Kid’s football – the best of times

Kids football

English football is thriving. You wouldn’t believe it with the national team’s performances at Euro 2016, but youth football is increasingly popular.

National Fitness Day – 7th September 2016


Hello there, how are doing? Hope you’re still trying to keep fit and active yourself along with your children. Pretty difficult I know at the moment with all the rain we’ve had. I just can’t work it out, one minute I need my sunglasses and sun cream, the next my coat and umbrella. I had […]

Find what they love

Find what they love

The best way of keeping your children committed to doing exercise is to find what they love. Unfortunately, though, life isn’t that simple. Children of younger years, in particular, don’t quite yet know where their instincts are going to take them – and their peer group is everything. But the benefits of doing exercise from […]

Team Sports Can Boost Your Child’s Self Esteem


Your child’s level of self-esteem is so important to their success and happiness throughout life. A positive self-esteem is key to a psychological wellbeing.
