How do you get better at what you want to do? You might  already be an expert or perhaps you are heading there,  but how do you focus on getting to be as good as you  possibly can?

World of Champions opens a whole different level of  reality where it’s not how good you are today, it’s how  good you are going to be tomorrow that matters

“What’s the difference that makes the difference?”

What’s the difference between a world champion and  you? Is it physical, technical, tactical, psychological or  perhaps something else? Everyone who has ever pursued  success has asked this or a similar question at some point.  Some find it, some find a small piece of it and others look,  sometimes for their whole lives without even a glimpse.

World of Champions helps you find the difference that  makes the difference and offers those who are open and  willing to grow, a journey of personal growth towards  finding the very best version of themselves. Are you ready  to jump in?

WOC PHILOSOPHY

We all have something unique, something special. Let’s find it.

What makes a champion? Nature or nurture? Maybe or maybe not. There’s not a straightforward answer because there are so many variables.

I have spent years studying what it was that made the difference. Each person’s uniqueness is their own special ingredient that allows them to find the way to being as good as they can. So what works for a person may not be effective for the next.

That is why the key to World of Champions as this is not a camp that simply focuses on the traditional sport excellence models. Yes, you will become stronger, faster and higher. But what it is more important to me is that I help make a profound difference to the way you chase and realize your dreams.

What’s going to work for you? I have no idea… yet. But I can’t wait for us to figure it out – and with my experience and curiosity, and your commitment and drive I’m certain we will.

– Jacko Jakson

GAME PLAN

Over the duration of the camp, we work with you to get you thinking like a champion, acting like a champion, speaking like a champion and ultimately becoming one. The days are long and rich, the workload heavy, but it’s worth it..

Here’s what you’ll learn:

1. THE CONTRACT OF LEARNING – Here we present the ethos of the camp, what you can expect and how you can get the most from the experience.

2. GOAL SETTING – We’re going to dig deep, discover your wildest dreams and establish what sets your world on fire. Then we’ll show you how to ensure you’re constantly moving towards your goals and stay motivated long after the course is over.

3. FINDING YOUR MOTIVATION STRATEGY – Why do we so often leave our mindset completely to chance, and then wonder why we sometimes have lackluster kayaking sessions? We’re going to help you form your own personalized motivation strategy to get you into the perfect frame of mind at the start of every session.

4. DESIGNING YOUR OPTIMAL LEARNING STRATEGY (Part 1) – We’re going to help you understand which senses you associate with most strongly. You can then use this knowledge to improve your rate of learning, improve the sensory acuity of your weaker senses, and experiment with different energies to impact your kayaking.

5. DESIGNING YOUR OPTIMAL LEARNING STRATEGY (Part 2) – Learn the strategies used by elite athletes, from Olympic downhill skiers to world-class tennis players, to model and effectively replicate any skill.

6. MASTERING THE INNER GAME – Here, we’re going to introduce and expand on several concepts to set you on the path to mastery of this often underrated but ever-so powerful aspect of sport performance. This will include: guided imagery session to show some of the finer points of this mega tool, how to centre yourself, finding your performance state and developing a personalised focus trigger.

7. REVIEW AND REFLECTION – Learn a number of techniques for reflecting on and critically reviewing your performance so you can make improvements each time you get back on the water.. This will include tools like: journalling, imagery, perceptual positions and strategies for taking your video analysis to the next level.

8. THE DELIBERATE PRACTICE SESSION – The 10,000 hours to mastery rule is a myth! Here we will explain what we mean by a ‘deliberate practice session’, how you can shortcut the 10,000-hour rule’ by understanding how the best in the world use strategies to improve their practice effectiveness and how you can create a personalised framework to maximise the benefit that you get from every second on the water.

Sessions will be run in English but in case you don’t understand or you have any questions, our coaches do speak French, Spanish and Catalan. Other Athletes may be able to help you as well. Don’t worry, we will find the way to understand each other and your English will improve by the day!

HOW DO I BOOK MY KAYAK ONTO MY FLIGHT?​

It is generally easy to book your freestyle boat onto most airline companies. However, some companies have length limitations that would exclude most creekboats. It is important to read the sport baggage policies of the companies you are considering to fly with before booking your ticket. Here is a quick breakdown of the fares of various popular airlines:

Ryanair – 35€ for the regular Sports Equipment, 55€ for a Large Sports Item. It is possible to check in up to 2 Large Sport Items per person per flight. The maximum weight allowed is 20kg, but you might be allowed to fly paying an additional fee of 11€/kg up to 32kg. In general quite a friendly company for both freestyle and creekboats.

EasyJet – The fee is 55€ and only one item per passenger is allowed. You can check in your kayak without problems as kayaks are amongst the items that are allowed on the airline’s sports baggage policy. Up to 32kgs. Friendly for both freestyle and creekboats.

Eurowings – Up to 32kg allowed, it has a cost of 50€. Generally a friendly company for both freestyle and creekboats.

Norwegian Airlines – Max dimensions stated on website are 250cmx79cmx112cm. This is more than enough for any freestyle boat and borderline for most modern creekboats. Likely that they would not care about 20cm extra as width and height of the kayaks are much less than their max allowance. 32kg max. weight allowance makes it a good company to chuck your kayaking gear inside your kayak :).
Cost is very reasonable at 30GBP (if booked online) or 50GBP directly at the counter. 

Vueling – Kayaks are not on the allowed item list, but surfboards are. You will most likely not have any problems convincing the employees your kayak is actually a paddleboard. The weight limit is 32kg and the maximum length 270cm, which is good for all freestyle boats and many creekboats. The cost is 45€.

Lufthansa – Kayaks are not on the allowed item list, but surfboards are. You will most likely not have any problems convincing the employees your kayak is actually a paddleboard. The maximum length allowed is 3,15m and the maximum weight is 32kg so this is a creekboat-friendly company. The cost is quite elevated, at 70 – 150€ depending if it’s a domestic flight or an international flight.

Aer Lingus – Kayaks are not on the allowed item list, but surfboards are. You will most likely not have any problems convincing the employees your kayak is actually a paddleboard. The maximum weight allowed is 23kg and maximum length is 240cm, so freestyle boats are a go, but it is not a friendly company for creekboats. The cost is 40€.

Wizz Air – Kayaks are not on the allowed item list, but surfboards are. You will most likely not have any problems convincing the employees your kayak is actually a paddleboard. A slightly odd company as the price depends on the season and it’s higher during the summer months and lower during the winter. Not the most kayak friendly company so better to be avoided if you travel with your boat.

We highly recommend that you book your sports equipment in advance to avoid higher fees in the airport check in, or even worse, finding out that the flight is full and not being allowed to bring your kayak with you on board.

Also, packing your kayak nicely in a bag or using a “sock” for surfboards will maximise the chances that everything goes smoothly and that you don’t have any problems.

I AM UNDER 16 AND TRAVELLING ALONE. WHAT COMPANIES ALLOW U16s TO FLY IN THEIR OWN?​

Ryanair – This company does not allow unaccompanied minors under 16 years to travel. U16s can travel only in case there is a responsible adult over 16 years of age.

Easyjet – This company does not allow unaccompanied minors under 15 years to travel.

Eurowings – This company allows minors as young as 12 years old to travel unaccompanied. Children between 5 and 11 can also fly if they are accompanied by a sibling over 16 years of age. The company also offers an unaccompanied minors service at an extra charge for passengers younger than 12 years of age. DIRECT FLIGHTS ONLY!

Norwegian – Maybe the best company out there to fly if you are an unaccompanied minor as they accept ages ranging from 5 – 15. From 5 – 11 you will need to contract the Unaccompanied Minor Service. This service is available but only optional from 12-15 and once your 16 you’ll be considered an adult.

Vueling – This company allows minors as young as 12 years old to travel unaccompanied. Exception – Italian kids must be at least 14 to be able to travel alone.

Lufthansa – This company allows minors as young as 12 years old to travel unaccompanied. Children between 5 and 11 can also fly if they are accompanied by a sibling over 16 years of age. The company also offers an unaccompanied minors service at an extra charge for passengers younger than 12 years of age, although it is also possible to book for up to 17yo. DIRECT FLIGHTS ONLY!

Aer Lingus – This company allows minors as young as 12 years old to travel unaccompanied. DIRECT FLIGHTS ONLY!

Wizz Air – This company does not allow unaccompanied minors under 16 years to travel. U16s can travel only in case there is a responsible adult over 16 years of age.

REMEMBER: Some countries have specific requirements for any children under 18 years who wish to travel into, out of or within their country. You must contact the country’s embassy website or national authorities for more information before you make your booking, and commence travel as these requirements can vary depending on the country, and can change regularly.
