Spanish term or phrase: stages de temporada (sports)
todo ello demuestra cómo Alicante es un lugar ideal para la celebracion de campeonatas de cualquier índole, concentraciones de equipos, STAGES DE TEMPORADA y entrenamientos de selecciones....

I would have thought that perhaps 'Stage' as in STAGES of a bicycle tour for example, but I just don't get the TEMPORADA bit. SEASONAL STAGES is just not a realistic possibility or acceptable English to my knowledge. However, the TEMPORADA probably does refer to the season in the sense ' bullfighting season' etc, but I just don't know how to make an acceptable, viable English translation of the term.

English translation:training camp
Explanation:
Most top Spanish football teams get together in a training camp, in a different town and often a different country from where they're based, for a week or two in August before the season starts. They train, live together, and play freindly matches. This is generally just called a 'stage'. You could translate it as 'pre-season training camp' although occasionally they are held during the season, but are a little different from a 'concentración' - where a team comes together a day or a few days before a big game to train and prepare for that game only.

Found the following item which suggests otherwise (i.e.,


Explanation:
that the "stage" is more of a break rather than an "etapa" (search parameters: stage de temporada)
"Esta es la primera ocasión que el equipo nacional de rugby realiza una visita al Parque Temático. En estos momentos, el equipo está disfrutando de un stage de temporada en la localidad de La Vila-Joiosa. Este paréntesis lo están dedicando a la preparación de la próxima gira que pronto realizarán en Ciudad de Plata (Argentina)." However, unable to locate a glossary.

Other web pages show pictures indicating that this is more of a team get-together type of thing.
