Option 2:
Monday 19th August – Friday 23rd August 2024
Course Times: 9:00am – 3:00pm*
Course Durations: 30 hours **5 EXTRA HOURS**

*You may notice these timings are different to any flyers received through school. Please note the change in timings, the course will run 9:00am – 3:00pm rather than 09:30am – 3:30pm as initially advertised, this is unfortunately beyond our control so we apologise for any inconvenience. 

** We have increased the provision by 5 hours a week, adding an additional hour per day; 30 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes in the afternoon. Each day will now run from 9.30am – 3.30pm. We always try where possible to keep our costs down, therefore the overall cost of the 30 hours sports week works out at only £2.16 per hour!

The sports week will involve various sports, including football, cricket, gymnastics, rounders, tennis, hockey etc and will involve fun based activities such as water games/fights, crash mat tournaments and tug of war competitions.

The course will be taken by qualified coaches/teachers. All of our coaching staff have been through a recent police clearance.

Children will need a packed lunch and spare change of clothes everyday. Wednesday will be our Wheelie Wednesday, children are encouraged to bring bikes, scooters, rollerblades of their choice. Friday will be our traditional water fight day, children will therefore need to bring a FULL change of clothes (including shoes), a towel, plastic bag for their wet clothes and may bring a super soaker. Please note children are not allowed to bring water balloons.

Grass Roots merchandise will be available to purchase at the beginning and end of every day. Hoodies £15, Tees £7 and bottles £3.50.

Individual days are priced at £22 per day and can be booked via email (
