Athletic and educational testimonials from those who know us best.

“L has had a fantastic first year with Evolution. She has developed and matured both as an athlete and as a person and has been happy throughout the year. She has maintained a strong academic footing despite her absences from school in the UK, receiving her best end of year report yet. Her progress is testament to a great team of coaches, teachers and the well organised programme.

“As a family we have so much to thank you and the team for this season and are really appreciative of what you do for us. I’ve said it before and will say it again, that without you and the team R would not have the fabulous opportunity that he has which enables him to develop his skiing and his independence, whilst providing him with amazing life experiences.”

“Following on from Anna’s decision to pursue a career in football I wanted to write and say thank you for all the support that you’ve given to Anna and Patrick. Aside from physical skill, you’ve taught them so much that I know will stand them in good stead for the rest of their lives. In Pat’s personal statement he talks about his skiing experience and wrote, ‘The sport has also taught me to take responsibility for my failures and move forward with a positive mindset’ and adds, ‘We were taught by our coaches that collaboration, even in an individual sport, allows us to excel and learn from each other, as well as being able to count on each other in times of failure or hardship’ – great things for a young person to have learnt. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding whilst Anna was going through the football trial process and for all your time and effort which has always been appreciated.”

“Evolution is more than a great place for children to learn ski racing technique, it is a wonderful environment for children to learn more about themselves. Our son, J, has been skiing from a very young age. We have sought out coaches and programmes which offer great training and have a well thought out ethos. Evolution offers both by setting high standards for sport, and also, for interaction amongst the team members.

The staff at Evolution invest their time and their hearts into the development of the children in the programme. Our son, J, was expected to work hard on the slopes but also to be a good team mate, take responsibility for himself, his gear, and get his school work done. J has grown as a skier and as a person in wonderful ways during his time at Evo.

We are hugely appreciative of the time that has been invested to help J develop his organizational skills and work ethic.

In J’s words, “Paul Telling works harder than almost anyone I know and he really cares about what he does.”

“Team Evolution was a great help in my life as a student athlete, providing me the time, coaching and facilities to be committed to both my sport and my studies. I do not believe there is another programme out there with the same level of expertise that can provide the same opportunities. Team Evolution supported me massively throughout my school years and the tutors provide a great environment for all us athletes to be able to work productively during the day alongside our training and racing. I am very grateful for all that the programme provided, and how it has helped me develop skills of work and time management that I am able to take into later life.”

“I have been very impressed with the Maths work J has produced whilst away skiing this season. I must say the professionalism of the Team Evolution Tutors has been impressive and I agreed with the feedback we have received in his progress reports from Austria. I must say it is a significant improvement on last year, when J was training elsewhere. He has shown a much more mature attitude towards his schoolwork upon his return and I am very pleased with his progress to date.”

“Team Evolution have been incredibly supportive in M’s education to date. The timely emails informing us of his commitments have enabled the School to plan and provide work when appropriate. His tutors at Team Evolution have allocated specific study times for extra work and have thoroughly covered the topics given to him which has helped increase his understanding of problem areas. M’s progress reports, which Team Evolution have provided at regular intervals, have allowed us to monitor his education at a very important time and we are confident that progress in all his subject areas has not suffered in any way whilst he has been involved with Team Evolution, and we would like to thank them for their work with us.”
