Performance Coaching in the Costa Blanca

 

We offer Performance Coaching in the Costa Blanca. It is home to some of Spain's most exciting rock climbing. Add to that its blue seas and skies, white beaches and terraced fruit groves set against panoramic mountains and you simply want to come here for your next climbing trip.

To get an idea of what a climbing trip in the Costa Blanca with Rock & Sun looks like, watch our video here.

Read more about climbing in the Costa Blanca in this article: Ten reasons for a Costa Blanca Climbing Holiday.

 

The Performance Coaching Course will start with analysing your current climbing style and movement pattern. Your instructor will watch the footage with you and will point out where your potential for improvement lies. Together you will then focus on breaking down any 'bad habits' you might have and replacing them with more efficient climbing techniques. Besides improving your climbing technique and movement skills, the Performance Coaching Course gives you the opportunity to work on your mental approach to climbing. This could include topics such as dealing with fear, disappointment and failure, or applying mental tricks to set yourself up for success. Other topics that will be addressed towards the end of the week are developing successful strategies for onsighting as well as red-pointing.

 

After this intense week of coaching in the Costa Blanca, you will have the skills and knowledge to self-coach and improve your climbing grade by applying the techniques and exercises practiced during the course. When you feel you have reached the next plateau in your climbing (a grade you don't seem to get beyond without coaching), then the next course to book on to is Performance coaching level 2.

 

What's included in this climbing course?

 

• 5 days climbing coaching and instruction, including video analysis

• 7 nights shared accommodation (Room 1:2 max)

• Transportation for the week, including airport transfers (conditions apply)

• All climbing equipment supplied

• Max 4:1 climber to instructor ratio

 

Accommodation and Transfers

 

You will be staying in a beautiful, fully equipped and spacious villa with swimming pool just a five minute walk from the typical Spanish village Parcent, in the Xalon Valley. The Xalon Valley is just inland from Benissa and has some amazing crags, such as Pena Roja, Alcalali and l'Ocaive. The villa is about 30 minutes from the town and coast of Calpe. The Xalon valley is famous for its high quality wines - you will be surrounded by vineyards, as well as olive trees, orange groves and almond groves. Parcent has a range of bars and restaurants (among which the best Paella restaurant in the area!), a minimarket, bakery and pharmacy, all within walking distance of the villa.

The villa has a total of four bedrooms and three bathrooms, a beautiful garden with different seating areas and an outside BBQ. Its fully fitted kitchen, lounge and dining area have the character of an original Spanish farmhouse. There is WiFi in the villa. For photos, click on the Accommodation tab above.

 

We offer one free transfer from Alicante Airport to your accommodation (which will be the start date of your holiday – normally a Saturday) which departs from Alicante Airport at 2.00pm latest. To take advantage of this service, and in order to minimize waiting times, please aim for midday arrivals.

On departure day (the end date of your holiday - normally a Saturday) we offer one free transfer to Alicante Airport which departs the villa around 9.00am. We therefore suggest to aim for midday departures.

If you wish to travel to the accommodation independently, or if you can't buy a flight within these hours, transfers may be arranged, subject to availability, on alternative days/times. Contact us for more information.
