“The Regional Performance Squads National Camp weekend has been held at another location for 11 years and 2018 was the first time it has ever been moved and we could not have wanted a better location than St Andrews University.
Working on a talent development project with 120 14-16yr olds requires many elements including performance, education, social, lifestyle and safety. The facilities provided across the David Russell Apartments, Meeting rooms, Football pitches and Saints Sport Centre were first class.
We were initially concerned that the campus was larger than our normal venue however the smooth transition from halls to pitches to classrooms for both players, staff and parents was facilitated and supported very well by the St Andrews University staff. I would encourage any party, large or small, looking for a high level of facility provision and service to use St Andrews as a venue.”Donald Gillies, Head of Girls & Women's Football
London Scottish FCSummer 2018
“We were guests of University of St Andrews for our pre-season performance camp.
The experience was first class. The accommodation and food was excellent. The training facilities were outstanding. The pitches were immaculately prepared. The gym and other indoor facilities were extremely well kitted out.
The location of the accommodation, pitches and performance centre were all well placed next to each other and walking distance from the magical St Andrews town centre and beaches.
What was most striking was the staff of University of St Andrews who in all departments seemed so connected to a common cause of delivering a great customer experience for us. They all went the extra mile to help and always with a smile on their faces.”Dave Morris, Director of Rugby

“Aberdeen FC have attended the St Andrews Tournament for a number of years, competing at all three age groups.

The organisation has proven to be very professional and once again we will include the competition in our Academy tournament programme for 2019.”Gavin Levey, Head of Academy Coaching
