SAY ABOUT US?

Alana’s mother

As a parent,
I am very satisfied!

I found out about the Iniesta Academy through a classmate of Alana’s brother. He trained at Andrés Iniesta’s academy and was very happy! In fact, everyone who trains here says they enjoy it and my daughter started to take an interest in football.

That was three years ago and she is still enjoying and learning here. She always says the coaches are interesting and she enjoys learning, she has never wanted to miss a day. As a parent, I am very satisfied!

After every football lesson at the academy, I ask them how it was. Not a day goes by that they don’t say they had a good time. They tell me about the fun they had with their group mates and what they learnt from the coaches. So I am convinced and happy that this is a good place to be.

Ippei’s father

The quality of practice here is high

We decided on this academy because it has the stamp of a player like Andres Iniesta, who is known worldwide and is technically very good.

We decided that if we let him join at an early age, he would have the opportunity to practise the basics, such as the touch of the ball, looking at and analysing the game situation around him and making quick decisions.

I am very happy with the Iniesta Academy because each of the things we practise in training is based on a clear concept. The coaches are very specific about each training and how to determine the best play in each case, as well as what needs to be improved each time. I think the quality of the training here is high!

My son (Ippei) looks forward to coming here every week and I know that he is happy with his development at the Iniesta Academy.

Keita’s mother

My kicking and control improved a lot after joining.

From an early age, my son has always felt passionate about football and when I found out about the Iniesta Academy through social networks, I immediately knew this was the right place for him.

When we came to experience it, they were training different concepts. I knew that once my son was part of the academy he would progress well and improve every day, so I decided this was the right place for him.

He has improved a lot in terms of kicking the ball, control, etc. and they also often tell him that he should keep his head up and play, to see everything that is happening around him. I am persistent, but that is normal now and we like it. We are happy to have them join the Iniesta Academy.

We are very happy!
