Sunday 11th to Friday 16th July
Sports Plus is a week of specialist sports coaching and team competitions for young people who are serious about sport and play regularly in a club or team. Sports Plus is the perfect way to improve in your sport, while exploring more about the Christian faith and what it means to be a Christian sports player.
The first sports on offer are: Football, Hockey, Netball, Swimming & Triathlon*
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 or would have been playing had Covid restrictions not prevented it. 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.
Please note we may be required to withdraw sports from the list offered if Covid restrictions dictate or if we do not receive sufficient bookings and are therefore unable to run viable coaching sessions. In this instance those booked will be offered an alternative option.
*Young people must have completed a multi sport event, be able to swim 200m without stopping, competently ride a bike and be able to run 1500m without stopping.
Perth Sports Plus is for young people in P7 to S5 in January 2021; or equivalent years if a young person attends school outside of Scotland.
Please note young people must be aged 17 or under for the duration of the week to attend Sports Plus. Those in the school years above who turn 18 prior to the start of Sports Plus should apply to the Trainee Programme.
Sports Plus costs £320; with a reduced rate of £185. The reduced rate is subsidised by the Sports Plus Bursary Fund and is accessible for families to which the full cost is not affordable.
