Kaptiva Sports Academy is an elite residential football academy located in Barcelona & Madrid, in Spain, that has been developing U16 and U18 players since 2012.
The academy’s main goal is to offer a top inclusive annual program to talented players from all over the world, helping them reach their full potential through a fully integrated football program.
We believe that training, studying and living in a foreign country is an invaluable experience that helps shape young men into not only better players, but also better people. The benefits of such an experience will be embedded positively into that individual.

It was a wonderful year for Charlie. The best guidance, discipline. Tuition. And made great life friends. Wonderful coaches and staff
Kaptiva Sports Academy is highly recommended. Three years of training with the Spanish soccer way, improvement as a footballer is very good. Also growing as a person is something they all learn. We are very satisfied with the school, living arrangement and the soccer sessions. There will always be something to improve on but in the big picture we are very happy with Kaptiva! The players live their dream and hopefully when they do their football dreams too!
We started our relationship with Kaptiva 4 years ago when my son joined the Barcelona Escola that Kaptiva operated in Florida. When they invited him to join their elite soccer program in Sant Cugat, Barcelona we felt that because of my son's young age at the time it would be best for us to move with him, which was a major family decision. After his first year in Kaptiva Barcelona we can say that the overall experience has been a very positive one. We have appreciated the dedication of the coaches and been impressed with all the support staff, as well. The high school program through Nebraska University has worked well for our son. The fact that the school itself has students from over 40 countries and Kaptiva from over 20 has been a huge learning opportunity to understand other cultures, religions, etc. which has enriched his experience. The bottom line is that if you are looking for an intensive soccer program in a safe environment (Sant Cugat is a great little town), run by caring, dedicated professionals, we would highly recommend Kaptiva Sports Academy.
My son has just returned from Kaptiva after 12 months there. It was the best experience of his life to date. He loved the school, the fellow students, the training and the games. I can not recommend it highly enough. Being from Australia, it was a difficult decision to make to send my 15 year old so far away but he was so well cared for and supported, and learnt so much about soccer, that I would do it all again if i could.
Kaptiva has proven to be a great choice for our son to grow and develop both as a Football player and as an individual, and we have noticed visible improvement over the course of this year. Further, he has received tremendous support from all staff in an atmosphere that is very much like a home away from home. The Academy provides an opportunity for our son to pursue his dream of a Footballer, while continuing his schooling in an English environment at the same site with first class facilities. The Academy also provides valuable exposure and our son had the privilege to participate in the MIC tournament and to visit world class Football Clubs / facilities such as Valencia, Sevilla and Manchester (both City and United). Based on our experience, we strongly recommend KAPTIVA to anyone wishing to give their child the opportunity of pursuing their Football dream.
