The Scottish Volleyball High-Performance Beach Programme recently completed its second winter training camp, this time at Top Training Tenerife in Tenerife, Spain, and the team is feeling confident ahead of the upcoming season. Led by Head Coach and Programme Lead Felipe Humana-Paredes, the camp focused on developing technical skills and offensive and defensive systems, as well as game and tournament management.
Alongside training and match play, the athletes also attended evening education sessions covering video analysis, team culture, competition education, and season planning, which will help them continue to grow and develop in the coming years.
Humana-Paredes expressed his satisfaction with the week-long training camp, saying, “I’m extremely pleased with how the training week in Tenerife went. There was valuable technical and tactical work that our athletes will be able to build upon to truly make 2023 a successful season.”
The Scottish Volleyball High-Performance Beach Programme is looking to build on the success of previous seasons and has its sights set on the 2026 Commonwealth Games. The winter training camp in Tenerife was a crucial step in this process, and the team is already planning for open try-out dates for both the High-Performance Beach Programme and the Elite Youth Programme in the coming weeks.
Blair Pettigrew, Head of Pathways, added, “We’re delighted with the players’ attitude and drive during this training camp. It was a chance for them to work on their game and develop their skills to the next level.”
The Scottish Volleyball High-Performance Beach Programme is committed to providing its athletes with the tools and support they need to succeed on and off the court. The winter training camp in Tenerife was just one example of this commitment, and the team is looking forward to what the future holds.
