WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?

Promising juniors players of all age groups. Players must show they have the drive and motivation to improve and train hard.

 

Players can train solely with EBA or combined with Scottish squads or school performance programmes. Players should play in junior/senior clubs and tournaments in addition to training.

 

We judge players on physical strength, determination and tournament results. 

HOW TO APPLY

ELITE PROGRAMME

Sponsored to train with EBA

Group and individual sessions

Suitable for national and top county players

Group training sessions

​Elite players train weekly in groups of four working with a coach and are mixed in with older county players to gain more experience. Training focuses on hard multifeeding routines designed to push players physically.

 

Individual coaching session

Players train individually with a coach to perfect technique and shots. Working one to one allows the coach to focus individually on players rather than being spread out. 

Senior league and tournament experience

We offer elite players places in our senior league teams and pair players up with coaches to enter our EBA tournaments so they can gain experience at a senior level.

 

Strength and conditioning

We include personalised strength and condition as part of the elite programme to ensure players can perform at their peak.
