Teens – we’ve got you!
We provide our Multi Active programme for teens up to 14 years, and Rookie Academy for 15-17s. Each programme offers multiple activities, fun and a social experience and we aim to build confidence, leadership and sports skills. We know that being a teen isn’t always easy, so we do all we can to provide the right mix of challenge, structure and enjoyment.
Multi-Active provides an active, challenging and progressive experience. It’s an opportunity for 12 – 14s to enjoy a variety of sports and activities, hang-out with friends and make new friends. Our Red Tops deliver high-energy activity sessions including Football, Swimming, Dodgeball, Capture the Flag and lots more.
As well as enjoying lots of activities, teens develop confidence and life-skills such as teamwork, leadership and cooperation (in extreme cases parents even tell us as a result of their teens attendance at Kings Camps their teen helps more at home ?)
From 15, teens attending the Rookie Academy work and play alongside our Red Tops. Rookies enjoy activities, develop leadership skills, improve confidence levels and often they go on to work as one of our team.
Rookie Academy has three levels, each level takes at least two weeks to complete, and a minimum number of hours to be logged. A maximum of one level can be completed each season. The Rookie Academy, specifically Level 3, has been quality assured and endorsed by 1st4sport.
During each level, Rookies will receive:
The programme links practical experience and activities with theory. Rookies develop confidence and leadership skills such as planning, organisation, self-reflection and problem solving. A Level 3 Diploma Certificate is available on completion of all 3 levels, and certificates can be added to CVs and higher education applications.
Using the Rookie Academy workbook, and supported by Red Tops, teens complete tasks and learn about activity coaching and topics such as health and safety (we make it more interesting than it sounds!), activity-session planning and delivery, techniques for managing child behaviour, assessing and analysing performance and target setting. Rookies progress to lead their own sessions under the supervision of our professional team.
Rookie Academy is proven to help teens considering a career in sport, coaching and education. After completing the programme and turning 18, many Rookies return and work for us.
