PROGRAM - BASE & TRAINING
Ambition Racing is unique in that we have our very own training base in Austria.
Haus Tirol has been adapted to cater for every need of the developing athlete. Large bedrooms, a brand new 60 sqm ski room along with 2 gym rooms give our athletes the full package and every opportunity to succeed.
Leogang, Austria is where we are located and with 30 resorts within 30 minutes, we have access to every variety of terrain an athlete could wish for. We use Kitzsteinhorn for our glacier training and with 100’s of summer activities on offer, we utilize the base for fitness camps also
PROGRAM - EDUCATION
Our educational program is delivered by Ambition Tutors at the Saalfelden Nordic Sports School.
Access to proper school facilities has been key to the success of our academic program in recent years. We cover a variety of subjects and try to utilize our surroundings to inspire our athletes through their schoolwork, making lessons more interesting and exciting.
We have 3 tutors with impressive teaching backgrounds, 2 of whom are British teachers who now reside in Austria. Our educational liaison makes sure the UK schools and parents understand how Ambition education works and that work & results are communicated back and forth.
PROGRAM - PASTORAL
Our pastoral care is overseen by our live-in houseparent.
The Ambition houseparent resides at Haus Tirol (along with all of our coaching staff) to ensure that our young have athletes have responsible adults, on hand, 24-7.
Whether it’s home sickness, illness, injury or simply a listening ear or a shoulder to cry on, our houseparent is never far away.
Ambition, we feel the pastoral care is as important as the sporting & academic program and our staff are continuously undertaking courses to help us improve our understanding of what it takes to support young athletes through both the sport and their teenage years.
