CAMP INFORMATION

Each day, our package-focused sessions are named after world-renowned athletes, ensuring a unique and tailored approach. The camp is dedicated to delivering easily digestible training, performance, and biomechanical principles, offering a top-tier understanding of how to optimise power, speed and performance.

Additionally, there may be talks and workshops from special guests on a variety of topics, for example, nutrition, Q&As, and Olympic competition stories!

Most meals are served in the dining hall with a range of options to promote a healthy and balanced diet. Our fantastic in-house catering team are experienced in catering for different dietary requirements and lifestyle preferences. 

Refreshments will be provided throughout the day, with fruit, snacks and drinks also provided in our modern on-site accommodation in the evenings for campers choosing the residential option.


CAMP STRUCTURE 

To provide the students with clear daily goals, the camp will have session focuses inspired by world-class athletes, for example:

Athletics: The day will break down the intricate movements and techniques of the unparalleled Jessica Ennis.

Lower Body Power: Channelling legendary Olympic cyclist Chris Hoy, they will hone in techniques used to effectively power up your legs!

Speed: There will be activities based on speed and agility inspired by the legendary Usain Bolt.

Pure Power: Drawing from their own exceptional experience, the Great British Bobsleigh team will showcase the importance of all-round power, teamwork and collaborative skills.

By having the camp structured in this manner, students will gain an understanding of what they are developing, why they are doing the specific activity, and its direct application to their individual sport, be it swimming, athletics, football, or any other discipline.

 

Example day is subject to change. 

Please note, Monday (start day) and Friday (end day) are half days and have different day structures.
