These activities aim to enhance agility, communication skills, and foster a strong camaraderie among participants.

Training Session for Your Sport(s) of Play (1.5 hours)
The second half of each session allows participants to split up and dig deeper into the sport(s) of their choosing. Our expert coaches are ready to guide you through sport-specific drills, techniques and mini-games tailored to your athletic preferences.
