Estudios académicos

Academic studies “University of football ACATEC”.

TRAINING OFFER: “MENS SANA IN CORPORE SANO”.

A player’s life is very short, there are very few professionals who continue their activity after the age of 30, and there are many who see their career dramatically truncated by an injury. So what do they do? It is very important that the players have a profitable and interesting professional outlet for them, that is not only to be able to become a coach of some team.

In ACATEC academic studies are not only highly recommended, but are mandatory and have various study options depending on the age, country of origin and ability of the student.

Any study is good if it serves to complete the training of the player and turn him into a complete and prepared person for the future.

PRIMARY, SECONDARY

ACATEC has an agreement with a school close to SEDE. The students benefit from a flexible schedule that allows them to attend all the training sessions, as well as a close relationship between the teachers of the School and ACATEC tutors, who jointly watch over the correct academic development of each student. For both Spanish and international students and can join at any time of the year.
