Pillars

Our camps are based on these four pillars

BC8A1054

Fun

Fun is why we all started playing sport and it's too often the thing that gets taken out of sport for young people.

We ensure that fun and enjoyment is central to the experience of every athlete.

Challenge

Growth only happens outside our comfort zones.

We put our athletes in challenging situations to foster growth.

Support

Challenge without support breeds anxiety. 

We support each athlete, at their current level, as they're challenged to level-up.

Connection

One of the greatest values in sport is the opportunity to be connected to a team.

We foster connection and positive relationships between coaches and athletes.

Safety

Every athlete deserves a safe environment to learn and grow in.
