Camp Waterford Sports Academy

A great opportunity for teenagers to develop their sporting knowledge and skills

Our goal at the Camp Waterford Sports Academy is to stimulate a love of sport in young teenagers, regardless of their sporting background and skill level. We aim to help young athletes learn to make individual progress and most importantly get the opportunity to play the sports they love. The sports played each day will be coached in a way that allows the athletes to gain valuable lessons as to the physical, mental, technical and tactical skills required to achieve in sport.

The Camp Waterford Sports Academy will be a great experience for a teenager that is keen to participate in different sports, is looking to improve their skills, get fit, make new friends and have fun! 

The sports academy will follow the ethos that has made Camp Waterford so successful; we will provide quality coaching and guidance in a safe, fun environment. Emphasis will be placed on providing young athletes with knowledge and skills to enjoy sport and grow as a sportsperson, in addition to encouraging sports leadership.

Throughout the week athletes will be given the opportunity to play a variety of different sports of their choice. They will be taught skills, tactics, rules and more importantly given the chance to play in a relaxed, informal setting. If they feel comfortable, they may want to try and coach an aspect of the sport to the rest of the group.

Each day will finish with relaxation and recovery, including ‘chill out time’ in Newtown Swimming Pool. Rest and recovery strategies are extremely useful to students who have a hectic school life or need help performing at their best, during exam years.

We hope our young athletes will leave the camp with new techniques, energy, new friends and new goals.
