Most students at the Academy will come from overseas.  It is our intention to build an multi-national and multi-sport environment where young people from around the world come together to live, train and learn.

The BEST Centre Academy has its own boarding house, the Residencia, which will be as much a part of daily life as the classroom and the training ground.  Students will make life-long friendships at the Academy with happy memories of time spent at the Residencia.  As athletes you will support and be supported as you pursue your sporting ambitions both during your time at the Academy and in the years that follow.

Our goal is to have a group of young people who understand each other, are tolerant of differences, who celebrate and commiserate with their team mates, and who are better prepared for their role in wider society because of their time living together at the Residencia.
