"We focus on development without compromise," Rui Guimarais, Founder, Barcelona California
Our Mission Statement
We at Barcelona California are dedicated to the quality development of both the player and the person.
We strive to educate and train youth in teamwork and individual excellence. We aim to develop players and equip them with the skills necessary to advance in competitive soccer.
We take considerable pride in providing an environment that is fun, safe, and friendly, and that nutures player confidence, positive self-esteem and good sportsmanship. Our aim is to provide a fertile environment for learning and improving the skills of players who have demonstrated the desire and potential to succeed in a more competitive setting.
We choose not to compromise development for the sake of immediate results. Success will be measured not purely based on wins and losses, but based on improved fundamentals, skills, tactical knowledge of the game, teamwork and the ability to play in more than one position. We believe that a focus on development without compromise, will lead to results that can be sustained in the long term.
