Training

  • Training hours: 3 hours a day (Monday to Friday)
  • Surface: Regulation basketball court
  • Groups: 6 children per group
  • Training levels offered: Beginner, Intermediate

The main objective of the coaching methodology used at the Pyrenees Basketball Camp is that participants work on improving their technique while they play. The coaching combines theory classes with dynamic exercises and drills to help the young people get the most out of this fantastic sport and also to develop their physical fitness.

The basketball camp takes place on a regulation basketball court. Students do 3 hours of basketball coaching from Monday to Friday. The coaching is led by specialist coaches and monitors, and combines technical, theoretical, and physical instruction.

Participants don’t need to bring any equipment to the camp, as they will be supplied with everything they need.

Language Classes

  • Available languages: English, French and Spanish
  • Hours per week: Monday to Friday, from 10 a.m. to 1:15 p.m.
  • Organization of groups: By level and age

Language immersion is one of the main aims of this camp. Students can take classes in English, Spanish, or French from Monday to Friday, from 10 am to 1.15 pm. Students are placed in classes according to their age and level. Each lesson is based on the curriculum of Trinity College London. The teachers are qualified and experienced and the students are continually assessed.

On the first day, the students will carry out a test to determine their level and will then be placed in a group that corresponds to their ability. Over the next few days, they will be assessed to ensure the group they have been placed in is the right one for their level. If necessary, they will be transferred to a different group. Learning materials are provided.

At the end of the course students will be given all their completed work, a certificate of attendance with their final grade, and a diploma.

In addition, if they so wish, the participants will also have the opportunity to take the official examination of Trinity College, London.

Camp Schedule

The camp programme is less intensive at the weekends. The youngsters will enjoy a varied social programme, with workshops, activities, sports, competitions, gymkhanas, games, swimming, movies, discos, multiadventure, among others.

The camps also organise optional excursions for an additional cost of 95€. Examples of these outings include Port Aventura and the Barcelona Experience Tour.

The organisers will help to ensure that the young people enjoy every moment spent at the camp, and they’ll also give them the chance to learn about the culture of the area they’re staying in.

As part of the social program, as we mentioned above, the camp also runs workshops. These include karaoke sessions, DJ skills, photography and video production, dance, magic skills, make up, and cookery. Please note that the workshops are organised subject to demand and some may be changed or cancelled, depending on numbers.
