Whether it’s learning to put your foot on top of the ball and balance for S4K Tots, or perform a majestic Cruyff turn at the age of 7, Sport4Kids is urging parents to help their children Practice@Home.
Though skills classes run each weekend, with coaches helping children understand and execute new skills, Practice@Home has become a real ‘game-changer’ at S4K, and makes way for the next stage in children’s development.
Mark Gould, co-founder at Sport4Kids, commented: “Practice@Home has always been a key mantra of the S4K Way and we have seen children improve vastly over short periods when their families play an active role in practicing the skills at home with the child. We have seen so many positive results, but there is more that can be done. This is why we will be re-issuing every S4K child with a Practice@Home book so that they can track their progress. This is all part of building the Circle of Trust between the child, parent and coach - working as a team to help the child become the very best that they can be.”
S4K Strikers and Academy will take to the pitch on Sunday 19th March to battle it out for S4K’s latest silverware.
The football tournament will take place at Salesian School in Chertsey between 14:15-17:15pm, and will see S4K Strikers and Academy come together from our various venues across Berkshire and Surrey.
Sport4Kids are delighted to announce the launch of our toddler and kids rugby and football classes in Warrington! The UKs most up and coming sports coaching organisation are thrilled to enter into partnership with the leisure centre management chain Live Wire to bring our S4K children’s sports classes to the Broomfield Leisure Centre in Appleton, Warrington.
With six teams taking to the field today across different S4K territories, S4K FC was in top form for the season opener, winning 5 out of the 6 games.
In action today were the U7 Lions, U7 Wolves, U8 Bears, U9 Wolves, U9 Eagles and a debut for the U7 Bears, who cruised to a 5-1 victory in the first ever match.
The weather did its best to prevent, but the boys were itching to get back on the field after the Christmas break, with a chance to apply the on-field mantras they have successfully been learning. It’s these mantras that have served S4K FC so well in the past, and today’s set of results shows that that’s not likely to change this year. It’s great to see the boys doing so well, especially as some started with us when they were babies in our toddlers football classes.
We are pleased to welcome Darren Rowbotham to our team. Darren joins the S4K family with a real passion for sport and child development. He is a father and huge Manchester United fan who is looking to make a difference in UK sport. “It’s a pleasure to join the S4K Revolution!” Darren said on signing his contract with S4K. “Steve and Mark and the S4K team have made me feel at home from the beginning and I can’t wait to get started. I’ve had the pleasure to meet lots of members of the S4K team and have enjoyed getting to know them. I’ve been impressed with the analytical depth that the S4K Franchise operation has gone to. No stone has been left unturned and their commitment to quality has been an eye opener. I can’t wait to get started and be part of the movement!”
From playing a football match, to being in the middle of a battle zone during nerf wars, S4K may just have the child’s birthday party you’re after.
With the New Year upon us, it’s the perfect opportunity to get your S4K birthday bonanza into the calendar. Whether it’s a sports party, or bouncy castles or nerf guns, our sports entertainers will be on hand to deliver a party your child is unlikely to forget. In fact, you can count on it being the talk of the playground.
With the imminent launch of our toddler and kids football and rugby classes in Warrington, Sport4Kids are looking for talented coaches to join us on our mission to revolutionise children’s sport in the UK.
As we move into 2017, most of us have put the festive period to bed. However there are a few parents and children who have eagerly been waiting for a special announcement from S4K’s very own gift-giver – Colin Jackson.
Colin set all S4K members a task over the festive period – to send in their best Christmas jumper pictures for the chance to win 3 months free membership across any of S4K’s sports offering. In the spirit of the festive season, the runner-up was promised 2 months free membership, with third-place scooping one month free.
