We work with schools and other key partners to provide a broad range of inspiring extra-curricular clubs, ensuring high-quality opportunities are accessible and sport and physical activity is an enjoyable, inclusive and healthy learning experience for all. These are available before school, lunch time or part of after school clubs.
With all clubs and programmes, we ensure pathways exist for all children to continue their learning, participation and enjoyment through strong links to external club and community provision.
Our extra-curricular programmes are regularly reviewed in order to consistently meet the needs of schools, children and parents.
Some of our current clubs being delivered in schools and communities include:
We are proud to partner with the ‘THIS GIRL CAN’, a national campaign developed by Sport England and a range of partnership organisations, to inspire more girls and women to be active.
Our new Archery Clubs are extremely popular and are both physically and mentally challenging. The benefits of archery include enhanced mental capacity, physical health and general fitness. Archery can also improve patience and focus and can give children a strong sense of personal achievement.
Available to both boys and girls, we deliver England Netball’s ‘HIGH 5’ version of the full game, specifically designed for primary children, which uses fun and variety to introduce the game, develop skills and enhance fitness. We also organise ‘BACK TO NETBALL’ sessions for adults who may have played the game previously, aimed at rediscovering the game and being active with colleagues and friends.
Available to both boys and girls, our popular football clubs ensure all participants, regardless of ability, learn, develop and refine a range of key football skills through the creation of safe, fun and challenging learning environment.
Our Key Stage 2 Boxing Club forms part of our school sport ethos in which we aim to offer as wide a range of sporting opportunities for our children as possible. Participants engage in structured ‘fitness for boxing’ activities which have no contact whatsoever – it is based around developing technique, fitness, using the pads and gloves and having fun, whilst working towards the Amateur Boxing Association competency awards.
Our new Rowing Club for Year 6 children, delivered by Birmingham Rowing Club, provides a low impact way to develop fitness, technique and stay active as well as promoting healthy competition. Through the Club, the children are invited to progress to outdoor rowing on water at Birmingham Rowing Club.
Change4Life Sports Clubs are a new type of extra-curricular sports club, designed to increase physical activity levels in less active children in primary schools by:
Our popular Fencing Clubs offer a combination of games, balance, mobility and blade skill activities to help all children understand the sport and develop their skills within a safe, supportive and stimulating environment.
Street Dance is an exciting fusion of many different dance styles including disco, modern, hip hop, funk, break dancing and many more, and is extremely popular with children and young people of all ages and abilities.
Working with key partners, we are passionate about introducing all children and young people to ‘real’ street dance techniques through professional delivery, making dance an enjoyable, interactive and expressive learning experience.
Working in partnership with local British Gymnastics affiliated clubs, we can offer structured, progressive and FUN gymnastics clubs for all KS1 and KS2 children, ensuring a high-quality, enjoyable coaching experience, centred on the needs of all children. The children have the opportunity to work towards official British Gymnastics proficiency awards and competitions.
Available to all children in Key Stage 1, our popular Multi-Skills clubs run in school term time offering structured weekly sessions to develop FUNdamentalmovement skills (agility, balance, co-ordination and speed) and generic sports skills (catching, sending and striking) with application in a range of FUN sports and disguised learning activities.
These clubs can be used to further develop children identified as ‘gifted and talented’ and where necessary offer appropriate exit routes within sport, or to engage individuals or key population groups in bespoke, ‘interventional’ programmes to develop movement potential, key skills and confidence.
Available to all children in Key Stage 2, our popular Multi-Sports clubs run in school term time offering structured weekly sessions to develop interest, learning and skills in a range of sports activities within a positive, safe and FUN-filled environment. Sports are delivered on a weekly or fortnightly basis and are then changed to provide the children with new challenges and goals.
Our popular ‘Multi-ACTIVITY’ clubs provide opportunities for all Key Stage 2 children to be active, improve fitness and have fun, all at the same time! All activities are fun-based and are delivered by professionals, at the appropriate level for the age, strength and maturity of the children.
We also organise our ‘Multi-ACTIVITY’ clubs for parents, families and the wider community, enabling and empowering them to be active and achieve health and social benefits.
These clubs are offered periodically, providing children with new and exciting opportunities to participate in more diverse sports activities delivered by professionals within each discipline. These currently include taekwondo, yoga, vigor-boarding, golf, boxing, archery, fencing and table-tennis.
We also provide bespoke school team development clubs offering a range of specialist team training programmes for boys and girls school sports teams ranging from delivering stand-alone coaching sessions in preparation for tournaments and festivals, through to delivering a structured programme of bespoke sessions, selection of teams and coaching at fixtures. This provides an ideal opportunity for key members of the school staff or volunteers to engage in the programme and develop effective communication, organisational and technical coaching skills.
We work with schools to support or fully organise breakfast clubs, reflecting diverse school and family needs, to meet a range of identified outcomes.
