Coach Academy: Alicante
25 March @ 10:00 am - 29 March @ 5:00 pm
Description & Content
We are heading out to Alicante for 5 days packed full of coaching, designed to upskill you as a beach volleyball coach, get your sand legs ready for the season and to be heaps of fun too! The camp is designed to be a fusion experience-you should learn lots both as a player AND a coach. You’ll get chances to just play, chances to just coach, and chances to dip in and out of both.
We will be running a blend of theory and practical seminars: around 4 hours of practical sessions per day plus one 90-minute theory session. There will be a coaching seminar run by Olympic silver medallist Javier Bosma (learn from the best), and we will provide you with loads of materials to take home and use in your club.
Coaches will get a chance to be both players and coach throughout the week. Your playing level and coaching experience doesn’t matter; we guarantee that you will feel welcome and you will learn lots! Every coach will get the opportunity to deliver a full session to their peers, which will then receive feedback from both the participants and the coach tutor.
The trip will finish with a tournament on April 29th. Each coach will be assigned a team to work with throughout the tournament. They will be asked to scout potential opposition and draw up game plans, as well as sitting down with teams to reflect on their games.
Throughout the week you will have the chance to sit down with one of the tutors to discuss your coaching plans and to provide support and guidance with your future roles in coaching.
We suggest that coaches arrive on the evening of 24th March.
Coaches can leave on the evening of 29th March (flights after 7:30pm) or on March 30th.
The nearest airport is Alicante Airport. It is around a 20-30 minute taxi from the beach. There is also a bus that takes a little over an hour.
Coaches are responsible for finding their own accommodation. There are lots of options out there on AirBnb, Booking.com and at hotels. If you would like to share with someone/a group, get in touch and we can link you with likeminded coaches.
The camp costs £350 for the 5 days. This includes all the course materials, court hire, unlimited free play when we aren’t learning, AND free access to our online seminars for a whole year and a 30-minute check in with one of our tutors every 3 months.
