We are very aware about concerns around the coronavirus, COVID-19, and are monitoring the situation and listening to government advice about how it could impact future events; including Sports Plus. You can read our Director's statement here.
We made the hard decision to cancel both Dublin and Perth Sports Plus at the end of April and have now had to cancel the remaining five camps - Brecon, Belfast 1 & 2, Monkton and Repton Sports Plus. Below are wider statements for each camp.

We have had to make some hard decisions and it is with a heavy heart that we have to cancel Dublin and Perth Sports Plus 2020.
Given the current government guidance on public gatherings, continued social distancing for the coming months and the medical factors of running a camp with Covid-19, I’m sure you’ll understand we simply cannot run the camp this year while ensuring the health and safety of all young people and leaders.
We will issue full refunds on all payments made, including deposits. All those booked will have received an email outlining how to request a refund but if not please click here to contact us.
The prospect of a summer without Sports Plus is a very disappointing one and, as previously mentioned, there has been a lot of thinking towards an online Sports Plus experience - this could be an exciting prospect!

We have tried to leave our decision as late as possible as we worked through whether we could safely run Sports Plus. We have been in ongoing discussions with the schools regarding their ability, in the current climate, to still accommodate us alongside the latest government guidance. Last week it became clear that conditions could not exist for a residential camp this summer and so we were left with no other option but to cancel.
