At Gold Coast Sports Academy (GCSA) we are dedicated to the growth of our athletes both on and off the field. Our structured, targeted instruction methods, developed by top coaches, help to focus skill development based on individual need. While providing premier sports instruction we also ensure a positive environment to foster social development and sportsmanship.
Our athletes finish our program having not only improved in their sport, but growing as young adults. This balance of skill and social development through sport is what sets GCSA apart from other premier sports camps.
Gold Coast Sports Academy staff is comprised of experts in their sports who have played or coached at the highest level. Most importantly our coaches and staff love sharing their love of sport with athletes no matter what age or skill level.
No, There are no tryouts and we strive to meet your child's athletic ability and ensure that every child grows as a person and as an athlete.
Every athlete will participate in an initial skill evaluation on their first day and a final skill evaluation at the end of the week. You will be provided with a written overview of what they have learned and points of emphasis moving forward. These "evaluation activities" are COMPLETELY low stress and occur within the context of the day.
Every child is provided with a hot lunch and the option to substitute that lunch. They will also be provided one or two snacks during the day. Please let us know if there are allergies or other dietary considerations.
Transportation is available for an additional cost.
If my child goes to Gold Coast Sports Academy for more than one week in the same sport, will they learn new things?
YES! If you choose to attend camp for 2 or more weeks, our staff will develop an individual development plan based upon the progress your child has made.
Yes. We have a health director (an EMT or Nurse) on site during the entirety of the camp day. They are there to deal with any illness or injuries that might arise during the day, and to coordinate with you regarding any medical issues that are important for Gold Coast Sports Academy staff to monitor while at camp.
There are mandatory water breaks, and rest and restore periods built into each activity, as well as during the course of the day between periods, every day.
