What age group are the courses open to?
From 7 years to 18 years although we have introduced camps for children aged 4yrs to 7yrs at specific times of the year.
Who are the courses aimed at?
Each camp focuses on player development from relative beginners to intermediates and beyond. We incorporate core skills and key elements that will assist players to the next level, whether that may be at school, club, JDC, JAC or JRPC. Our group sizes are kept as small as possible so that our expert coaching staff can cater for each players individual needs more efficiently.
How do you group players?
We split players into groups according to age and ability based on information supplied. Coaching staff do make changes where necessary based on players development based on continuous assessment.
