Classes for Children

a BIG change!

If you read January’s newsletter (and if not, why not?!? – see below why you should be subscribed and how to sign up) You will know that I’d been thinking for a while about how well the free trials that we offer work.

Since we began we have offered a free trial for everyone, so they can come along, see what we do and check that their child enjoys the classes before signing up. However, over many months I have been feeling that this just doesn’t work as well as it should. The first session can often be overwhelming for many children, particularly younger children, and they may not want to join in or not until near the end of the session. Also, it is exciting – a big space where they can run around and have loads of equipment to play with, lots of new faces and they just don’t want to follow what is going on. For parents, this can be sometimes concerning, especially when they feel that it is only their child not following the class (it’s really not) and no amount of reassurance helps. Some give it a go, but often they feel their child may be too young or it isn’t the right fit for them.

I have decided on a solution!

I am going to end free trials and introduce the no obligation ‘half price first month’ (although I may need to come up with a catchier name!)

So from 1st March, there will be no more free trials. You can instead sign up to attend 4 weeks of sessions for only £12, so you can get a real taste of what the classes are like and children will be able to really settle in and see if it is right for them.

I really feel like this will work and for anyone that has been unsure about joining us, why not try this?

From 1st March, instead of seeing the option to book a free trial on our website, you will now have the option to book and pay for the 4 weeks for £12. If you’d like to register your interest in the meantime, then please just get in touch and I’ll forward the details closer to the time.

I’ll look forward to seeing you soon!

Is yours broken yet and fantastic news!

Happy New Year to you all – I hope 2019 is a great one for you and your family. So is it broken yet? What I’m referring to is the new years resolutions that we make every January. The top resolutions are of course to lose weight, exercise more and save money but it is…

Did you know how important you are?…

This week is Parents in Sport week which is a week to focus on the role of a parent in helping their children reach their potential in sport. (When I talk about parents, I am referring to any parent, guardian, aunt, uncle, grandad, nana etc who brings a child to one of our sessions!) From…

60 minutes EVERY DAY!

Now, I don’t think I’ve mentioned it but Leapfrog Sports recently won an award.. best for getting active (we also came runners up in the Best for Toddlers too!) I am very proud of this award because we really believe in the importance of getting children active, for both their physical and mental well-being. But…

Don’t just take my word for it…

I LOVE our classes, I really do. In fact the whole way they are designed is because I am a parent with active children and I couldn’t find any other sessions like these and I was sure that other children and parents would love our classes too. Last week I released our brand new video…

Here are the video and photos!!

A few weeks ago we had a very special Leapfrog Sports party afternoon, where we invited some of our Leapfroggers and their parents along and had an afternoon of fun, getting active playing games and sports with loads of the equipment. Sounds great, but why am I telling you this?? Because while we were there…

You’ll never guess what?! We’ve only gone and won!!!

I am so proud and happy to announce that we are the WINNERS in the Hoop Awards 2018 category ‘Best for getting Active – Birmingham’!! and to make it even better we were runners up in the ‘Best for Toddlers – Birmingham’ category! Thank you so much to everyone that took the time to vote…

School holidays are such hard work (and expensive!)

I have 2 boys (6 & 4 years old) who are on holiday from school and as I mentioned before they are FULL of energy. In fact, my eldest son Lucas was the whole reason that I started Leapfrog Sports as I wanted a way that wasn’t just football for him to burn off his…

I am sorry… but I just wanted to share this!

So firstly, my apologies! I know that last week I said that in this blog I would share some ways that you can get your children active and also the importance of children being active but we have had some fantastic news that I wanted to share… We have been nominated and are finalists in…

Is this the new norm?

I’m sure you have come across these adverts from Cancer Research while you have been out and about, and everyday I seem to hear more and more stats about how the population is getting bigger and that soon being obese will be the new norm. It is clearly a problem and a growing problem caused…
