Choose your own Camp:

There are 2 types of Sports Camps we offer to schools

Darren Hill- Sporting Dreams Managing Director

1. Choose A Sport Specific Coaching Camp:

The first type of camp we offer is a Sport Specific Coaching Camp. This is where you as the Head teacher would choose one or a combination of sports/activities for your children to learn over the school holidays. This could be for just one day or a combination of days and activities. Take a look at all of our Sports & Activities to choose from. These camps are delivered by our DBS Checked, First Aid and National Governing Body Qualified Level 1, 2, 3 coaches. The focus on these camps is fun coaching and to introduce children to the skills, techniques and the tactics required to play the specific sport. We use various coaching formulas, games, activities and competitions to create a fun learning environment for the children. For more information please email us.

Examples of a sport specific coaching camp

1 Day Basketball Coaching Camp or Street Dance Camp or (Choose any of our Sports & Activities).

1 Day Multisport Coaching Camp (A combination of 2-4 sports) eg, 10am-12pm New Age Kurling Coaching Camp and then 1pm-3pm a Mini Fencing Coaching Camp. or (Choose a combination from our Sports & Activities).

2. Choose A School Holiday Activity Sports Camp:

The second type of camp we offer is a School Holiday Activity Sports Camp. 

These are our most popular camps and are delivered by fully trained Activity Leaders and supported by Activity Assistants/Helpers. 

Children play 6-8 various sports, dance and games activities throughout the day, and every day is different with over 50+ sports and activities to choose from. 

Example Program of a Sporting Dreams School Holiday Activity Sports Camp:

Fun Warm Up Games – Basketball, Football, Tennis, Air Hockey, Glow in the Dark Dodgeball, Kick or Electric Scooters, Golf with Foam Balls, Mini-Olympics (including Tug of War, Sack Race, Egg n Spoon, Sprint Races), New Age Kurling, Just Dance/Cheerleading, Daily Awards, Certificates, Medals and Trophies, or (Choose any of our Sports & Activities).

Children Learn through PLAY:

Children always look forward to playing matches and taking part in competitions, so we have designed our programs around learning through PLAY with a little coaching guidance. The success of our camps is a combination of providing children with a quick, jam packed activity program with a Fun Activity Leader. Children only spend a short time on each activity until they rotate round to the next activity, and the role of our Activity Leader is to create a fun and safe learning environment whereby children can learn the basic skills of how to play a sport/activity through playing fun games in pairs and small teams no bigger than 7v7.

Our role as an Activity Leader is more as an organiser. Organising games and a little hint of skills coaching once the children understand what they have to do. For more information on the duties of our staff including Activity Leaders and Specialist Sports Coaches roles, please visit our staff page

Rewarding Positive Behaviour:

All children are awarded with an attendance certificate on their last day of camp. The certificates are deigned to encourage children to demonstrate positive behavioural traits which you can see below. We also use the certificate as a behaviour management tool as it serves as a brief parent report. The activity leader will score children with 1 to 10 points for demonstrating positive behaviour throughout their time at camp. We also hand out sports awards in various activities for positive and encouraging attitudes. (Please see the examples of certificates below and the positive behavioural traits we encourage children to demonstrate).

Children score 1 - 10 points for;

  • Trying my very best at each activity.
  • Playing fairly, being positive and encouraging the efforts of other children. 
  • Being nice and kind to other children.
  • Showing excellent listening skills and following instructions.
  • Demonstrating honour in defeat and showing good sportsmanship.
