A TYPICAL DAY AT SPORTS CAMP

In the morning kids can be dropped off from 8:30 – 9am where they will sign in and meet everyone at camp.

The morning sessions run from 9 until 12 where kids will meet the coaches and other children, play some warm up games and take part in the first few sports of the day.

Lunch is from 12-1 every day. Everyone will have time to eat their food and have some time to rest and do some work activities if they wish (colouring sheets, quizzes and word searches). All lunches are supervised by Northumbria staff.

The rest of the afternoon sports will run up until 4/4:30 with a different sport being offered each hour. From 4-5 when parents begin to collect, there will be some cool down games and free time where the kids can decide what they play.  

Please be aware drop off time is from 8:30am – 9am and collection is from 4pm-5pm.

Please do not arrive before 8:30am or after 5pm. 

 


ACADEMY COACHES

Every camp will have a Northumbria Sport member of staff as a Camp Manager, accompanied by one lead UKCC Level 2 coach. We also use Level 1 coaches and student volunteers to support the delivery of our camps.

ALL staff are registered/cleared with the Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) with an ENHANCED CHECK. 

 


COMMUNICATION FROM THE ACADEMY TEAM

Approximately 1 week prior to your camp you will receive a confirmation letter/ information pack via email which includes information for that week. In this email you will receive a rough session plan from the coaches and a few forms to be filled out including a consent and walking permission form. 

You can bring your registration forms with you on your first day, where we will ask for medical information and photography consent. Alternatively, you can download the form or complete one on the day you arrive.
