road to success

Applying the skills in the soccer world

Play against TOP SOCCER TEAMS

Competing against the best leads to refining skills and developing a successful playing style. All Kaptiva Sports Academy teams have the opportunity to play against top teams like Real Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, and more throughout the season. Players will participate in high level tournaments as well as participate in friendly matches with pro teams throughout their season.

MASTERCLASSES FROM PROS

Becoming a successful player not only depends on your skills but also on mentally understanding all the aspects of the sport. Guests have previously included recovery specialist, sports journalist, first division referees, highly regarded coaches, first division players, and more. They lead presentations to our players to help them better grasp the requirements of a professional athlete

ACCESS TO EXCLUSIVE EVENTS

Due to the academy’s prestige in the sector, our players have been invited to important football events for leading brands like Nike, Gatorade, and the MIC Tournament giving them exposure to exclusive events within the football industry. In addition, Barcelona is a hub for all major football events allowing our players to participate and be involved in the active football environment.

FOOTBALL CLINICS

Every season players have an international and national training clinic where they will be training under elite clubs or federations. These trips help players live first-hand the extensive football culture within Spain and Europe overall. While traveling to these cities, players will also have the opportunity to do stadium and museum tours alongside leisure and culture activities.

testimonials

“Matt experiences both on and off the soccer field have been more than a dream come true for him”

Mr. & Ms. Landry (KSA parents)

“Kaptiva has aided me in setting up my future by offering a wide variety of options for development and success throughout all different age categories.”

Aguistin Spaan (KSA Player)

“In the past year KSA has been a stepping stone towards success. They allow you to express yourself on the pitch as well as off the pitch. KSA gave me the opportunity to find out what level I’m at, measuring myself with professional teams around the world, getting to experience many different cultures from around the world.

Kwinda (KSA player)

“Amazing experience and quality program!”

Jose D'Oliveira (KSA player)

“Let me express my gratitude for Kaptiva, the whole team, thank you! Just dropped my son at the residence, his eyes were bright and so happy to be back. That’s truly all a mother and a father wants for their child, a happy soul. He is looking forward to achieving the best he can be. We were greeted by a wonderful team, a warm welcoming! Every little single detail in the residence was thought of carefully, one can tell straight away. Everything was perfect, and I mean it, perfect. And let’s get started with a brilliant year, lots of hard work, laughs and success to all ☀️⚽️💙”

Katia Miyazawa (KSA parent)

“My son has just returned from Kaptiva after 12 months there. It was the best experience of his life to date. He loved the school, the fellow students, the training and the games. I can not recommend it highly enough. Being from Australia, it was a difficult decision to make to send my 15 year old so far away but he was so well cared for and supported, and learnt so much about soccer, that I would do it all again if i could.”

Donns Cook (KSA parent)

“Our son Yannick joined Kaptiva Sports Academy in september 2019. Expectations were very high after he passed the trials, earlier in March. And these high expectations were all met! The programme was excellent, the young staff matey but firm. As his parents we felt comfortable to leave Yannick in their hands. Unfortunately Yannick tore his cruciate ligament early in the season, and we thought that that was the end of his Kaptiva adventure. Thanks to the tremendous effort of the staff, he had surgery by the best team he could get (the surgeons of FC Barcelona, thanks to Figi) and was coached throughout most of his revalidation, until Corona forced him to go home.  We have seen Yannick grow as a person, become mentally stronger. Last year turned out differently than expected, but we wouldn’t have missed it for the world. Thanks Kaptiva!”

Cynthia casper Hengstman (KSA parent)

“The Academy provides an opportunity for our son to pursue his dream of a Footballer, while continuing his schooling in an English environment at the same site with first class facilities. The Academy also provides valuable exposure and our son had the privilege to participate in the MIC tournament and to visit world class Football Clubs / facilities such as Valencia, Sevilla and Manchester (both City and United). Based on our experience, we strongly recommend KAPTIVA to anyone wishing to give their child the opportunity of pursuing their Football dream”

Caby and Lana Cabanelas (KSA parents)

“The bottom line is that if you are looking for an intensive soccer program in a safe environment (Sant Cugat is a great little town), run by caring, dedicated professionals, we would highly recommend Kaptiva Sports Academy “

Carolina Robbio (KSA parents)

“Kaptiva Sports Academy is highly recommended. Three years of training with the Spanish soccer way, improvement as a footballer is very good. Also growing as a person is something they all learn. We are very satisfied with the school, living arrangement and the soccer sessions…”
