Training Camps

Our Six magnificent venues offer contrasting opportunities for School, University & Club Sides looking to fine-tune their troops in an intense environment. Three of the five are custom-built options, combining the very best of local training facilities to create some unique offerings.

Introducing: Training Camps

 

Pre-season is a vital part building of a successful team and a Training Camp is an ideal way to bring a squad together, fine tune the fitness and skills and put a marker down on which to develop. 

We have several hand-picked locations where we can get to work to create bespoke itineraries to ensure your team gets the maximum benefits from your trip away. 

We're a strong believer that hard graft in the gym, on the pitch and downtime in which to develop player relationships and squad unity will put you in great shape going into the new season. 

Our destinations are designed by the elite players amongst our ranks for the aspiring elite players, creating a professional environment in order to get the ground work done and get that all important edge over your opposition going into next season. 

The facilities combined with our expertise in travel logistics mean we can put together an all inclusive package that takes care of accommodation, transport and the important training, that will offer huge pre-season benefits to our clients.

Why not tie in your 2019/20 pre-season camp with England vs Italy at St. James Park?

Malaga

Tried and tested by Northumbria University Mens Rugby Union. Torre del Mar has been proven to be an outstanding destination. The BUCS Super Rugby side had a brilliant Six days in the heat as they prepared for the arduous season ahead. The teams programme was filled with S&C & pitch sessions as well as multiple sessions on the glorious beach which is on the doorstep on the accommodation. A trek up in the Nerja Mountains is a worthy team building activity and great way to round off the tour. 

With support of the Spanish Rugby Federation we have been able to gain insight and knowledge of the local rugby and are able to set up fixtures against suitable opposition if needed.

Spala

Our Poland Training Camp is our spit and sawdust option. The venue made famous by the Welsh Rugby Union training camp ahead of the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand in 2011. This Ivan Drago from Rocky IV style camp is not luxurious, it is not pleasant, it is simply an intense training venue where teams can focus on results. If you are looking for a hardcore, Rocky-esc training camp, Spala is the place to go. The rough and ragged surroundings and facilities will certainly be a test of character.

Based on a 22,000m2 woodland site, the complex emanates an atmosphere of sport and health. Regular visitors include Olympic Track & Field Athletes and the best of Poland's sports stars.
