The Campus includes two daily training sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon with Graduated coaches and internally formed under the criteria of the Andres Iniesta 8 Method. At midday, the kids will have manuallities session with the recreational monitors.
The work will b edone in reduced groups of 12-15 students with the aim that participants assimilate the basics of the game that characterizes Andrés and all his way of playing. The training level applied by the management of the Academy will respond to the four general principles of AI-8 Method:
The positional game: Understanding the game of position allow us to develop the ability to anticipate situations and optimal management of space-time as key to the formation of a smart player.
Possession of the ball: Allowes to develop the capacity to receive, hold and pass the ball, keeping control without loss and generating advantage over the game.
Pressure to Possessor: "Owner of the ball = Owner of the game", answers the mental capacity to react to the change of "role" attack-defense-attack by pressing for the loss as a determining factor of success.
Game Progression: We can develop the ability to eliminate opponents and get ahead to create situations to shoot, either in the quick ball passing between attackers or by individual skills.
Each of the General Principales of the AI-8 method, outlined above, will be broken down methodologically in order to meet three ways of learning:
Individual capacities: Provide tools to consolidate a correct decision making process and precise execution of the response generated.
The concept of the game: Increase the understanding of the game by the student with the objective of assimilating the basics of the method.
The Game System: Induce the transfer of individual abilities of the player and his playing approach to the competitive reality, ie, the specific work done in "their" position in the field and interaction with peers within a defined tactical structure.
