Whether you want to spend holidays practicing your favorite sport or you aim to improve your skills in a friendly but rigorous atmosphere trained by coaches (coaches of training centers and centers of up-and-coming players) you will find the best conditions and formula that perfectly suits your expectations.
Based on the American basketball camps models, the teaching team composed of state-certified coaches, helps you to progress. We propose 4 hours and half to 6 hours of practice each day depending on ages and aspirations.
The focus is set on the work of individual essentials, pre-collective essentials (reduced team: 2 against 2, 3 against 3) and collective 5 against 5. A significant part of our training focuses on the improvement of physical skills and qualities as mental preparation.
Our educational contents are studied and adapted to the age and personal goals of our trainees. Great attention is given to the recovery and prevention of injuries under the responsibility of our physiotherapist.
What is it? After the morning session each trainee has the opportunity to work with the coach of his choice on an aspect of his game that he wishes to improve. Those one-hour sessions take place in individual coaching or with reduced team (3 trainees maximum). We use the method BASKETBALL TRAINING CONCEPT (find all the information on this method on the website HERE)
Professional players visits
During the stay our trainees get the opportunity to exchange with professional players present on the camp by challenging them (contest) and by taking advices from them.
