Spring training sessions (2025 and 2026) will be held in the Czech mountain area in a place surrounded by nature and a peaceful environment.

Aguilas, Spain

The working room of the training is situated in Auditorium and Congress Palace Infanta Doña Elena in Aguilas. It is a modern building appraised for its architecture situated next to sandy beach on the promenade of the coastal town Aguilas. In October the weather is expected to be ideal for swimming in the sea without too high temperatures for the training siesta times.

The training is held outside the main season, therefore there will be plenty of possibilities for accommodation in Aguilas: hotels, hostels, private properties rentable via Booking or Airbnb.

Sudislav nad Orlici, Czechia

Kubasova chalupa serves as a space for long-term retreats and workshops. It provides training space with accommodation and space for leisure activities. The advantage is a quiet place in eastern Bohemia, respectful of the environment and nature, situated close to mountains.

Accommodation during the training:
As the venue is a little bit on the edge of civilization, the whole group will stay in the venue that offers accommodation and food for a reasonable price (250-300 EUR per module for accommodation and a full board, changes due to inflation need to be considered).
