Cyprus Training Camp 2017

on 27 February 2017
During half term, the Elite squads of Hillingdon SC travelled to train out in Cyprus.  The squad of 35 swimmers, 3 Elite squad coaches and 2 chaperones, stayed at the Park Beach Hotel and trained 400m along the beach at the Limassol Aquatic Centre which was home for the week!  The swimmers were challenged to swim 11/12 sessions across the week, as well as their land work.  Although the week started off on a wet and windy Monday morning, spirits were high and as the week progressesed the sun began to shine!  All the swimmers got through serious work and the high level of focus from all swimmers was fantastic.  Everyone thrived being in not only an elite enviornment but a fun one, and building into the Middlesex Youth Counties, it is just what the team needed to follow on from a great training period after the Christmas break.

The Park Beach Hotel provided the team with fantastic food and the staff were very helpful in catering for individuals.  The team meetings were held in a great reception area along with our quiz night which was a camp favourite, especially watching Matt squat as many times as possible in a minute!  Watch our for a few viral videos!  

On the Thursday the group took the opportunity to catch a short 15 minute bus ride down to the Harbour, and managed to see the start of the Cyprus festival.

The coaching staff all commented on an excellent week of training, from the facilities to the swimmers themselves, the behaviour and professional manner of the the group was excellent.  This was a fantastic experience for all, especially as the majority of the group had never been on a camp before.

Our thanks goes to Sports Abroad, Park Beach Hotel, Limmassol Aquatic Centre and the Cyprus Tourist board.                                               click for more photo's
