Welcome to the infamous Deep Dish Portugal Camp!
Praia Da Rocha is fast becoming a beach volleyball mecca for players from all around the world. Deep Dish have been running the Portugal camp since 2013, seeing thousands of players from over 20 countries participate.
Join over 100 players for a week of fun, sun, sea, sand and of course beach volleyball. You will participate in our camp timetable and work with our world class coaching team.
We welcome all levels and ages of players, including complete beginners as whatever your level, we have a group for you.
During the camp you will be led through a series of training sessions by our top class coaching team. Each session will have a clear focus and has been created by our head coaches to ensure that you leave Portugal having learnt new techniques and tactics to take back with you.
Our head coaches consist of Olympians and World Tour players/coaches from all around the globe. Meaning you will receive a training programme that has influences from many different cultures and experiences.
We cater for all levels of player at the Portugal camp and pride ourselves in the fact that sessions will aim to push you to become better players no matter if your a beginner or elite player.
We value an open relationship between our players and coaches and encourage players to ask questions and challenge the coach to ensure that all players are challenged correctly.
You will always train in a group of similar ability to yourself.
TOURNAMENTS & SOCIAL
We put a big emphasis on creating better volleyball players at the Portugal camp. But by the end our main goal is to create a big Deep Dish family!
Each afternoon during the training camp, we will host a variety of different style tournaments. You can play with your regular partner or team up with someone else from the camp.
After that you can grab a drink from the court side bar and watch one of our daily exhibition games, our coaches and visiting players will be going head to head.
The evenings will consist of a mixture of social drinks, dinners and organised parties. Including, fancy dress night and the infamous Deep Dish pool party and awards night! Don't forget, you can always get an early night so you are fresh for the morning yoga sessions.
With over 20 nationalities participating, and an age range of 18 - 60, we pride ourselves in being one of the most diverse beach volleyball camps around.
WHAT'S NEW FOR 2020?
Over 1500 people have attended the Portugal camp over the past 6 years. As always last year was a huge success, however we are constantly looking to make the camp even better. Check them out below:
On the first 4 days of the camp, participants will train twice per day, with a short break in between sessions. The first session will be technical focused, allowing our coaches to work through key parts of the game at a pace that allows players to learn and practice with little focus on competing. The second session will then allow the players to implement this into a game based session (timetable below).
We have added in a mixed pairs competition.
Q&A Session - Participants will have the chance to question our coaches. Whether it be about the game, volleyball careers or lifestyle.
Improved lounge area.
Better prizes & giveaways.
