At Excel Sports Academy, summer is all about fun outside.

Summer All Sports

We offer a range of activities over the week to encourage your child to run, jump, hit, catch and throw.

From football to badminton, quick cricket to thunderball, variety is what we do well. Our staff are hand picked, and trained to ensure that from the start of your child's first day, they are greeted and made to feel welcome, made part of a team and make new friends quickly.

For those children who might feel apprehensive on Monday morning, our aim is to have them happy (and tired) by Monday afternoon.

Each week, we offer a water fight - with water guns to add to the fun (weather permitting), a dressing up day, film making day, tournaments, the end of week ceremony and film show, which parents and carers are invited to attend.

You'll also have the opportunity to chat to the coaching staff who can give feedback on your child's week and progression.

Now in our 25th year, the camps are led by our experienced staff, some of the whom attended Excel camps themselves. Excel continues to be the number one venue for 150+ children each week.

Please note, our classes fill up quickly so book early to avoid disappointment. Be sure to check out the massive variety of Excel Activities you can add to enhance your child's week.

All equipment is provided but you are welcome to bring your own specialist equipment if you prefer e.g. tennis racket.

Remember your order ref no as you will need this to sign your child in and out of camp.

Wear clothing suitable for the season and a full active day eg shorts and tracksuit bottoms, trainers, fleece and a waterproof. We like to get outside as much as possible.

Due to allergies Excel does not provide food. Bring snacks and a packed lunch full of nutritous food fit for a full, active day. Sweets are not a good source of energy! St George's often provide a snack at the end of the day but this will be given after sign out, to allow you to decide if it is suitable.

Bring a refillable water bottle. Water is available at the water fountains for refills.

If you need to bring medicine you will be asked to fill out a form at the start of the week and this will be kept stored for you in case it is required. This can be stored in a fridge if required.

Please do not bring ipads, tablets or telephones. If you do need a telephone, you will be asked to hand it in at the start of the day. This is to protect the taking of images of children.
