BEST Mediterranean

Live and train year round at the BEST Centre.
Join an international group of swimmers from around the world, aged 16 and over, who live and train in the beach town of Colonia Sant Jordi, Mallorca, and swim at the outstanding facilities of the BEST Centre.


Need a change of scene? Thinking about a gap year or transition year? Need to give your swimming a boost?

The programme is ideally suited for swimmers that find themselves at a crossroads in their career or need a change of stimulation for a year. Swimmers of all levels, aged 16 and over, will be coached by the experienced staff at the BEST Centre and will have a swim, land work and competition schedule that is ideally suited to them. In addition, we will offer coaching qualifications, language classes and A levels.

The BEST MEDITERRANEAN programme fees are 650 euros per month, which includes the monthly training fees and accommodation in shared apartments in the town.

As well as training in an outdoor 50m pool year round, with gym and land work on site, swimmers will live in apartments close to the pool, sourced and approved by us. We have video analysis on site and will talk with each swimmer to help you understand the importance of nutrition and the mental skills of racing.

The BEST Centre has welcomed 35 Olympic and World Championships medallists since opening its doors in 2009, and you will be able to learn from some of the best in the world when they join us for their club and national team training camps.

Plus Coaching qualifications, language classes and A levels

The swim programme will be the focus of the year, but in addition, we offer American swim caoching qualifications for levels 1, 2 and 3 through the American Swim Coaches Association ASCA, giving you the professsional qualifications you need to start a career in swim coaching.

We will also offer language classes in Spanish and English for those wanting to become fluent in another language.

For those still in education, we offer A level courses through our education partner Managed Education Services or in online classrooms through a number of online schools.

The BEST MEDITERRANEAN Swim Programme will be an environment 100 percent committed to developing swimmers at every level, to produce outstanding results.
