Centre d’Alt Rendiment Sant Cugat (CAR)


The High Performance Sports Centre is an organization that supports the sport to make it competitive internationally, optimizing technical and scientific resources of the highest quality. To this end, it has the necessary means for the integral training of the athletes.

The CAR considers the academic and human training of each person as much or more important than the strictly sports and for this reason it offers to the athletes the necessary tools for their educational development. Athletes can attend from high school classes and the Secondary School is located in the same facilities of the CAR, with a highly qualified faculty.

The CAR has a residence for pre-match meetings. There are a lot of  national teams and teams of different sports (soccer, handball, volleyball, hockey, tennis, swimming, gym- nastics, taekwondo, etc.), whether Catalan, Spanish or from outside the state, carrying out their training stays in the centre.
