FAQ

What is B-Elite?

B-Elite is a team of UEFA licensed coaches who prior to coming to the US were coaching for FC Barcelona’s youth academy in Spain. We left our roles in Barcelona on good terms to start an elite soccer school in the states for boys and girls, ages 5-17. We believe that soccer is growing in the US and that our knowledge and experience will be well-received.

How is B-Elite different?

B-Elite is unique than the majority of youth programs offered in the US. All of the sessions are coordinated and supervised by the technical director. There is a technical director at every school that is relocated from FC Barcelona’s youth academy to be a part of your community. The technical director will assist the local trainers with coaching, and it is important for the technical director to know all of the players and design the training sessions focused on the main needs of each group.

Overall, we want to provide a personalized training environment where we can focus on helping kids improve in every aspect of the game. Specifically, the technical directors in each school will not only know every player in the academy, but will also meet regularly with their parents regularly to discuss progress.

Additionally, by applying our global methodology these players will perform better in many aspects of soccer but mainly in game comprehension, technical/tactical training-game transference, focus, and intensity. We understand and have experienced coaching top global talent for each age group and provide goals to help young players strive to be the best that they can be.

I, Sergio Torán Ruiz, am the technical director for Denver.

Can you tell me more about Barcelona-style methodology?

Barcelona-style methodology at B-Elite Academy is first-class technical coaching, learned from extensive experience among top clubs in Europe such as FC Barcelona and RCD Espanyol of Barcelona.

Our methodology is taught in a high-intensity environment with very little stoppage throughout the session. Due to the intensity and repetitiveness of the exercises, players’ concentration and decision-making improves over time. We as a coaching staff prepare and guide our players through a series of modifications of play that will help the player better understand the exercises, coaching points, and thought-process behind each exercises and to fully grasp the training sessions.

Additionally, best learning experience focuses on improving each player in a competitive training environment. Players are selected according to the criteria of the technical department, in order to ensure that all program participants train and interact with players of the same level.

Lastly, we incorporate our main training values; respect, effort, commitment, honesty, teamwork and solidarity to create a holistic development environment for our players. We, at B-Elite Soccer, work hard to achieve an environment where structure blends with fun in order to increase skill level, and more importantly create more thoughtful players on and off the field.
