Come as a team!
Welcome in Bordeaux
Since spring 2008, the Cap Girondins training centre has given foreign teams the opportunity to take customized soccer skills courses, Bordeaux style. These official Girondins de Bordeaux courses represent the fruits of 30 years of youth coaching expertise.
Our courses for foreign teams give coaches a chance to introduce their young players (age 7 to 16) to “Bordeaux-style” training. These official Girondins de Bordeaux training programmes are shaped by our considerable expertise in refining young players’ skills. The courses take place at the FC Girondins de Bordeaux training centre, ensuring perfect conditions for footballing development.
The aim of these courses is to put our unique Cap Girondins training methods at the disposal of teams from elsewhere in the world, young players keen to enjoy the experience of training at the home of the Girondins. Visiting clubs are free to tailor their training schedule to cover those areas that they would like worked on as a priority.
A friendly match is also included in the schedule, usually midweek, to give all participants a chance to see how much progress they have made. It’s also an opportunity for young players from overseas to compare themselves against a local team of a good standard. This is a key part of the course, as it allows the players to put the lessons they have learned during the week into practice.
