Each camp includes a special themed afternoon session for children on the last day, including “it’s a knock out” competitions, Easter Fun Days, Mini Olympics, Football World Cups, Halloween Parties and Christmas Fun.

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.

“This is the best thing to ever happen to the sports department. It has enabled all our teams to get professionally coached without putting a strain on our teaching staff at the school. The results have been fantastic, with several teams making finals. This would not have been possible without the help of Foundation Sports.”

Head of Department – King Solomon High School, Ilford

"Foundation Sports has worked in partnership with us since autumn of 2000. The coaching sessions have always been extremely successful and highly sort after by the different age groups. The manner in which the company is run is of a high professional standard; always very polite, respectful of our wishes and obviously well organised. The coaches have a good relationship with the children, friendly, firm in expecting high standards of behaviour and manners, which we as a school, value. We have always found Foundation Sports to be an organisation we are happy and fortunate to be in association with."

Head Teacher – St Paul's CE Primary School, London

"The Sport & Health team has worked closely with representatives from Foundation Sports over many years. We have worked in partnership to deliver and develop community sports coaching sessions and programmes for the young people within Redbridge, including providing school PE and education provision, grass route sports sessions and schools festivals. We are committed to continue working with Foundation Sports to develop sports provision within the borough and ensure local residents have access to a quality sporting provision to grow participation in sport and physical activity."

Sport & Health Manager – Vision Redbridge Culture & Leisure, Ilford

"A collaborative piece of preventative work was undertaken to support the reduction of childhood obesity in Redbridge. Foundation Sports worked with Vision, and the healthy weight team, to develop a six week programme for primary school age children. The programme developed in to the 'MoveIT! Project' and was run as a pilot in a primary school in Redbridge with a successful evaluation. Foundation Sports worked professionally and competently with both Vision and the healthy weight team to improve the project with the aim of ensuring it achieves the outcome of reducing childhood obesity in a sustainable manner."
