Coach training

Football evolves day by day and the training of coaches is increasingly important. RCD Espanyol actively believe in training and updating knowledge, and that is why the club give all coaches and football lovers the opportunity to learn.

At the Coaching School, the teachers are responsible for methodology, the engine of grassroots football.

For years our youth setup has been a point of reference at European level, and we believe that it is time to make our way of working better known.

The training offered by the club is very broad, so that everyone can choose the way that is most beneficial for them.

Types of coaching training

  • Annual presencial course

    RCD Espanyol have created the "RCD Espanyol de Barcelona Academy" course, with the aim of showing the most identifying features of the club's academy football more well known. It is an eminently theoretical and practical course that pursues the desire to train coaches who can learn the values ​​and working methodology of the club.

    This objective is met by providing the different coaches with the tools and methodology to improve, using the methods employed by RCD Espanyol's grassroots football system for their own teams.
