Global Sports Experience Network (GSEN) is a Rochester-based company that promotes education and the development of diverse personal capabilities in children and youth nationwide, through innovative programs that afford participants a unique, multicultural sporting experience both in the US and abroad.
Currently, GSEN has partnered with FC Barcelona in Spain to offer local and international educational soccer programs.
Destination Barcelona: Soccer Camp – Scouting Session is a local GSEN initiative to provide students the opportunity to learn FCB’s game philosophy directly in Rochester, MN, through training sessions that employ the same methodology learned by players such Messi, Xavi, Iniesta, Piqué and others. These programs use a series of progressive drills appropriate for each player’s stage and level of experience and knowledge. The camp/session is delivered by former FC Barcelona 1st team players and current coaches/scouts for youth talent. As a result, students will also have a chance to show off their soccer skills and get noticed by the scouts!
Destination Barcelona: Español & Futbol (DBEF) is GSEN’s comprehensive soccer and cultural immersion program, which takes place directly in Barcelona, Spain. In addition to extensive soccer training that is based on FC Barcelona’s style of play (known as Tiki-Taka), DBEF provides students the opportunity to learn Spanish -the second most important language in the world- via interactive teaching methods from world-class institutes that specialize in teaching Spanish, and to participate in cultural experiences that, undoubtedly, will leave a footprint in the student’s life.
Our goal is to equip our students with the tools needed to perform at the top of their game, both on and off the field, in today’s highly competitive world.
