How It Works
Our coaches are experienced in instructing players with different language capabilities, ensuring they get the best out of their sessions. English is taught based on the successful CLIL model by highly qualified native English language teachers. Students’ language skills improve using a sports-motivated environment to keep them fully engaged in language learning. Players will live, train and socialise with native English speaking players resident on camp, ensuring they are immersed in English culture throughout their stay.
Strong players are challenged tactically, technically and physically, while developing players will learn to master grip, spin, movement, power and consistency. Coaches working on a 1:6 ratio will use demonstration, practice and feedback - including video analysis - to improve technique. Players will learn about all aspects of athlete development including nutrition, hydration, physiology, psychology, preparation and organisation.
All students leave the camp with their English workbook, a proficiency certificate and an individual assessment with advice on how to further develop their language skills. On court, each player receives a personal assessment from the coaching director, together with a development plan.
