Where we began …

Back in 2014, as a mum with two young sons with seemingly endless amounts of energy, I started looking for ways for my boys to burn that energy off.

They’ve always loved running around and throwing balls (of a variety of shapes), and hadn’t been biased towards one particular sport, so I thought I’d try and find them some activities that allowed them to enjoy a variety of different sports under the same umbrella.

Easier said than done.  Football? Yes, but just football. Tennis? Yes, but just tennis. Rugby? Same old story.

I realised that in order to keep my boys happy and get them to the activities they wanted to do, I was going to have to do two things:

  • Run myself ragged, driving them all over town to their various different activities.
  • Spend a small fortune on these various different club and societies.

There had to be a better way.

About Leapfrog Sports

From the start!

Taking matters into my own hands, I decided to launch my very own multi-sports classes to help children, just like mine, to enjoy a variety of sports without the financial and logistical difficulties associated with multiple classes.

The rest is history.  Leapfrog Sports was born, and over the years, it’s gone from strength to strength – and now hundreds of children came along to the classes run by our qualified coaches and we also provide multi-sports sessions for children in Early Years Foundation Stages to Key Stage 1 in nurseries and schools throughout the Midlands.

Why are our classes special?

Leapfrog Sports classes are more than just physical, centred around the children having fun and developing their personal and social skills. It provides a way for children to be active and start to get involved with sport from an early age, which will help them on the first steps to achieving a lifelong love of sport and all the benefits that being active brings.

The programme has been designed to blend the Fundamentals of Movement (core sports skills: balance, co-ordination and agility) and the 5 Cs (Competence, Confidence, Connection, Character and caring, Creativity) for personal and social development.

The key to Leapfrog Sports, is that we don’t just specialise in one sport, especially at such a young age, we follow a programme based around a variety of different sports to enable the children to discover what they enjoy and to develop well rounded core skills.

UK Coaching and many more studies are showing that specialising in just one sport can have a negative effect, suffer with injuries and miss out developing essential skills. By sampling a variety of sports children are less likely to get bored, develop a huge range of skills and be more likely to have a lifelong love of sports.
