Our methodology is base in the principal of solidness, this is the problem Nº1 in players today, lack of solidness with a very high number of unforce errors.

In order to achieve this goal, our method trains since the point of view of the game, where tactic is the main element and technic is a tool to develop the game and not an end by itself.

Understand the game with its situations and know how to play them and have a coordinated technic in all its principals is the base of our practice.

All together with the increase of physical skill and a good mind will make the player solid and more competitive.
