Get Active Sports Kid’s to Coach’s
There is no better feeling that watching a young person come from School work experience and joining Get Active as a Sports apprentice and growing into a Full time Sports Coach or in some case’s even being a child at one of our Holiday camps and then joining our team as an Active Care Coach running their own sessions. The journey they take is truly a wonderful one and we couldn’t be more proud to say how much we enjoy watching these young people follow their dreams of working in sport and helping them to make it happen.
As a business that teaches children to be active and creative weather that be at one of our Holiday camps , or at school during the term time, to be able to say that not only have we taught kid’s to be coach’s by our program starting from a junior leader at camp, to then work experience and then onto a work Sports Coach apprenticeship course ending with a full time experienced member of the team is truly amazing.
We can honestly say , that your child will learn by Get Active Sports NOW and may even lead onto their FUTURE.

The journey with Get Active Sports
My first involvement with Get Active sports was doing work experience when I was at school. From an early age I always wanted to be a PE teacher. I felt that doing work experience with Get Active Sports would allow me to achieve my goal. After thoroughly enjoying my two weeks work experience with Get Active sports, they offered me a one-year apprenticeship course. I jumped at the chance as it was perfect for me.
During my year apprenticeship I learnt a lot about coaching and I enhanced my skills working in schools and with children. I loved working the holiday camps and PE lessons in the term time. The apprenticeship offers frequent meetings and catch ups with a suitable manager, or your mentor on the apprenticeship. The coursework side was nothing to worry about, with regular meetings and sessions there was plenty of time to do coursework. I Quickly gained good knowledge, confidence, qualifications and a further enthusiasm to be a PE teacher.
I have now been a full-time coach with Get Active sports for 1 year now and enjoying work every day.
A day in the life of Get Active is always a fun day!
