Testimonials

Don't take our word for it...

Foundation Sports works closely with schools to deliver high-quality sports coaching sessions to children of all ages and abilities and from a mixture of backgrounds.

“Having four children I have used so many different after school and holiday clubs over the years – this one is really good! Foundation Sports are fantastic with the children! They are able to manage different ages and abilities together and keep them active and interested at all times. After a session with Foundation Sports, my children are so happy and enthusiastic about their day. Most importantly, I feel my children are safe and cared for here. Don't hesitate to book; your children will love it!

Parent – Holiday Camp

"St Thomas Garnet's have worked closely with Foundation Sports over the last year. Providing games lessons and additional club activities. They operate a very professional and high-quality service. The staff have fantastic working relationships with the children; numbers attending football and rugby clubs continue to increase. The Holiday Club is proving to be a great success. Well done!"

Head Teacher – St Thomas Garnet’s School, Bournemouth

"Clever Never Goes was really useful in Year 5 and it was eye-opening what the children thought was safe. It was useful for them to be aware that strangers can be a risk, but also those that they are familiar with. I think it really reinforced to them the need for open communication if they experience something they shouldn't. It also made them more critical of the situations they find themselves in."

Curriculum Enrichment Coordinator – Manorisde Academy, Poole

"Foundation Sports make your child/children feel confident in their abilities to push themselves to the best that they can be. My son absolutely loves the After School Clubs and the Holiday Clubs. It is all he ever talks about. I couldn’t recommend Josh and his team enough (10 stars)."

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) – for experienced and newly qualified teachers

Does your school have any newly qualified teachers, or experienced teachers, who feel they'd like our support teaching PE? Or can we help to increase your teacher's confidence teaching a particular subject matter, for example, gymnastics or dance? Our award-winning coaching is based on our vast experience, and knowledge, to find out how your teachers can benefit from our CPD programme, please email dorset@foundation-sports.com.

 

PE

Does your school offer outstanding physical education? Is your school meeting the 9-point review from the Youth Sports Trust? If you answered "no", please email dorset@foundation-sports.com for details on how we can help your school to make the necessary improvements.

 

MoveIT! Project

34% of 11-year-olds are now obese – and this alarming percentage is on the rise! Our unique 6-week 'MoveIT! Project' has been developed to make children active and healthier during the course – and long-term. To help in achieving this outcome, we include the children's parents and guardians, inviting them to join us during the last week; the facts we supply generally delivers a real shock and motivates them to improve their children's diet and increase their activity levels.

Sports Ambassador Courses
This course is aimed at improving children’s leadership and creativity skills. We teach children how to play basic games during their lunchtime, and add to these sessions, using their own ideas and session plans. At the end of the course we select Sports Ambassadors and reward them with a Foundation Sports T-shirt and medal.

 

SEN Coaching
Foundation Sports provides special educational needs (SEN) coaching within primary schools across Dorset, focusing on fundamental movements and improving key ball skills. Our coaching helps to develop children’s coordination and confidence.

 

Home Education PE

We can supply specialist PE coaching for home-educated children, covering a number of different sports each term. We work with you to ensure your child gets the knowledge and skills they need to achieve, and understand the benefits of, good physical health.

 

Clever Never Goes
Foundation Sports have partnered up with the charity Clever Never Goes to give parents and teachers a tried-and-tested replacement for ‘stranger danger.’ We educate primary school aged children how to spot danger; rather than them assuming every stranger is a danger to them.
