Sports Camps Opportunities at SOEC

Residential Centres offer fantastic opportunities for all sports clubs.  The immersive qualities of focussing on your sport for several days can really step up motivation, strengthen team camaraderie and enhance performance

Many clubs and teams, from football to orienteering, rugby to archery, and hockey, martial arts and rowing, already come to us to make use of the grounds and near-by venues for training and for international events.

SOEC can also support your club’s aims with added-value activities. Some clubs work with SOEC tutors for team building and to strengthening team cohesion.  Others use our challenge events to invigorate competitive spirit.  In either case, clubs can make use of SOEC’s wide range of on-site tutor-led activities such as rope courses, problem solving challenges and zip wires.

We can also provide experiences to complement skills development for your sport when the weather is against you. For example, when snow conditions let you down, ski clubs might undertake a course in our grounds interspersed with archery, simulating the challenges of the “biathlon”.
