When the girls arrive, their skills are evaluated even further to place them into smaller groups of 15 girls with a similar level of play.
The girls train from 17 to 21 hours per week and work on technical and tactical skills. They also learn about the importance of mental strength as they improve their skills and reach more advanced levels of play. The 17 to 21 hours are broken up into two training sessions and one workshop or technical lecture per day. Elite players also work on their physical conditioning and attend gym sessions together to improve their overall physical fitness.
The camp takes place in the quiet town of Seva, which is located in Montseny Natural Park, just one hour from Barcelona. The girls reside in a beautiful four-star hotel called the Montanya Hotel & Lodge which is located right next to the training facilities.
