Sports coaching for kids

Grass Roots UK was established in 1994 and since then has delivered a variety of sports and activity courses to thousands of children throughout the North East.

Grass Roots are best known for their Sports & Activity Weeks run during the Easter and Summer holidays and have always represented value for money with a typical 25 hour Sports Week costing around £40. The Sports Weeks include a blend of traditional games and fun based activities which include crash mat tournaments, tug o’ war competitions and our flagship water games.

We provide regular quality PE sessions to primary schools within our region. We help them cover PPA, provide CPD for staff and more generally raise the profile of sport and the importance of regular activity within their school.

The company was founded by Keith Morris a PE teacher of 19 years who continues to lead many of our courses, from gymnastic clubs to fell walking in the Lake District. Many of our staff have a teaching background.

Grass Roots endeavours to provide courses which will help foster a positive attitude to sport and a lifelong commitment to activity.
