Nordic Camp 2012 in Denmark

In the period 1-5 August 2012 the Badminton Europe supported Regional Project Camp was held in Frederikshavn, Denmark. The thirty top U15 players and the six coaches from Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Denmark attended the five-day training camp that took place at the sport center Arena Nord, known after it’s very good training and living facilities.

The training sessions were focused on the individual, physical and match training, as well as on the technical and tactical aspects of the game. The camp had a good mixture of the hard focused training and the ‘social time’ for the players and coaches. As a part of the social activities, the participants went to the beach where they could swim, sunbath and play beach-games. During the training breaks the players and the coaches followed the Olympic Games in London. There was a nice atmosphere and a lot of cheering for the Nordic athletes compeeting at the OI.

Players and coaches look forward to meet again in the upcoming tournaments.
