Classes for Children

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 our perspective, it is a chance to say a big thank you to our fantastic parents who bring their children to classes each week and provide help and encouragement to the children and not just your own! I know at the weekend it might not always be easy to get up and out (on time!) to get to classes after a busy and tiring week, and so we appreciate seeing everyone of you and the support that you give to our coaches too!

I know through running the sessions, how much it means to the children to have you there. They LOVE sharing activities with you and having time to play with you and happily run off to get you involved in whatever skill we are working on that week.

But, why does the parent matter so much??

The importance of the parent cannot be underestimated. Parents are so important because they can:

  • encourage their children to take up, enjoy and achieve in sport
  • support their children in practical ways – such as by providing transport or buying kit
  • help out with activities
  • support and motivate their child and/or the team
  • reinforce positive aspects of sports participation

They couldn’t do it without you!

The role of the parent is also about ensuring children are kept safe – something that is key to Leapfrog – so by choosing us, you can be assured that staff have Enhanced DBS checks, safeguarding qualifications, coaching qualifications and are first Aid trained.

We love our parents at Leapfrog and are thankful to everyone of you for beginning your child’s journey in the world of sport with us!

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…

Option Three

Back in 2014, I launched my multi-sports classes to help children, to enjoy a variety of sports without the financial and logistical difficulties associated with multiple classes. Leapfrog Sports was born, and in the last three years, it’s gone from strength to strength – and now hundreds of children came along to the classes run…

Meet the team (Part 8) Ariana Grande and Mushrooms?!

Hi Everyone, As promised this week it is the turn of Lydia, who is one of our Assistant Coaches at Alderbrook school on Saturday morning. She has now been working with us for about 6 weeks and I thought it was time to get to know Lydia better with the help of our insightful questions!…
