Meet The R66t Academy Coaches

Exceptional camps deserve extraordinary coaches. That’s why we work hard throughout the year to find the very best individuals to work on our camps. Because of their iconic red uniforms, we call these remarkable individuals ‘Red Tops’. From sports coaches to teachers, our Red Tops are chosen for their energy, enthusiasm and passion for getting children active. We call this magical formula ‘The Kings Factor’.

Every Red Top has a bright personality, loves getting active and is dedicated to giving each child the best experience possible. There’ll be one dedicated Red Top leading the RedTots sessions.

“Everyone was always happy and upbeat, my son always has a great time at Kings Camps”
