At Holiday Academy we are passionate about giving our children the opportunity to get out some of that pent up energy that knows no bounds, especially making the most of the holidays. Our sports activities for children offers a number of excellent physical activities that also help build team spirit. We love our teams in the UK so football for all takes a high place of honour in our camp activities.
In recent years it has become evident that children just aren’t getting enough physical activity! Not only is there limited space in London schools for this, but also they spend altogether too much time watching telly during weeks when school is in session and sometimes also fail to get enough recreational activity when school is on holiday. In addition, kids of today seem to spend way too much time on their computers playing games, and chatting on social media – even younger children in primary school.
Fitness awareness is the centre of our sports workshop for kids so whether we are doing an exercise programme, playground games, obstacle courses or participating in team sports, it is always with the goal of promoting a higher level of fitness. Even so, we take team sports very seriously as it teaches our youth to work together towards a common goal while also fostering a healthy spirit of competition.
Sport Activities for children
Our instructors and coaches work with kids from 3 to 12 years and all activities in our sports camp for kids are geared towards their level of development. We match them up quite evenly so no one feels at a disadvantage and as the fun begins, everyone takes a sense of pride in what they can do for their team.
Certain activities are set in pairs such as when we play in tennis matches. With a more focused one-on-one type of activity we can begin developing the finer movements often needed to excel in a sport. The ultimate goal isn’t to create little athletes, however. Our mission is to use our sports workshop for kids to help keep them fit, active and energetic.
Parents love Holiday Academy because it helps to provide a place where youth can have fun but will also be well tended. School may be out for the session but we will be here helping to build strong muscles and bones through regular activity whilst fostering a team spirit.
This year we are beginning a Senior Holiday Academy in October for those kids aged 8 to 12 and our plan is to have our first ever senior sports camp for kids as well as our normal sport sessions – we are excited by all the enthusiasm to date. Call us soon for enrolment information to ensure your child has a place during half-term or other holidays!
