Judo clubs take place on a Monday before school (for both boys and girls) and is an excellent opportunity for children to develop self-confidence, co-ordination , strength and suppleness. Similar in style to wrestling, it involves no punching or kicking and is run by Adam Welford, a British Judo Association coach, who can provide a kit for your child to borrow at sessions free of charge. The children will learn many skills which are transferable to other sports such as agility and, balance and co-ordination. Competitions against each other take place throughout the year with medals awarded and a weekly award is given out in assembly. This is available for children in Years 2-5.
This club in run by Premier Sports. This is just about the coolest thing you can do for your kids. They'll get the moves and gain confidence to express themselves in the style they see and love in music videos and movies.
Your kids will learn about things like:
Locking – that distinctive way of ‘freezing’ between moves
Popping – the jerky moves. Think Michael Jackson and Justin Timberlake
Breaking – you know about Break Dancing!
Krumping – straight out of LA, sharp and very stylish!
They get started and get moving with a warm up session. It’s a great way to break the ice and lose any inhibitions. After learning some basic footwork they develop sequences of moves. They’re soon putting together a continuous dance. This is a high energy, and really productive, activity. By the time the class is over they’ll all have grasped some basic choreography. Best of all? They’re stepping up in confidence and fitness while they do the steps that make them feel cool. They’re learning about teamwork while working the moves like they were in a video? Children attending these activities can also work towards their Arts Award. This is available for children in Year 1-6.
