We are delighted that Bernat has agreed to be Head Coach for our Football Camp students in Southampton this summer.
He has played for various teams in Spain, the last of which was F.C. Vilafranca. Unfortunately his career as a footballer was cut short by an injury. However Bernat was so passionate about the sport that he continued his career in the field of Sports Science and physiotherapy. He holds a BSc degree in Physiotherapy from the University of Girona;
a BSc degree in Physical activity and Sport Sciences from the University of Barcelona and a postgraduate Diploma in Myofacial Pain. He also has a Certificate as a Strength & Conditioning Specialist (NSCA-CSCS).
He is currently the physiotherapist of the Vilafranca Academy Football Club First Team in Spain.
Bernat will use his coaching experience to plan and deliver training sessions to our Football Camp students including a weekly sports science workshop. During excursions Bernat will accompany the students on various Football Stadium tours.
