HIGH PERFORMANCE ATHLETIC PROGRAM (13-18 YEARS OLD)
USA ACADEMIC PROGRAM (8th-12th GRADE)
BIGA (BARCELONA INTERNATIONAL GOLF ACADEMY) is the result of an agreement between SPORT BY FLAG, world leader organization in the formation of athletic talents, with its main headquarters in Miami (United States) and RC GOLF EL PRAT, an international reference for its facilities and pedagogical innovation.
RC GOLF EL PRAT is equipped with a natural environment of 120 hectares in Llorenc de Munt’s Natural Parc in Barcelona (Spain). In this idyllic landscape, Greg Norman designed 45 holes with a unique approach, fusing comfort — when adapting the court to each level and play style, with beauty — when integrating harmonically the seven fields with nature.
The hallmark of Real Club de Golf el Prat is their athletic excellence: it is the most award-winning club in Europe and has numerous active professionals in the different national and european circuits. A level of excellency ratified by the 10 times RC Golf el Prat hosted and organized the Spanish Golf Open.
A consolidated method to reach athletic success
In BIG Academy, academic success and development of athletic skills are only a minor part of the education received by our students. We inculcate the trust that allow our athletes to aim for any objective they set their minds on, while we provide the necessary tools to help them reach those objectives.
We understand that, for student-athletes to achieve their maximum potential, every aspect of human development must be taught and learned.
Our educational experience starts in 1978 in Barcelona (Spain), and has been constantly dedicated to the development of an innovative pedagogical method to teach "intelligent sport" all over the world: PLAN MARCET.
Thanks to this excellent learning formula, our method managed to achieve international success, and can be found today in 28 counties all over the world. Agreements with governments, sport federations and public and private institutions allowed more than 1.000.000 athletes and 3.000 trainers to train with PLAN MARCET in all five continents.
The objective of JAVIER MARCET, professional athlete since 1950, has always been to convey to young student-athletes that top-level competition can perfectly be combined with academic excellence.
