There is no doubting the benefits that pupils derive from sport. As well as developing sporting ability alongside that all-important competitive edge, sport can teach children about the importance of team work, and even how to take victory magnanimously – and defeat gallantly.
But the demands of day-to-day academic learning sometimes mean that parents and schools cannot provide children with as much access to quality sports education as they would wish.
Additional or extra-curricular sports clubs and holiday sports clubs can be an excellent way to address this need. They are an increasingly popular and effective way of meeting the requirements and ambitions of schools, parents and most importantly, pupils.
Schools benefit by being able to offer even more quality sports education to their pupils, whilst making a substantial additional income.
Parents want their children to be enriched by sport – with all the passion, confidence and tenacity it can instil. Crucially, it also means the school day can be extended so parents can meet work commitments more easily.
But setting up after-school sports clubs and holiday clubs might seem too time-consuming and complex for some school heads and teaching staff.
