What Happens at Kids Gala Parties?

Gala sports is a unique birthday party experience which will involve a selection of exciting and often never played set of activities from across the globe. These parties can include:

Scooter Hockey: Traditional hockey but played in a very unique way. Children will each be seated on a small square scooter which will slide across the room as they play. Can they use the small head of the hockey stick to outscore their opponents?

Soft Polo: Children will each have a Soft Polo stick. The aim of the game is to hit the bouncy ball in the middle into the oppositions goal. With the Soft Polo stick being round shaped and unpredictable the children will have endless fun in this crazy sport.

Hungry Hippos: Each team will have a small scooter and a basket. One at a time they will have to slide their teammate into the action and collect as many balls as possible before returning to base. The team that collect the most will be the winning team in this crazy real life take on the popular board game

 

Medicine Man: This child friendly version of Dodgeball is great for all ages. With the saviour being the “medicine man/girl” they will have the chance to bring tagged players back into the action and keep their team alive while trying to tag the other teams players with the soft balls themselves.

Curling: An indoor take on the popular winter sport, ice is not necessary as the teams will tactically try and hit the opposition’s stones away from the centre target to try and be the wining team. Will you go for raw power or will you use your head to calculate the best shots?

Time Bomb: The giant Bomb “Medicine Ball” will start in the middle of the room. From your base can you use the soft balls to send the bomb into another team’s area? A very crazy and active game with very little in the way of tactics! Lots of fun for all ages!

Quidditch: Based on the popular sport seen in the Harry Potter stories children will soar around on their broomsticks to try and score points in a handball type game. But watch out for the snitch! Who will catch it first and claim the points?

Scatterball: Scatterball is a mix of Tennis and Rounders. Teams of children will bat or field and attempt to make it around the bases before the fielders can collect all of the balls that have been hit, kicked or thrown into the distance. A very speedy and active game which is great for friendly competition

All of our Parties are available to book online via our booking page. Our form will capture all of the details that we need in order to make your child’s day special. Once the form has been completed, our team will contact you within 48 hours to introduce themselves and discuss any additional requirements.

All of the games we play can be delivered indoors or outdoors. Some games work better in a hall and some better outside so if the weather is being kind we may decide to mix the party between both. The coach will be prepared for games indoors and outdoors so the decisions can be made when the coach arrives. As a rule of thumb, we encourage parents to book venues with sports halls for children from 5 years and or for parties with a large number of guests.  We wouldn’t advise playing a football tournament with 20 6 year olds in a local church hall (and nor would the caretaker!). This is so that we can have as many children participating in the activities as possible at all times, rather than waiting for their turn. We have a list of “tried and test” venues available for our families and can discuss these on 0300 303 3866.

We will always recommend having an indoor area for games should it be required. If there is no indoor facility available the coach will do their best to make the best of the space they have. We will consider the extent of the rain, the age of the children and the activities being played and do our best to play as many games as possible.

All of our games are designed to be as inclusive as possible and we pride ourselves on the fact that we can find a game for everyone. We believe it is very important to make sure every child is involved at the same time and all of our games are chosen to be fun for both boys and girls.

It is not uncommon to have children who are a little bit more shy than others. We will do our best to bring them in slower without disrupting the flow of the party – something that our Sports Entertainers are excellent at doing. They may wish to play with some equipment aside from the activities before they join in the structured events which we would be happy for them to do.

We provide a medal for the birthday child(ren) at every party. We are happy to hand out any extras such as medals or trophies that you provide at the end of the party in a ceremony type event.

Sadly due to food standards regulations, we are unable to provide food for our parties.

The space required is dependent on the amount of children attending and the activities you would like us to provide. Most of our games can be adapted if we need to within reason. We strongly recommend having a separate area for parents that wish to stay to maximise the space for activities!

We understand that sometimes things happen and a party cannot go ahead due to illness or unforeseen circumstances. For any party that is cancelled with over 48 hours of notice, we are happy to credit the party and move it to a different date – whether that be in a week or in a year.

We request all payment for party bookings up front in order to minimise the level of administration required. This can all be completed by the booking page in a few short steps.

We are lucky enough that we have a large number of talented Sports Entertainers that we can call upon to assist with our party programs, so we are often able to attend parties at short notice. We do not recommend waiting until the last minute though in order to avoid disappointment.

Indeed we do! If you are a member at any of our S4K Clubs, you can expect 10% off your party booking with us.
