Holiday Sport Courses

The aim of our holiday sport courses is to provide a combination of focus and fun so that your child can enjoy themselves, make new friends, and at the same time improve their individual sporting talents.

Bryanston's 400 acres are an impressive setting for the sports courses and include extensive playing fields bordered by the river Stour. The new sports hall provides excellent facilities. Overall the grounds, combined with the superb indoor and outdoor facilities Bryanston has to offer, provides the perfect environment for participants to focus on developing their skills and enjoy their sport.

Important information 

Safety and Supervision
The safety of the children is of paramount importance.  All coaches have professional coaching qualifications.  Coaching will be in groups small enough to ensure individual attention but large enough to enable the children to practise unit skills.  All other physical activities will be supervised by appropriately qualified staff.  When not being coached, the children will be in the care of experienced staff who will look after all aspects of welfare and enjoyment as well as providing a sympathetic ear when required.

Meals and Refreshments

All meals will be provided in the Dining Hall where there is a variety of healthy options, both hot and cold, including a salad bar. Snacks and drinks can be purchased from our Café. There will be refreshments breaks between coaching sessions. All players are asked to bring a water bottle with them.

Activities
In addition to the high level of coaching the children are also given the opportunity to participate in other activities.  This not only gives them the chance to experience a range of pursuits but also provides a break from the main sport interest.Activities may include kayaking on the river, climbing on our superb purpose-built climbing tower, squash, swimming and badminton.

Dress Code and Equipment
A full kit list for each sport will be provided prior to the start of the course.  Suitable attire for each course will need to be worn with children bringing their own cricket bat, tennis racket, hockey stick as appropriate.  For the riding course participants need to have their own horse/pony.

 

Summer Riding Course (Ages 8-15)

-

All coaches are specifically trained to be able to adapt the courses to meet individual needs.  Specific attention will be given to individual technical skills. The main coaching will take place either in the morning or afternoon, with other sports activities being undertaken at other times.

Riders will need to have their own horse/pony, which will be stabled in the beautiful Georgian Grade 1 listed, red-brick stable block.  Riders should provide their own feed and bedding for their horse/pony.  Alternatively we can provide this at an additional cost.

In order for the coaches to construct a plan for the course to suit all children, all parents will be asked to fill out a form shortly after booking. The form will ask details of the ability and experience of the rider as well as some details of the pony itself.

Course Aims

Our aim is to ensure that every rider improves their skills as well as having a thoroughly enjoyable week.
