Michigan Thunder FC is delighted to announce, as the part of a new club developmental initiative, a partnership with ISL Futbol, the largest official partner of FC Barcelona in the United States. As part of the partnership, Barcelona and ISL will be coming to metro Detroit for an official FC Barcelona camp the week of July 10 to 14th, taking place at the Legacy Center in Brighton. Coaches from FC Barcelona will be teaching players the Barcelona methodology from their prestigious club. This will give players within the area the opportunity to work with some of the best coaches from Spain. This will also provide a fantastic pathway opportunity, where the best players identified at the camp will be invited to travel to Spain for the opportunity to train at the Barcelona headquarters.
Michigan Thunder FC players may use our exclusive promo code of FCBThunder17, which will allow players $30 off this camp.
Through this partnership Michigan Thunder FC playhers will learn FC Barcelona methodologies year round, and will have access to a number of programs focused on youth player development. Players will have the opportunity to learn the same values and drills that have developed such players as Lionel Messi, Andreas Iniesta, and Xavi. Michigan Thunder FC will also have exclusive access to be able to take part in team trips to Barcelona, taking in a 10-day soccer immersion of one of the largest soccer cities in the world.
Club Director of Coaching Ashley Wormall will also be working closely with ISL and FCB on the club's DNA to provide the best training methods and developmental plan for all players from 3-18 years of age. This will be in line with FCB's best practices and player development plans, which have produced players like Lionel Messi, Andreas Iniesta, and Xavi.
