Jimmy has travelled to Sydney to be assistant coach for FC Barcelona Escola soccer camp. He also worked as an assistant in the FC Barcelona Escola Camp in Canberra in 2017
He was given a three hour coaching induction into FC Barca Escola academy and how they train and educate their youth to seniors.
During the Five-day camp, Jimmy was involved in working with children aged between 6 and 11 each morning; and then ages 12 to 16 in the afternoon.
He worked closely with a Barcelona coach who provided a session plan that Jimmy has to implement with his players.
'The session plans included the Barcelona methodology and was one of the most amazing experiences I have had as a coach,' said Jimmy.
Jimmy has worked previously with FC Barcelona Escola in Sydney in 2017 , he will be taking a coaching role once a week in addition to his motivate football sessions. He is always looking to expand and gain further knowledge in how to improve his drills which is the reason why he took the role. It has always been a dream for him to work in Spain and learn their style of football, their methodology, taking on this role has been a dream come true and his very thankful, grateful to all parents and players who have believed in him as a coach over the years.
Jimmy has also worked recently with Real Madrid Foundation clinics in Canberra where he worked 5 days with Real Madrid Youth Academy Coaches. He found the coaches very humble and always willing to provide advice to the coaches to help them improve as a coach. Jimmy attends as much coaching development opportunities as he can as he believes we are always learning as coaches and to gain further knowledge to pass that on to coaches and kids for further improvement in the Canberra Football community.

Our academy hosted the Celtic International Football school holiday camp over two days.
More than 90 players attended the camp, aged from 6 to 18-years-old. The camp was a huge success for both the players and coaches.
The academy learned some great skills and lessons from the Celtic coaches and have been implementing their drills with our players, which has been really effective.
We are excited to announce the Celtic team will be back again in 2017. Registrations will open in February 2017. Stay tuned for more details.
