With all that Spanish sun, sea and sand, students could hardly be blamed if they mistake their school sports tours to Platja d'Aro for a summer holiday break and not an educational experience! With Barcelona and its world-famous Olympic stadium a mere 90-minute drive from this wonderful coastal resort town, Platja d'Aro is perhaps one of the most inspiring destinations young athletes can go.
A cosmopolitan resort with a wide expanse of sandy beaches, Platja d'Aro is situated on Spain's Costa Brava.
With access to world-class sports facilities for football, hockey, rugby, basketball, netball, lacrosse and more, school sports tours to Platja d'Aro prove to be an enlightening and enriching experience.
With this focus on diversity- both in terms of sports and nationalities - the resort is the ideal location for students who wish to experience playing away from home and acquire familiarity with players of other nations.
Year-Round Training for Young Athletes Platja d'Aro's idyllic location gives it the kind of Mediterranean climate that can be enjoyed all year round.
This means matches and tournaments can be arranged with different teams from different parts of the world at various times of the year.
Superb sports facilities are also available and can be utilised on specialised school sports tours- there is no lack of training sites and fixtures.
With the gentle climate, winter breaks no longer need to interfere with sports training! Another advantage of school sports tours to this Spanish resort is that aside from the world-class sports amenities there is no shortage of training professionals to augment whatever school sports program may be applied.
Skilled professional referees and coaches are also available to assist with training sessions and matches, particularly for the country's beloved football.
The experience of playing against local Spanish teams, English teams and teams from other countries helps deepen the learning experience- allowing students to build confidence, understand other cultures, improve communication skills and, of course, strengthen their spirit of sportsmanship.
A Well-Rounded Experience at Platja d'Aro Coaches, sports educators and physical education teachers understand the value of well-rounded school sports tours, which is why Platja D'Aro trips are also rich in other cultural opportunities.
Excursions to museums and historical sites are available to enrich students' skills in non-physical education subjects such as languages, history, art and geography.
Plenty of entertainment options are also on offer- after all, all athletes, young and otherwise need breaks to keep up their motivation!
