Live and Train with us

Swim year round at the BEST Centre
Join a small, international group of swimmers and triathletes who combine their swimming career with outstanding coaching, facilities and educational or coaching qualifications in the beach town of Colonia Sant Jordi, Mallorca.

A residential training programme

At the BEST Centre Academy, the education and sports training are tailored to the individual needs of the athlete. With a small, independent school running a flexible timetable and with our own outdoor 50m pool and tennis courts, our students will pursue their swimming career and tennis career to the highest levels possible.

Students will be able to take advantage of a British education in an international setting, with an emphasis on learning languages and experiencing in a new culture. The swimmers will also be able to take level 2 and level 3 coaching qualifcations run by the IOS which will give them the opportunity for professional employment in the future. The swimming and tennis programme at the Academy will prepare every athlete for a successful senior career in their sport.

The Sports Academy at the BEST Centre will be an environment 100 percent committed to developing swimming and tennis talent at every level and that also produces outstanding academic results.


The first group of swimmers will join the BEST Mediterranean swim programme. This is a programme designe for swimmers aged 16 or over who would like to swim in our outdoor 50m pool year round, with the option to take coaching qualifications, language classes or A levels in an online environment. The swimmers will live in apartments close to the pool.

See all the information on the BEST Mediterranean page.

Once this programme is running, we will expand the offering to include education for those aged 13+. This programme will have a residence for the young athletes to live and a fully accredited academic programme for IGCSEs.

For information, see the Academy page.
