As the men's team used to do, the female players of the "Olympique Lyonnais" Club have chosen their physical preparation resort in altitude! When Patrice Lair, the female champions coach, looks back on what has been done at the end of the training camp in 2011, he reported to be "satisfied" and "[...] ready for a beautiful upcoming season". And this is why the athletes come to Tignes. And the coach was right actually because in 2012, the women's team became the only French football club to win the hat-trick Champions League / French championship / French football Cup!
To achieve that (there is no end to their many titles since), the girls had worked hard.
During their stays in Tignes, the "Lyonnaises" have many hard training times : football of course on the Eric Cantona stadium in front of some spectators, biathlon, rafting, mountainbike, balneotherapy at the Lagon to revitalize and enjoy some well-deserved relaxing breaks!
Dates : From the 20/08 till the 29/08/2013

The "Olympique Lyonnais" Club has chosen its physical preparation resort in altitude. And it's already been 15 years ! The Club used to come to Tignes for summer for a 100% oxygenation stay for the great pleasure of its supporters. Ideal conditions to have a training camp! For the emblematic coach Robert Duverne, "every time this is like a discovery and it is actually for some players. We know the environment. We have perfect conditions to practice with the altitude and a field in perfect shape. [...] This is really a deamy workplace."
But these stays are not holidays. The players always have a very busy planning preparing the upcoming season. On the programme, football of course, but not only: training times open to everyone for free on the Eric Cantona and Fabien Galthié stadiums, biathlons on the Grande Motte glacier, triathlons, run & bike sessions (Col de l'Iseran ascent) and signing sessions.They had already swapped their football cleats for hiking shoes to go the best mountains summits. The occasion to take a breath of fresh air and to spend a night in a refuge at 3000m in altitude!
A team full of energy, some satisfied and full of confidence coaches, some happy supporters : the training camps are good for the Club!
Dates : from the 27/06 to the 05/07/2014
