What should my child wear for the sessions?
Your child should wear clothes they are comfortable to move around in and have appropriate footwear for physical activity.
What will my child need to bring?
A snack for break-time - please ensure these are nut free.
A refillable water bottle with your child’s name on it.
Clothing for sports activities.
Trainers or shoes for general sports, ideally with non-marking soles.
Sunscreen and a hat for hot days and a waterproof jacket for rainy days.
What should my child leave at home?
Mobile phones – We understand that children use their phones more and more these days. While we’re not against them, we encourage that phones are kept in bags and only used for essential contact.
Sports equipment – We’ve got plenty!
Money – There won’t be any tuck shops.
Valuables – Such as expensive watches and non-essential jewellery.
What first aid will be provided?
While your child is in our care, every effort is made to ensure a safe playing environment. However, if an accident does occur, qualified first aiders are always available. At all times the wishes of the parent will be upheld if further medical assistance is required.
Do you accept childcare vouchers?
Unfortunately, we do not accept childcare vouchers.
My child has a medical condition can they still attend?
Of course. We trust that you will give us as much information as possible about any medical condition your child has before camp starts. Please share full details when booking. All information will remain confidential.
What should I do if my child is sick or unable to attend?
You know your child best. That’s why we trust that you’re responsible for ensuring your child is well enough to participate in sports and activities, and for ensuring other children aren’t affected by your child’s ill-health. Please contact us as soon as possible if this is not the case.
Are your coaches all Olympians?
All our head coaches are Olympians and then any assistant coaches have been through a thorough recruitment process ensuring they have the experience and qualifications to deliver the high-quality programme we offer.
Whilst we are extremely proud that every Coaching Workshop is led by an Olympian, we cannot guarantee that every group in the coaching workshop will have an Olympian leading it. If not an Olympian though they will have an experienced Physical Education teacher or level 2 coach, who has competed at a high level in their chosen sport.
How do I sign in and out of the coaching workshop?
You must sign in and sign out at the desk with a member of the Sports Team. Exact details will be emailed to you prior to the session.
Will my child be grouped with friends?
Many children arrive not knowing other children, and part of attending is developing new friendships. However, we do our best to accommodate friend requests made prior to arriving on camp.
What sports will my child do during a multi sports coaching workshops?
Each day your child will participate in a broad range of activities focusing on fundamental skills. They will also begin to learn sports specific skills from some of the following sports: Football, Team Games, Badminton, Basketball, Dodgeball, Tennis, Netball, Hockey, Football, Athletics, Cricket and Rounders.
Please note that activities are subject to change depending on the weather and facilities available.
Will my child do the same sports each day?
We aim to deliver 3 different sports each day, so over a 2-day course your child will participate in 6 different sports.
Can my child just attend 1 day or will they have missed information and be behind everyone else?
Each day is like a separate session so they will be at no disadvantage by having not attended prior sessions, as new sports are introduced daily. However, the more sessions they attend the quicker they will become familiar with the fundamental motor skills used in physical activity.
Are sessions cancelled if it is raining?
We are in a fortunate position to have excellent indoor and outdoor facilities so no sessions will be cancelled due to the weather.
Are the parents expected to participate in the classes?
With younger children the parents are actively encouraged to help their children. A child's independence is one of the learning skills in the older groups so we encourage the parents to be supportive on the side lines or please feel free to take a break!
