Group Selection


Camp participants will be asked to fill in a group allocation form prior to the camp. This allocation form will give us an idea of your level and will allow us to allocate them an initial group. The first session in Portugal will be used to make any initial changes to the groups to ensure players are being challenged at the right level. Following every training session throughout the week, the coaches will meet and identify any player that needs to move up or down levels. Alternatively, players can sign up as a group of 6.




Training Philosophy


Each training session will have a clear focus that pushes you to learn and improve. Our crack team of coaches are on hand to take you through well structured sessions that not only feel like a good workout but also with key learning points and tips.
