TOVO Academy Barcelona is dedicated to changing the way we develop footballers. To that end, we continue to work with dedicated and innovative coaches eager to rethink the way we train youth footballers. Our coaching courses are designed for passionate soccer coaches willing to invest in their own professional development.


There is no greater satisfaction than guiding young people as they explore their potential. You know this as an educator and you feel this as a coach. We must delve deep into talent develop so that we are prepared to nurture talented, intelligent and responsible athletes.

Welcome to TOVO Academy Barcelona.

Coaching football is so much more profound and demanding than just teaching a player to pass or shoot the football. If football were merely a collection of technical skills our job would be easy and many would be master coaches. But talent development reaches far beyond skill instruction. To be an excellent coach requires becoming a proficient educator and a positive role model.

The TOVO Coaching Course is designed to take trainers on a journey – one that goes outside the typical subject matters of federation licenses. A journey that asks us to think beyond the status quo. We will explore the ideas of practitioners and leaders beyond the pitch so that we may consider the best practices available to us on the pitch. Ultimately, we will share with you our method to develop players of great cognition, competence and character.
