Sport School

Train year round at the BEST Centre
Join a small, international group of swimmers and triathletes who combine their swimming career with outstanding coaching, facilities, intensive language study 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 our own outdoor 50m pool, our students will pursue their swimming and triathlon career to the highest levels possible.

From September 2017, the focus is on Training and Learning: intensive English classes alongside swim and triathlon training. From September 2018, students will be able to take advantage of a British education in an international setting, studying a BTEC in Sports and Exercise Science. Students will also be able to take level 1 and 2 coaching qualifcations run by the US Swimming, giving them an internationally recognised coaching qualification and the opportunity for professional employment in the future. The swimming and traithlon programme at the Academy will prepare every athlete for a successful senior career in their sport.

The accommodation


Accommodation will be at the residence, a short walk from the pool. The atheltes will be in shared rooms and all meals will be taken here. Join us for a month or a year and come and live and train at one of the best training centres in Europe.

The residence is located close to the picturesque harbour area, with its shops and cafes and there is a supermarket, pharmacie and banks close by. The beaches around the town are some of the best in the Mediterranean.

The training

Swimmers and triathletes will have access to some of the best training in Europe. The training facilities include a heated outdoor 50m pool, gym, crystal clear open water swimming, running track, soft running trails, legendary biking, and two good climbs close by: Randa and San Salvador.
