Methodology

The methodology applied in the Benfica Elite Training Camps will be the same that SL Benfica Football Club uses in the training of its soccer athletes and that guarantees the sustainability of its professional squads.

Through specific training that Sport Lisboa e Benfica will provide, you will be able to develop your technical, tactical, physical, and psychological skills.

Aspects like running technique, relationship with the ball, tactical circulation, and attacking and defensive game principles will be worked on daily in both an individual and collective context.

The training schedules will have a duration of 4 hours per day (Monday thru Friday), and will be developed by SL Benfica’s Youth Football Club coaches accredited by the Portuguese Football Federation (FPF) and UEFA.

There will be 3 categories (under-14 to under-19), each having specific technical-tactical training. In addition, you will also have the possibility of being observed and evaluated by Sport Lisboa e Benfica’s Technical and Scouting Departments.

Goalkeeper training is also available during the camp.
