Quality sport and activity instruction that is age-appropriate and offers sufficient choice to attract boys and girls across the entire age range of 5-12 years.
Activate Sport have grown from providing specialist football and cricket courses in 2004 to the sport, activity and adventure camps run today; offering a range of key sports, multi-sport, multi-activity and dance & drama.
Our dynamic, enthusiastic and motivated team are continually enhancing our courses and content to ensure that all children enjoy the best possible Activate Sport camp experience, regardless of age or ability level.
Activate Action & Adventure camps continue to evolve and offer new and exciting activities for children to try. These include archery, climbing & abseiling, rock-it-ball and inflatable activities such as Bungee Running. Look out for more fun activities added to the curriculum this and every year.
Our Gold Medal Games camps offer a great opportunity for participants to try a variety of Olympic sports. With the next games just around the corner it gives children a chance to participate in mainstream individual and team sports as well as some that are not so well known. 2012 will see either the Annabel Croft Tennis Aacdemy or Hockey Masterclass run at each location.
All of our programmes are written and delivered by qualified professional instructors
In addition to this we are fortunate to have professional sports people who, as well as being integral and committed members of the Activate Sport team, are involved with devising some of the key sport programmes:
Luke Sutton, a founder of Activate Sport and ex County Cricket Club player with Somerset, Derbyshire and Lancashire, devises our cricket programme and now focuses his attention on giving under privileged children an opportunity to participate in sport through the Activate Sport Foundation.
We are delighted to be running the Andrew Flintoff Cricket Academy. This year the Academy, for children aged 5-16 years, will operate at over 40 venues across the UK with Fred or another international cricketer visiting every course to give the children a truly memorable experience.
The Lee Westwood Golf Academyreturns this summer for children aged 7-16 years. We congratulate Lee on becoming the world number 1 player in 2010 and look forward to working with him again this summer. Lee's academies will be at 8 golf clubs throughout the UK with Lee or a European tour player visiting every camp. Look out for our 5-day residential courses at Bloxham School and new in 2012 at Ashville College.

In 2008 he was voted World Player of the Year, and either Shane or another International player will be visiting each of his academies to pass on tips to youngsters aged 7-16 years. Key features of the academy are speed, agility and quickness sessions and our Fuel for Sport programme.

One of Jade, or our former England Captain's, Tracey Neville, Olivia Murphy and Karen Atkinson will take the role of lead coach for a day at each venue and share their knowledge to all players aged 7 to 16 years old.
2011 saw the launch of the Annabel Croft Tennis Academy for children aged 5-16 years. The Academy will be in more venues in 2012 as it runs on many of our Gold medal Games weeks. With a programme designed by Annabel, attendees are guaranteed a fantastic opportunity to improve their tennis skills from the former British number 1. The academy runs all year round at the National Tennis Centre in Roehampton.
Hockey Masterclass launched in 2011 with a curriculum designed by Crista Cullen, one of the leading female players in the UK. One of the days on each course will be led by a current GB or England international, providing children aged 7-16 years with an opportunity to learn from some of the very best players the UK have produced.
We have some fantastic instructors working on all of our courses and their tireless efforts and boundless enthusiasm help to make each week on an Activate Sport camp one to remember.
