If you’re looking for a memorable and rewarding experience for your son or daughter, then why not thinking about sending them to a basketball camp with English lessons in the UK.

Basket Camp in the UK logo

Overview

  • Training: 15 h/week
  • English classes: 15 lessons/week
  • Allowed age: 11 to 17 years

Our goal is to provide children with enough skills and abilities so that they know their favorite sport in depth and, in addition, acquire a complete knowledge of English, it is the perfect tandem.

And if you don't want English classes, you can opt for the basketball-only program that doesn't include English classes and dedicates more hours to training.

By focusing on a single sporting activity, the youth also show their progress in that activity during their stay at the camp.

All this in a safe environment and with very close supervision. This camp has been held in England for almost 30 years and is a unique experience of cultural exchange and personal development for young people. That is undoubtedly the key to its success and this, added to the international environment, immersion in the language and the coexistence of hundreds of young sports lovers, makes it a perfect plan for the summer.

Training

  • Hours of training per week: 15 h/week
  • Languages spoken by coaches: English
  • Training levels offered by the camp: Advanced, Intermediate, Beginner
  • Number of children per group: 10

Our basketball programme is designed for students who are passionate about this sport and want to improve their skills. This includes beginners to the sport.

The Exsportise coaches are experienced professionals who love their sport as much as the people they train. The coaching focuses on physical fitness, agility and learning the required skills. The coaching takes place from Monday to Friday, for three hours a day.

Through theoretical and practical sessions, students will acquire a comprehensive knowledge of basketball techniques and tactics. Each week the students will be assessed in order to track their progress.

Language Classes

  • Class hours: 3 hours/day
  • Class days: Monday to Friday
  • Organization of groups: By level

During their stay at Exsportise, students combine basketball coaching with English classes. They attend three hours of English lessons per day, Monday to Friday.

One of the great advantages of this camp is its international nature. Students come from a wide range of countries and so outside the basketball coaching and language lessons, the young people can also practise their English with their campmates. The English classes are accredited by the British Council, which guarantees the high quality of the teaching.

Before the camp begins, students take an online test so that their level of English can be assessed. The test consists of a questionnaire, written exercise and a comprehension test.

In addition, during their first English class, students take an oral test to determine their level of fluency which the teacher will use to determine which group they will be placed in.

For students who do not take the online test, they can do this on their first day at the camp. In this way the teachers will have all the information they need to ensure the child is put into a group which best meets their language learning needs.

Camp Schedule

A typical day at the Exsportise camp begins as follows. At 7.30am the students get up. Breakfast is from 8.00, and at 9.00 they join their classmates in the meeting room to get into groups and go to their English lessons which begin at 9.15. Classes go on until 12.45 and lunch is at 1.00pm. After the meal there’s a period of free time until 2.15pm, which is when the afternoon coaching session begins. At 6.00pm students have dinner and after that and until 9.00pm-10.30pm (depending on the student’s age) the young people are free to relax and enjoy themselves with their campmates.

The camp organises two full day excursions each weekend. The most popular days out are to theme parks, where students have a fantastic time full of thrills on the rides and roller coasters or just enjoying the company of their new friends.

There are also excursions organised to nearby towns and cities such as Brighton, Oxford or Cambridge, in this way the young people can discover more about the British culture.

All outings are supervised by camp staff and the young people are given a packed lunch on their days out of camp.
