Holiday Courses

We are very proud of our unique holiday courses. We have received fantastic feedback from teachers, parents and most importantly the children who attend.

Not only are our camps affordable, they provide a great opportunity for your child to stay active and continue to learn and develop in the school holidays.

In a safe sporting environment your child will learn to work in a team, grow in confidence, understand the importance of sportsmanship, pick up new skills and most importantly have fun whilst doing so!

Multi-Sports

An Active Development Multi-Sports Course consists of a combination of our popular fun based activities like Dodgeball and Capture the Flag with the children’s favourite sports like Hockey and Athletics.  We always say to the children the course is about them and we often allow them to decide the days activities, our coaches always strive to ensure EVERY child goes home happy. We also often run themed competitions for the children to enter, for example ‘Design an Easter Sportstar’ or a ‘Spooky Sportstar’ at Halloween.
