Frequently asked questions
At Clifton College we have House Staff with experience in looking after the welfare of young people in a residential setting. We will make sure your son or daughter is introduced to others on the course when they arrive, and we can arrange for them to share a room with others if you would like (prior notice needed). We will make sure that they are interacting with others on the course, both in the house and whilst they are being coached, and that they are eating properly at breakfast, lunch & dinner!
Everyone who attends the Sports Courses will leave us with a fully detailed Player Report from the coaches, detailing what they have been doing during the week, and aspects on which they need to work to improve their game.
Most of our coaches who deliver our courses here at Clifton College have experience as professionals at some of the highest levels of their sport. We have former England International hockey players, former Premiership rugby players, and former County cricketers. All of our head coaches are fully supported by talented and qualified coaching teams, allowing your children to learn from the very best.
All attendees will first of all be placed in age appropriate groups upon their arrival within their respective sports. All attendees will then be monitored and placed in groups suitable to their abilities, judged by the coaching team, with the aim of challenging them throughout the week.
We will have a variety of activities on each evening, including Cyber Cafe time, games competitions, and the oppotunity to relax with your new friends. Obviously there is a need for rest after such an intensive day of coaching, and the coaches will insist that you are ‘taking it easy’ to save yourself for the next day! We will have seminars with professional Nutritionists, advising you on how best to manage your diet, and also professional Physiotherapists, giving you advice on how to warm-up and warm-down properly to help you avoid those sprains & strains!
