Scottish Summer Development Camp
This year the Scottish Summer Development Camp formerly known as the Academy Camp has been split by gender and will form the basis of our updated pathway for boys and girls. At the Under 16 and Under 14 Scottish Level this pathway is one in which we wish to develop all the players so long as they are motivated, are strong and are strong enough swimmers to do two hour sessions (with breaks – especially for the younger ones).
BOYS attend Saturday the 4th of August and Sunday the 5th of August
GIRLS attend Saturday the 18th of August and Sunday the 19th of August
at the National Swimming Academy, University of Stirling, Stirling. FK9 4LA.
Additionally, each camp is one of a series of 4 camps for the Under 14s and Under 16s Scottish Saltires Squads – required for being selected to the Scottish Inter-Regional squads for Under 14s and Under 16s. More information about the updated performance development pathways will be released soon – as such each camp will be open to all that can swim and eggbeater.
Each camp will provide top quality training with experienced coaches, setting them on the pathway to become elite players of the future.
Beginners will learn and improve core skills including body positioning, catching, passing, types of shots, defensive body position, releases and more.
More advanced players will be perfecting these skills and learning advanced positional specific skills.
Each camp will provide training and habit development around mental, lifestyle and physical elements of elite athletes. Delivery will be both classroom and pool based.
Places are limited, so sign up quickly!
