Sport
There are over five hours of sport a day and so we want to ensure that young people have the stamina to meet the demands of the week, enabling them to progress in their sport. We expect young people to select a sport they play regularly in a club or team and if a young person does not play their chosen sport regularly in a club or team we will contact the parent/guardian to discuss whether Sports Plus is a suitable camp for the young person and may request a reference from a coach/PE teacher to support the booking. If you would like to discuss this before making a booking please contact the office using the details below.
