UE Cornella has established itself as a feeder club for Barcelona’s La Masia academy and they are getting closer to promotion to Spain’s second tier for the first time

Ask your average football fan how many clubs there are in Barcelona and they will probably say two; Barcelona and Espanyol. Ask any Catalonian, however, and they will more likely say three.

While Lionel Messi’s Blaugrana have stagnated in La Liga this season, and Espanyol plunged back into La Segunda after 26 years, there is a third team – UE Cornella – on the rise.

Academies we have visited, observed and learned from:

A 'youth professional' is a player between ages of 6 and 18 who has been identified by professional club as someday having the potential as making it as a full-time professional player. These players are trained, day-in and day-out, using the best at latest development methods, philosophies, exercises and techniques by some of the best youth trainers in the world.

Over the last 17+ years YPT has traveled extensively across Europe to clubs such as Real Madrid [Spain], Club Brugge [Belgium], Inter Milan [Italy], SL Benfica [Portugal], PSV Eindhoven [Holland], Manchester United [England], AC Milan [Italy], Ajax of Amsterdam [Holland], Bayern Munich [Germany] and others for the sole purpose of observing and learning how young players are trained and developed at the absolute highest level of the sport. We have been extremely fortunate to doors opened to us that don't normally get opened to outsiders and we feel a strong obligation to pass on as much of what we have learned as we can to thise who can use it most: Americas better young players and coaches.

I really think that the reason for Joseph's success on the National Team and in Europe is because of the good training habits he has been exposed to at YPT.

Your training is top notch. The kids I talked to really liked it and would like for you to come back.

From all that I can gather, YPT appears to be THE best camp in the USA. Two players on my team who attended the camp in 2007 told me that the quality of training and players at YPT is miles ahead of any other camp they've been to.
