Send your team to the ultimate sports retreat and tournament location
(Sponsored) Off-site camps and tournaments enhance athletic programs; these special events can change the perception of an athletic department’s programs and deepen a student-athlete’s commitment to their teammates.Schools that offer off-site events and camps can incentivize student-athletes to keep their grades and attendance up and reward those who fulfill the basic expectations required to stay in an athletic program.
For athletic programs looking to get started with off-site events or who are seeking a new venue, Feltrim Sports offers a can’t-miss opportunity that isn’t just exciting for the teams involved.
The resort-facility was founded with spring break in mind. “We find that in spring break, families want to travel and see their kids’ teams participate in games. Families complain all the time they have to spend time in traffic driving from hotel to venue, organizing buses, going back and forth. At Feltrim Sports, we eliminate that challenge,” said Garrett Kenny, founder of Feltrim Sports.
Tucked just outside of Orlando, Florida, and adjacent to the major theme parks, this venue is a unique place to carry out a tournament or camp. The all-inclusive campus provides inexpensive housing for athletes, coaches and fans plus everything else that they require during their stay.
What to expect from a Feltrim Sports stay
The main field and four practice fields allow small groups to practice together between games on the main field.
With stand-alone houses adjacent to the athletic fields, it’s easy to hold multiple practices a day while maximizing relaxation time. The facilities offer accommodations for sports such as American football, soccer, basketball and Lacrosse, and the four-star hotel experience of the on-site houses is just a 200-yard walk away from the athletic fields. Twenty-four homes are adjacent to the fields and another 130 are on property, within a couple thousand yards of the main field.
Athletes and coaches stay in houses with full kitchens, en suite bathrooms for each bedroom and a pool at each home. The houses can be configured in several ways, allowing programs to maximize the number of people staying in each house while also providing a space for a chaperone in each, if needed.
In the evening, a pool party can include platters of food delivered from the Feltrim Sports kitchen. When compared to a typical hotel, the cost is only about $25 per person per night for housing at Feltrim Sports, making it a very economical place to stay as a team. “If you want to travel and bring a group, we are the most economical way to do it,” Kenny said.
Daily menus are made with athletes’ needs in mind, and the reasonably priced buffet meals include protein, carbs and vegetables, allowing each athlete to get the fuel they need to perform at their peak.
Bring the whole family — not just the student-athletes
The visit isn’t complete without trips to some of the top vacation destinations in the world just a few miles down the road. Families of student-athletes going to these camps and tournaments are welcome to stay in their own on-site houses and spend the day seeing what Orlando has to offer.
The location is perfect for side trips to the major theme parks and outlet malls or for family members to spend the day exploring while athletes go to practice.
From Walt Disney World® Resort, to LEGOLAND Florida Resort, Universal Orlando Resort, SeaWorld® Orlando, gardens, zoos, outdoor adventures and more, Orlando offers entertainment for all ages and all tastes so that everyone enjoys their stay — not just the student-athletes.
