Frequently Asked Questions
Naturally you will have questions about registering your child for a new activity. Here are some of our most common FAQs, but you can also access the full set by clicking here.
Of course! We believe that it is vitally important that you are able to see whether the Sport4Kids activities are for you and your child. The trial session is designed to allow you to see what Sport4Kids activities have to offer. However, we do emphasise that a child may need more than one session in order to make the most of their time with us and only expect around 30% participation for the first lesson. Most children will not have participated in instructor led activities prior to their visit and this can take time to get used to. After your initial trial session, our experienced coaching team will be able answer any questions that you may have and offer advice on your child’s experience.

All of our venues have indoor facilities and most also have outdoor facilities. Our S4K Strikers and above may play outside at certain venues, but this will be detailed on each specific venue webpage. During the Autumn, Winter and early Spring months, classes are held indoors, but when the opportunity arises in the Summer, we endevour to take the S4K classes outside.
Sport4Kids coaches are truly special. It takes 4 months and 24 examinations to move past the trainee level of coach. Coaches graduate through our Coaching Development Pathway, which involves technical coaching, child behaviour management, child psychology and safeguarding. All coaches are DBS checked and extremely passionate about what they do too!
Our classes do not stop for half-term or the summer holidays so we are always on hand to entertain your children. As a rule, it is generally safe to assume that we are operating. We will of course communicate with you if there are any planned or last minute changes.
As children reach the age of 6 years, they are able to take part in the non-profit S4K Football Club and play against local league sides in FA registered leagues and tournaments. This allows them to pit their skills against the best oppositions in the area. Click here to read more about S4K FC.
Our S4K Tournament provides our S4K Strikers and Academy age groups with their first introduction to competitive tournament football. The clubs lock horns while cheered on from family and friends from the sidelines in a carefully crafted introduction to tournament football.
