About Basketball Training
The basketball training begins on Monday at 9:30.
Once the players have been divided into age groups, the coaches define training groups in accordance with the basketball level they show during a basic training session and practice games.
In doing so, they ensure that the members of each group are of the same standard and that a high level of competition exists within their group.

About Language lessons
For both English or Spanish lessons, on the first day of the course, students take a written test and oral interview with the teacher responsible for level placement. The test and level allocation process lasts for a total of 1.5 hours.
Once students have been allocated their language level, they are separated into class groups and provided with course books/materials.
Language lessons are available from Beginner to Advanced levels. Lessons are in small groups with a maximum of 7 students per classroom to ensure that students receive personalised teaching.
From Monday to Friday participants have full-board meals consisting of daily buffet-style breakfast, lunch and dinner. At the weekend players have breakfast and an evening meal at the hotel and are provided with a packed lunch to take on excursions.

Sportsman’s breakfast: fruit, cereal, yogurt, milk, ham or cheese, bread roll
Lunch: self-service with starter (salads), first course (pasta, rice, soups), main course (fish or meet) and dessert (fruit, ice-creams, cakes)

The extra cost depends not only on the accommodation price but also on the activities scheduled for the extra days, as participants cannot be alone in the hotel.
