Academia de Futevólei - Albufeira Praia Sports Club

Its history: In Albufeira, it was between 2008 and 2009 that the "Summer Academy" was introduced in partnership with the Municipality of Albufeira, by Hernâni Baptista and Carlos Coimbra.

This is a sports academy, open to all those who want to improve their physical condition and start practicing this sport.

As the academy developed, it was decided that every summer there would be training sessions and tournaments, aimed at boys and girls aged 14 and over. In the beginning, training sessions were given by the respective coaches: Carlos Barreto (Baba), Vitó and Hernâni, and more recently Alexandre Oliveira is one of the coaches.

There has been an evolution, namely the summer sports tournaments have given way to a project that aims to remain all year round.

Today: The Albufeira Footvolley Academy is now called the Albufeira Praia Sports Club, and the long-term aim is to include more sports besides footvolley, such as beach volleyball and beach tennis.

Those interested will thus have the opportunity to train at Praia dos Pescadores in the heart of Albufeira. The activities are led by teacher Hernâni Baptista.
