HIGH PERFORMANCE CENTER

 
 

Terrassa FC HPC International Immersion Program uses evidence-based practices aimed to maximize individual performance resulting in well-developed, intelligent, employable professionals.

A professional athlete’s career is short and his/her career as an ex-professional is much longer. To address this fact of life, we implement individual strategic plans for our student-athletes to reach their peak potential both academically and in sport to be fully prepared for life and not just the football pitch. The end goal of our development program is not to sign players for our main squads. Instead, we utilize standards and assessments to evaluate and qualify potential professional athletes and sporting professionals for future work either as players or in the different branches of the field.

Our program prepares our players to successfully compete in this highly competitive environment.  No amount of friendly games, non-federated tournaments, or time at the gym can prepare a player better than this environment.

This competitive environment, combined with our approach, gives our young men and women the ability to improve strength, agility, endurance, nutritional intelligence, confidence, mental toughness, sports intelligence and overall health.

The program at Terrassa FC places the international player (male and female) with local players in its regular academy teams. This non-segregated model ensures the player gets all the same development benefits a national player in Spain receives.

The Academy provides a unique, systematic development process that elevates players' skills to the necessary levels to compete in Federated soccer in Spain, including top tier levels. Terrassa FC is also home to its professional Women’s team, competing in 1st Division National supported by one of the best women’s development schools in Spain.

Our High-Performance Training Academy has 113 years of experience addressing all tactical and technical aspects of the game to advance the amateur and professional careers of young men and women. Terrassa FC Academy  is home to some of the most successful players in the world including but not limited to:

  • Xavi Hernandez, “el del Terrassa”

  • Vicky Losada

  • Marc Bernaous Cano

  • Pier Luigi Cherubino

  • Cristian García Ramos

IMMERSION IS KEY TO SUCCESS

 
 

Research shows that in sports, like in education and many other fields, the one thing that works and makes lower performing players better is immersion. Right now, many people are trying to rethink and reinvent football development, to get talented players in lower performing leagues to the level of their European counterparts. But there is one thing nobody tries, despite lots of evidence that it works: desegregation.

We are not an international academy simply using Terrassa FC’s fields. The Terrassa FC academy and international academy are one in the same. Unlike most international academies worldwide, we do not use third-party staff to train and to develop our players.

Our international players train and compete alongside our 1,200 local players in the

appropriate federated categories, receive the appropriate supports for successful transition, adapt to the demands of European football and enjoy the same benefits and access to advancement opportunities based on their performance.

No other place in the world can offer young footballers the development opportunity that the demanding Spanish youth development system offers.

Our international students are immersed in a competitive system with relegation and promotion, which starts in the Under 8 category and continues into the professional categories. Our players have the opportunity to compete in a league with over 30 games during a 10-month league where every game matters.

Unlike most international academies worldwide, we do not use third-party staff to train and to develop our players.
