How can I pay for my membership?

Annual Membership can be purchased using our Memberships page. Annual membership can also be purchased in person at Sport Central. Payment must be made in full by either cash, cheque or credit/debit card before any use of sport facilities or services takes place.

Monthly membership paid by Direct Debit can be purchased using our Memberships page.  Monthly membership may also be purchased in person at Sport Central.

Direct Debit payments will be collected from your account on the 1st of each month or the nearest working day after that date and relate to the month ahead. When purchasing a Direct Debit membership, a pro-rata payment will be required for the amount that relates to the time between the membership contract being entered into and the first Direct Debit collection date. If purchasing online, this amount must be paid for by Credit or Debit Card. Payment may also be made in cash or cheque if purchasing in person at Sport Central.

Please note however that any membership contracts entered into after the 15th of the month will be liable for a longer pro-rata payment as it will not be possible due to the processing time required to collect on the 1st of the following month

Example A: If a membership contract were entered into on the 10th November, a pro-rata payment for the period 10th November to the 30th November would be payable. The first Direct Debit deduction would take place on the 1st December and relate to the month of December.

Example B: If a membership contract were entered into on the 16th November, a pro-rata payment for the period 16th November to the 31st December would be payable as the deadline for processing would have been missed. The first Direct Debit deduction would take place on the 1st January and relate to the month of January.

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.

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.
