U19 Players in Barcelona: Closing Report

Our General Manager’s final day in Barcelona before departure back to Jamaica, as the boys, coaches, managers and administrators get into the daily schedule of activities.

It began with 7:30am breakfast, then 9am arrival at the football field complex for the first session of training. The boys returned to rooms to change, freshen up and rest before 12noon lunch. This was followed by 1:30-2:30pm Spanish Classes in the Conference Centre then a 20-minute walk to the Complex for afternoon session #2 between 3:30-5:30pm.
The Physiotherapist visited to attend to the injuries of the players.

Back to base after dinner at 7-8:15pm, followed by photos, interviews and/or meetings close the day before sleep as usual. Administrators usually meet to plan, exchange ideas, review activities, analyze and coordinate what needs to be done, altered, improved or discarded. Another routine day in Barcelona would be the last for our Jamaican chaperone, as the 6 players stay in Barcelona for at least another month in hopes of obtaining contracts.
